Everyone is an artist

I’m hooked on The Art Life! Xandra and Grace are an amazing duo. There are so many takeaways from each episode, but the biggest takeaway is that we are all artists. Give this podcast a go, it’s life altering!

Grace & Xandra bring a breath of fresh air to podcasts!

I listen to a LOT of podcasts. All of them, apart from one, center around discussing art and entertainment. I was starting to get a little burnt out by them, then THE ART LIFE came along.

Grace & Xandra bring a breath of fresh air to podcasts. First of all, their voices are like honey. Calm, loving and oozing poise, this is the most relaxing podcast I’ve ever listened to.

More importantly, their discussion of art as a philosophy and approach to life is simply inspiring. Sprinkled with little stories from each of their journeys as artists, you feel as if you’re just chatting with an old friend over tea.

Already each episode has encouraged me to think and dwell upon art in totally new ways, and I feel myself challenging limiting beliefs in myself.

10/10 would recommend!

The Art Life is the good life!

What a joy to listen to! So much here to inspire...coffeeshop, bookstore wanderings, climate change, Russian deli's, smelling things for fun, the not dividing into artist/non-artist, parfume making in Tuscany...Reminds that it is not an indulgence to focus on art - love it!
