    Self-sabotage.

    Self-sabotage.

    In this episode, I'll talk about creative self-sabotage. Do you feel close to reaching a goal but something keeps getting in your way? Maybe you don't even realize it's happening. Self-sabotage looks different for everyone. I define creative self-sabotage as a habit or behavior that prevents you from creating the things you want to create. In this episode, I'll talk about 5 types of self-sabotage: Over-committing, Over-editing, Being a Prisoner to Your Formula, Re-inventing the Wheel, and Looking for Perfect. I'll describe the thought patterns and behaviors of these types and offer an exercise to help you work through it. Let's stop self-sabotaging!

    Making art in dark times.

    Making art in dark times.

    It's a dark f*****g time. I think many of us feel this way. And when you're making art during a dark period, it's easy to question why you're doing it. What is the value of this work? How is it having an impact? In this episode, I offer a different way to think about the importance of making art during times of darkness.

    Making money and making art. (Part II)

    Making money and making art. (Part II)

    In the second episode of our money series, we're talking about your RULES. For most artists, their creative lives and their financial lives are tangled in a very messy way. In this episode we're asking a different set of questions: What does your creative life need to thrive? What does your financial life need to thrive? We'll talk about how you can separate these two areas of your life so it empowers you vs. holds you back from creating what you want.

Food for Art-Making

I am so grateful that I came across this podcast. I’m a busy mom and this podcast helps me stay connected to my creative practice. Christine offers really great tools to keep developing as an artist in an intentional and meaningful way.

So helpful in getting out of a rut!

I’m a lifelong artist but have often struggled to get out of my own way when it comes to my art practice and process. This podcast has been so helpful for me because it moves past the romantic notion of the endlessly inspired, prolific masterpiece-generating “artist,” and addresses so many of the real-life experiences and concerns of creative people. Christine’s knowledge and advice is obviously grounded in her own process of struggle, searching, discovery, and finally a synthesis of relevant research. Because she knows this process inside and out, her words really resonate with the struggling but determined artist in me!

for everyone

super helpful insights and perspectives on how to identify and work thru the stories and behaviors that obstruct us from our creative flow state. i especially encourage you to listen if you don’t identify as an artist—the story that creativity is reserved for “creatives” is a script to flip. thank you christine!
