Making art should be easy. But let’s be honest: Art is messy. (Heck, life is messy!)

Together with me, Caylee Grey, we’ll explore what it REALLY means to be an artist. Practically. Warts and all. So that you can be an artist, today, now, even if you work a day job, have a million and one commitments, and own a cat that likes sitting on your art.

No more excuses. Okay? Okay.

    Dance Naked in Perfection's Face with T Grey

    Dance Naked in Perfection's Face with T Grey

    Every guest I have on the podcast is my favourite, but this is my favourite favourite and most exciting. It's someone who excites me every day. My husband, T Grey. We're talking about what it's like being on the other side of someone who lives life creatively. We get into the way his logical, rock solid, INTJ brain sees art, and his evil plans for not allowing me to own all the dogs I want to own.

    Intuitive Art for the Recovering Perfectionist with Iris Fritschi-Cussens

    Intuitive Art for the Recovering Perfectionist with Iris Fritschi-Cussens

    This is the story of what happens when a perfectionist decides to actively go against her own nature in lieu of making the art that her soul needs.
    Iris and I talk about her brave decision to deliberately choose wonkiness, ignore self-doubt, and go for process over product in order to live her true creative life.
    If you're a perfectionist, Iris will encourage you to give yourself permission for your recovery to start with art.

    How to Collaborate with Other Artists

    How to Collaborate with Other Artists

    The Get Messy Season of Collaboration was in January. But community continues to be a Big Deal to us Messy Artists.
    If you've ever experienced a creative drought, you'll know the impact that your creative family can have on helping you through it, giving tips on finding the other side, and making you feel less alone in your struggle.
    If you've ever experienced a creative high, you'll know how much higher it feels when you share your wins and celebrate your creative flow with others.
    In this episode of the Get Messy podcast, I'm calling on the combined knowledge of a small group of Messians. Traci and Meghan, Jenna and Dawn, and Sarah and Melenia share what they learned and what they gained from their creative connection during Get Messy's Season of Collaboration.
    Our guests in this episode:
    Meghan: @happy.hands.create
    Traci: @thisistruleetraci
    Jenna: @ginnistonik
    Dawn: @shareyourjoy13
    Sarah: @juicy.s.art
    Melenia: @agap_melenia

    Collaboration for Art and Heart with Char + Claudette

    Collaboration for Art and Heart with Char + Claudette

    For the month of January, we focused on creative collaboration at Get Messy. Claudette Hasenjager and Char DeRouin led the way to nurture a safe space for artists to find their creative soul mate. For just the month, or for beyond.
    This excitement about creative collaboration stemmed from their own experiences collaborating with each other. In this episode, we discuss their fears, style mixing, and mutual fangirling while being each other's personal cheerleader. We discuss the best way to find someone to collaborate with, what working with another artist has done to their own work, and just generally get mushy about each other.
    It's a vrou-mance (an Afrikaans version of Bro-mance for women) and it's beautiful to listen to. By the end of the episode, you'll be rushing to your phone to invite one of your favourites to make some art with you.

    Art as a Must Do Rather than a Nice to Do with Gilly Welch

    Art as a Must Do Rather than a Nice to Do with Gilly Welch

    In this Messy Conversations episode, Jenna chats with Gilly about her creative process and thinking around art journaling. They discuss how art journaling encormpasses everything and how you make it what you want it to be.

    Gilly shares how she's able to be creative every single day due to the freedom given - no boundaries, and no rules.

    We are all busy but when we put small bits together with pockets of time, it starts to make a huge difference.

    Creating After a Drought, Art Meditation, and other Questions

    Creating After a Drought, Art Meditation, and other Questions

    This is an AMA (Ask Me Anything) episode, where you're the one who asks me anything and I'm the one who answers. We cover a host of topics, mostly about supplies and where I'm at in my creative practice.

    I share my favourite tools, classes, and resources for making art.

    I discuss themes I'm processing through art (now and always), coming back to art after a creative drought, and a new way I'm merging meditation with creation.

    A host of miscellaneous questions and answers.

    And an in depth look at my love for white hair and #ff66cc.

Art, Creativity, and Connection

I like to listen to this podcast to accompany me while I make art. It provides deep conversations about what does it mean to call yourself an artist to practical solutions for carving out time for art.

The host’s voice is so soothing

I could listen to Caylee and her friends talk about making art and the creative process all day. Wonderful podcast!

Inspiring and motivating

Loved hearing about other creatives methods for getting ‘into it’. The long episode with Wendy was like sitting with friends and very motivating! Elaine K talking about journaling stuck with me and is influencing my journaling practice. A true test of a good podcast, I have gone back into the transcripts to write down some juicy nuggets. Thank you!
