Tom Ray's Art Podcast is a podcast about trying to become a full-time artist.
Each episode I meet artists of all types and places in their careers. Beginners, hobbyists and professionals.
I'm Tom Ray and I started this show because I wanted to get back into making art and getting involved with the art community where I live in Madison, WI. And what better way to do that than to find artists and talk to them directly. I wanted to hear about how people create, promote themselves and in the meantime still manage their own well-being.
