Episode 4

What are the better questions to ask myself as an artist? /4

See Michele's stunning exhibition Shared Wavelengths online at Fenton&Fenton Gallery.


Bec and Michele talk about how seductive it can be (especially at the beginning of our art career) to focus on questions like: How do I make pretty art? What's worked for me before? Is this saleable? When we can ask much more powerful questions like: What does this art mean to me? What makes the process irresistible for me? How do I want to feel in the studio? Let's be curious monkeys together.

Bec quotes Eric Maisel from his book "A Writer's Space"
