In recent years I have really jumped on the podcast bandwagon, I adore being able to get new information while getting on with other things at the same time! Having a regular voice in my ears makes me feel part of a bigger art community and keeps me company in the studio.
So scrolling through my podcast list I thought I would share some of my ‘go to’ podcasts that have had a big impact on the way I think about my art practice.
I absolutely adore this one! Andy J Pizza has an amazing ability to inspire and enthuse, he gets to the bottom of what art-making is all about and speaks from the soul. He is authentic and uses an analogy to paint a picture of the concepts in a way that remains with you long after the podcast has finished.
His lessons have influenced the way I view my creative practice, but there are also some gems in there for the way to approach life. I can’t help but feel ‘pepped’ after tuning in to the creative pep talk.
An honest delve into the world of being a working artist, lots of conversations about motivation and mindset and forging your own path. I love the fun relaxed approach, the understanding of what drives artists to create and how to navigate the art world while keeping your integrity. This podcast is a bit like a warm hug, providing positivity and reassurance and reminding us that we aren’t alone.
A very practical podcast about making a career as an artist, Laura Boswell is a printmaker and Peter Keegan as a portrait painter offer unique insights into how they make a living from their work, challenges they face as well as answering listener questions. It’s a conversational yet very informative podcast that is an honest look into the practicalities, such as photographing work, pricing, time management and even how to deal with ‘creative block’.
