    Quote:  "The main thing is to shift that around to a mindset of; this is actually an act of love for myself and an acknowledgement and a confirmation of the value of the work that I do and that I deserve to be paid for that. "

    Quote: "If you continually deny a voice inside of you that's telling you something is wrong for you then you are continually betraying yourself"

    41. Sharon Hughes - Artist Interview

    41. Sharon Hughes - Artist Interview

    Welcome to season 3 of my podcast. I can't believe we are here already!

    I'm celebrating this milestone by bringing you my first artist interview. Sharon Hughes is a past student of mine and creates the most beautiful, calming abstract paintings.

    In our chat Sharon shares a moment of creative breakthrough and in contrast a dark moment in her journey towards finding her authentic style.

    I hope you enjoy the episode.


    A breakthrough moment in her painting
    How she navigated an emotionally tough moment within her art practice.
    How 'marinating' in learning allows space to find a visual language unique and true to ones self.

    "For me the biggest breakthrough is being able to explore. Being able to play with your paints without pressure and without feeling like there needs to be an outcome because its costing you a lot of money."

    I hope you enjoy the episode.

Helpful for Artists at All Stages!

This podcast provides an incredible wealth of information and advice for artists at all stages! I’m a few years out of art undergrad and lost my job at the start of the 2020 pandemic. I took it as an opportunity to turn my attention back to my art practice full time and stumbled upon this absolute gem. This podcast has been my guiding light and mentor at a time when I can’t afford a coach or even see my artist friends. Susan’s mindful and gentle approach to mentorship leaves me feeling motivated and inspired. Can’t say thank you enough! Highly recommend! -Ellen VanderMyde

So helpful and insightful! ,

Absolutely Love This Podcast

This podcast is such a gift to me as an artist in the middle of a spiritual and soulful awakening. Hearing your beautiful insights and reflections on your own practice have landed with resonance in my own practice all the way across the world from you. I particularly love when you share about the spiritual aspects of your practice and would love more deep episodes like the one with your healing friend, Myree. Thank you for sharing your creative spirit so openly and generously.
