Just what an aspiring artist needs

Thank you, Marika for creating such an inspiring podcast. I found your thoughts and guidance into how to start one’s own creative journey extremely insightful and made me think about how fragile we all are. I think this podcast is a great place to start for any fledgling artist, whatever their medium.

This new podcast is a fresh breath of creative inspiration. Marika’s openness and perspective has me...well, curious and absolutely excited to lean into and, more importantly, explore and trust my creativity! I would write more, but Marika has me motivated to go and pick-up a paint brush! Thanks Marika!
