Savvy Painter is where you will find your artist community, artist interviews and painting workshops
My encouraging painting buddy!
I have been listening to the Savvy Painter Podcast for nearly a year now and it has become a staple each week. I listen while painting in my studio and it engages my left brain and leaves me feeling encouraged and inspired to keep on painting. Also, I have been introduced to so many different artists that I hadn't known. I can't imagine not having the Savvy Painter as a resource and painting buddy!
I listened to the latest podcast with Sarah Intermann and LOVED it! I felt like I was totally eavesdropping on two artists having a real down to earth conversation. Her impulsive process and shifting mediums was a breath of fresh air. I have to shift things around almost everyday these days to keep myself present. I'm not sure who the artist was that you spoke to that had a separate room for each artistic expression? I'd love that. A reading room, a knitting room, a painting studio, a ceramic studio, a sewing room etc. etc...and of course my nice kitchen to bake in !!!!
My life is chaotic - surprise! And I always try to get to the podcasts and updated on all things 'Savvy'. You continue to be one of my polestars when I am adrift and even though I'm physically IN my studio, I'm just not quite able to 'GET to it' due to other life commitments (teenagers that are on the precipice of leaping) but need help...or maybe a shove !! ha ha :-). I send you peace and love and one day - I swear it - I'm going to write a check and send it your way. I'm just not quite there yet, but will make more of an effort to share your podcast link on a regular basis. Thank you for your thoroughness and follow through and for continuing to create stable, informative, fun, intelligent yet absorbable presentations and interviews. Thank you for staying with it even when you didn't have your computer!!! Wow!
A very important resource for fine art painters
Fantastic podcast. I've been searching for a long time for a podcast that talked about living ones life as a painter and the concerns that come along with making a living on one's Art. Thank you very much for spending the time and resources to produce this great show.
Much needed for artists!
Antrese Wood is doing big things for artists. Love the show!
Just the inspiration I need when I am in the studio.
You gotta get paid!
This is an awesome podcast with great interviews! Thanks for sharing!
Recommended for all artists
As an artist and a business owner, I highly recommend this new podcast. You can learn a lot from listening to this new show!
Awesome Artist Stimuli
I stumbled across this podcast and what a treasure it's been ! Several of the interviewed artists have been ones I admire (Kathleen Dunphy and Kevin MacPherson - Plein Air artists). The host asks great questions and usually gets great advice for those listening. Even though it is simply audio, a wide array of topics have been covered (drawing, painting, business). It's been fun to listen in on what has to be said about the artists origins, dreams, practices, color choices, and interests. As a young aspiring artist, this podcast is very encouraging and I look forward to sharing with my artist circle of friends. Keep up the great work and keep bringing on those Plein Air artists!!
A really valuable podcast for anybody who wants to be a full-time artist.
Great and professional work!
Great podcast to get viewers motivated about art. I am not an artist myself but Antrese Wood makes it easy to listen to and very interesting.
Terrific and informative on the subject matter
This podcast does a terrific job interviewing some of the most interesting contemporary painters around. Any painter can find interesting discussions here from working artist about their various methods and their thinking about the art business and the making of art. Good background information and technical information on working methods is always included and artists often mention surprising insights on their personal development. Antrese is a fun, engaging and interested host and she lets the artists tell their own stories with little prompting. Some aspects of painting discussed might feel a bit obscure to a casual listener, but in-depth interview material is actually the best part of the show, since it is rarely presented in print or other formats. Absolutely recommended for any artist or painter at any level from rank beginner to working professional.
I love Antrese’s passion for the business of art, which is so apparent in this podcast. Sharing these insights with others who are interested in breaking into the business of art is so valuable. Great niche!
Thank you soo much for the heart and passion...
Thank you soo much for the heart and passion you have put into Savvy Painter! I am constantly inspired and challenged by you and your guest. Thank you for making this happen and for pulling our worlds together. I am a Senior CG artist at The Basement in Indianapolis with almost thirteen years in the field. My foundation and true love in fine art, Pen and Ink, and oil painting. My strength is drawing but my goal is impressionism oil painting.
Here are my top two struggles. With impressionism with oils...is "when to stop." I tend to push the painting past the moment when I should stop...losing the brush strokes, color, and original heart of the painting. My second struggle is finding time as s a husband, father of two, and full time employee. I can't put into words how blessed I am but I struggle while finding time to put paint to the canvas and learning more. Drawing is different...I draw all the time while working, while at lunch.
Thank you again for your heart and passion you put into Savvy Painter. Continue doing what you do and blessing others!
What an inspiration!!!
As someone who doesn’t consider myself artistic, this show really inspires me to tap into my inner artist and express myself thru my business in more ways! Loved hearing Donna Moritz…one of my favorite people to learn visual marketing from! Great show Antrese!
Educational & insightful
I've listened to about 20 episodes so far, and wanted to thank you for what you are doing Antrese. Your great questions and conversational style bring out amazingly reflective and insightful responses from your guests. I'm really looking forward to listening to the rest of your podcasts.
Fun - and educational!
Thanks for doing these. Love the interviews.
Love love love!
Antrese is the perfect mentor to have with you in the studio. Here I am set up with 6 WIPs on easels, house-sitting while my daughter is on holiday, with 3 days of just myself & painting to focus on - bliss. Love my 3 grandsons but totally loving this as a quiet space for a change. What shall I do first? Will I finish any of them? Can I mix that colour again? How will I get them back home if they are all wet with fresh oil paint? I need some help to focus and who better than the Savvy Painter podcast. How to Create Clarity ... oh boy how spot on was this! Just like all of her podcasts Antrese hits the nail right on the head - trust yourself and take your next best step! I've listened to it over and over to get those messages deep in my psyche and it's working! Thank you so much Antrese for your coaching skills that dispel the myths that deny us the pleasure of enjoying what we do. We can get on with believing in ourselves rather than waiting for outside confirmation. love Love LOVE this podcast!
A must listen for artists!
This is a great resource for artists and all the creative minds out there. The stories of the artists themselves on the show are inspiring for everyone! Highly recommended!
A must for any artist!!
A fantastic podcast, I have listened to many over and over again. A must for any artist!!
Antrese helps with my windshield time fly by with inspirational guests. Finally an art podcast that isn't a lecture series. Keep up the good work!
I've been listening to Antrese Wood's Savvy Painter Podcast during my commutes and I love them! She is an excellent interviewer who seems to know exactly what I would ask and she follows through on all the intriguing details that come up. I love the people she is finding to interview and have learned so much from each podcast- both on the business side of being an artist, and also on the process and mental sides. How validating to find out that my struggles are so similar to those of artists I really admire and respect!
Great show for artists!
What a cool concept for a podcast. Makes me really wish I had better art skills. Keep up the great work!
Artists on Art
Thank you Antrese for your excellent interview with Charlie Hunter. It was very informative and fun to hear about how he became a painter. I like your style of interviewing and think it's a great podcast.
A much needed resource for working artists!
Antrese Wood is an artist I admire greatly. With her at the helm and hosting this conversation, these podcast interviews will not only be informative, interesting and authentic, I know they will be fun too. I cannot wit to tune in and pick up some insights on how other artists work and how they get their artwork out there, seen and SOLD. This is certain to be a much needed resource for working artists and I'm looking forward to becoming a regular listener. Thanks, Antrese!
Great show & interesting host!
Very NPR feel; and that's a great thing!
Perfect Artist Podcast
From Tips to plan and organize (Episode 15)...so you get more time for painting to lots of conversations with amazing Artist! Even for this hobby oil painter this show rocks!
The world of art will be different because of this show
I say this because she is giving artists the critical tools necessary to make your passion into a reality and into a viable career. This is a major road block or artists and Antrese unveils powerful secrets and knowledge to make your dream into a successful business.
I truly love all your interviews
Antrese Wood, I truly love all your interviews but I wanted to pay a special compliment on this one with Karen. Really connected with so many things she said - she is putting words around concepts that I've just recently begun to consider. Wonderful! I also love how you are able to 'go there' with everyone you interview and this podcast is another inspirational one! Thank you!
What a wonderful idea! I love to hear stories from other artists. Your story is amazing, Antrese, as is your work. You go girl! I look forward to hearing more podcasts.
I'm addicted to these podcasts and now that I've went through the whole archive, I eagerly watch for each new one. Antrese does a fabulous job of being fully present for each interview and letting the artist's response guide her questioning. She asks thoughtful, interesting questions that illuminate the artist's thinking and process. I enjoy the range of subjects she covers from art practice to business. I've listened to other podcasts on the arts, but this is by far my favorite! Thank you, Antrese!
As a painter herself, Antrese knows what it’s like to be an artist. She’s intimately familiar with the highs and lows of creating, marketing, and selling art. She has walked the tightrope of creating authentic, meaningful work and making a living as an artist.
Antrese inspires tens of thousands of artists every month with her top ranked podcast, and works directly with members of her Growth Studio membership program to guide them past creative doubts and overwhelm, and gives them concrete tips to build the skills they need to create their best work.
