    24: Mya Bessette on Her Abstract Landscape Paintings + Creative Process

    This week, I’m chatting with painter Mya Bessette.  Mya creates beautiful abstract landscapes, many of which are inspired by the nature around her home in Bigfork, Montana.  I love how expansive and atmospheric Mya’s paintings are - some of them are more moody and mysterious, and others are bursting with light and color.  Her joy and enthusiasm for art and creativity are totally contagious!  While you’re listening, go check out her work on Instagram @myabessetteart.
    In this episode, Mya shares all about her work, inspiration, process, favorite art materials and more!

    22: Stefanie Bales on Her Ink Transfer Landscape Paintings + Creative Process

    This week, I’m chatting with painter Stefanie Bales.  She lives and creates right here in San Diego, California, and I’ve loved getting to know her in person at our local Rising Tide meetups. Stefanie paints in several different mediums, but in this conversation we talk in detail about her gorgeous ink transfer paintings.  These pieces are SO unique and we dig into all the details of her creative process!  Part painting and part collage, Stefanie’s paintings draw you in with their soft rainbow of colors, life-like details and dreamy landscapes.  Be sure to pull up Stefanie’s work while you’re listening - you can find her on Instagram @stefaniebalesfineart.
    In this episode, Stefanie shares all about her work, inspiration, process, favorite art materials and more!

    21: Do It For The Process

    Have you ever struggled with the question, “Does my art have to mean something?”  In this episode, I share how I think about the meaning of my art, and how my art-making process fits into that.  I talk about why I make art, how I’ve come to understand what it means to me over time, and why I’m fostering a rewarding making experience for myself.

Great interviews!

Hearing artists talk about their work has really gotten my creative juices flowing.

The host asks excellent questions, you can tell she’s excited about the topic, and she’s downright fun. She does a wonderful job of listening and having a real conversation with the guest... one that makes you want to create your own art.

Gotta admit, I want to be friends with her!

So Inspiring!

I just listened to my first Make Share Grow Podcast called “Creating in Collections” and loved it! Just what I needed to get my creative artistic imagination flowing. Julie shares great tips and explains everything in such easy to understand and applicable ways. And I cannot wait to also listen to tips from her guest artists as well.
