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.

    010 The Magic of a Sketchbook with Karen Aben

    010 The Magic of a Sketchbook with Karen Aben

    Once again I am freaking excited about this week's guest on the podcast. This week it's the beautiful Karen Abend. She has a heart of gold and I'm really excited about our chat today. 

    In this episode we discuss the absolute magic of sketchbooks. We discuss how sketchbooks are the root of everything creative, no matter what you call them - sketchbook, art journal, notebook, junk journal... all of those good things.

    I hope you play this while you are creating in your sketchbook, your art journal, whatever you call it. Let's all create together.

    009 Real life is what makes art with Johanna Clough

    009 Real life is what makes art with Johanna Clough

    "You’re putting your life into it so that’s what makes it something special. That’s what makes you appreciate it and other people as well. It really doesn’t matter what you use and it’s funny to say that because I make journals and I’m very passionate about it because I think what you use can inspire you and be a very, very powerful tool to keep you documenting. But at the same time, once you develop the habits and the style and you develop the passion for it, then it’s not going to bother you what you use." – Johanna Clough



    Today in a historical first, I am interviewing Johanna Clough. It’s historical because it’s the first time I am interviewing her, but also the first podcast she has been on, which I am excited about because I am a hardcore Johanna fangirl. I love what she creates, who she is as a person, and the encouragement she brings to the art community.

    Johanna is an absolute delight. This conversation that we had is an absolute delight. You are absolutely going to love it.

    005 How to art with intention with Amy Maricle

    "The only bad art is the art you don't make" - Amy Maricle



    In this podcast, I chat to Amy Maricle about art with intention. Amy shares some of her most profound views on how to become more aware and intentional in your art practice. We discuss what it means to be mindful, how mindfulness changes your art, being zen about thinking big and letting go, the inner critic, Amy's weaknesses, and how to be an artist



    As always, Amy is just bursting with insane wisdom.



    "Mindfulness is about being aware of what is actually happening in the moment instead of getting caught up in the many things that might be going on inside your brain" - Amy Maricle

AmyMaricle ,

Get ready to get creative.

Caylee is such a master encourager- both of beginning artists- but also of her guests. I always feel her enthusiasm for her guests is infectious and I get pulled into their way of thinking and creating, which in turn gives me further creative energy.

Caylee is the expert in this space!

I’ve watched Caylee’s work evolve over the years and this audio version is better than I could have imagined. She is warm and talented and vulnerable, a true expert in this space of encouraging us to make art and discover ourselves in the process. This is a glimpse into her creative world, and I’m thrilled she’s letting us take a peek. I look forward to learning so much more from her!
