Very soporific

It’s nice to listen to Amy for content, but this is a superb podcast for anyone struggling with insomnia. She has a soul-stilling delivery, and she just talks to herself and goes on and on about whatever artsy idea is crossing her mind, so instead of listening to the chatter in your head, you get to listen to the chatter in her head. Rather than worrying about your rent coming due as you try to sleep, you can simply listen to Amy blather on about an art book, or a paintbrush or some such thing, and, before you know it, you’re out like a light. Highly recommended.

A Treasure of Inspiration and Positive Intent!

I am really enjoying Amy’s podcasts. I discovered them a few months ago and have been working backwards to listen to them. I am a book hound and especially appreciate the reviews of art books. I am also grateful that Amy comes from a place that includes the reality of every day life, challenges and small joys that one can find in the experience. And while I know in my heart that my art should be my own without all kinds of rules, I appreciate the encouragement and freedom she suggest to alter or completely change my direction. My mantra with my kids was to believe in yourself and be flexible. I am now learning how to take my own advice. LOL

Wonderful Creativity Podcast

I always look forward to the next Creativity Matters Podcast. The ideas, experiences, observations, and resources Amy shares are such an inspiration, and the sound of her voice alone is enough to put me in a creative mood. This podcast is always a pleasure to listen to!
