Savvy Painter is where you will find your artist community, artist interviews and painting workshops
How to make art a business...so needed in the creative arts.
Great Podcast for Artists!!
I discovered this podcast maybe two weeks ago, and I've already binge-listened to every episode! Antrese is an excellent interviewer. She's very smart, insightful, kind and she's somehow able to relate on a meaningful level with every artist she interviews, and these are some drastically different personalities and points of view. I can't wait to find out who Antrese will interview next! She's gotten some amazing, impressive artists so far.
Absolutely excited for this show!!
Antrese is the perfect host for this topic. She sheds light on a topic that is so important for artists and creators alike. It was great listening to the first episode and I can't wait for more to come out. Great Job Antrese!
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!
Antrese is here to make the sticky parts not just easier, but still creative (!) - Love Antrese's perspective!
The business of art can detract from the process, which needs to be creative. Antrese is here to make the sticky parts not just easier, but still creative (!) - which is instrumental in helping you as an artist succeed in business. Go Antrese!
Ebullient interviews that are entertaining and informative
Interviewing and making it interesting is difficult. And that to a visual topic on an audio only medium and it's at expert level. Host Antrese Wood handles this so deftly that you can't even see the brush strokes. Even when a guest misinterprets a question and answers in a fractal way, she encourages and nourishes this surprise branch and delves deeper. Her website has the gallery and bibliography for every episode (which is oh so helpful to not only see the art being discussed but to learn about any other artists being referenced). Put a red dot on this podcast, I'm sold.
Insightful interviews that appeal to artists at any stage of their career
All of my friends are probably sick of hearing about Savvy Painter from me, but I can't stop recommending this show. Every episode is a goldmine, whether the interview is with another artist, a teacher, financial planner, blogger, collector, gallery owner...You name it and Antrese Wood has had a conversation with them. The show is informative AND entertaining. And she's not just rehashing what has already been covered in other interviews or writings. Antrese does her homework and doesn't let her interviewees off the hook and glib answers. The show makes me go back and re-listen to episodes (and take notes) to make sure I didn't miss anything. What a valuable resource!
Inspiring and entertaining
Wonderfully inspiring podcast featuring great artists, excellent advice, and fascinating stories. Thank you. Antrese, keep up the great work!
I stumbled on these, not sure how, but I'm so glad I did. So much information and ideas. By listening to all these other artists I've found that the struggles I'm going through are just part of the process. What a huge help and relief. Techniques, marketing, finding your own voice, the list goes on, listen in, you won't be sorry!
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 am 63, had no art education and a self taught weaver
I am 63, had no art education while in school and was a self taught weaver for 25 years. I always wanted to paint but my feelings of lack: training, no magical encounter with a mentor etc held me back until about 46! Working and raising children has made me practice somewhat inconsistent but more and more I am grounded in a passion for painting and learning everything I can. This podcast is an amazing gift. I can never catch up to people who grew up with parents who saw and nurtured their talent, or who went to art school and had mentors like Israel Hershberg. Nevertheless, I am so grateful or what I do have. THANK you for these lessons, stories and insights! I feel very nurtured and encouraged. You ask really good questions.
Thank you Antrese for the bringing such a variety of artists' perspectives. Wonderful to listen to and helpful for creative blocks and staying loose in practicing making art. I look forward to hearing many more!
Savvy Painter Rocks!
This is a great podcast and just what I needed to inspire me to build my platform and create a business out of my art. This is definitely going to be one of my favorite podcasts and a regular listen for me each week. Love Antrese’s conversations and great guests. Check it out!
LOVE your podcasts
Thank you thank you thank you! LOVE your podcasts.
Really enjoyable and informative
The podcast is a wonderful resource for artists (and wanna be artists) to learn more about other people's process, live and techniques. Antrese is an adapt, natural interviewer and the conversations she has with the guest artists are always insightful and informative. Thank you for this, a great idea you've wonderfully brought to life!
A must for any artist!!
A fantastic podcast, I have listened to many over and over again. A must for any artist!!
What a difference this has made in my life!
Antrese, if you read this, THANK YOU! You have helped me move mountains in regards to my own creative exploration. I started listening to this podcast my junior year of art school and have completely identified with so much of what your guests discuss. I am a huge supporter of and can't wait for the day I can thank you in person. I have approached my canvases and my own mentality towards my paintings in a new light because of this podcast. Much love!
Great Podcast for All
Antrese’s passion shines through. Artists sharing their stories actually provide great principles for all entrepreneurs and business owners. Hear about marketing, promoting, email lists, and more talented and successful people.
How did I work before Savvy Painter?
I have just come back from painting road trip up the PCH. From the moment I pulled out of the driveway until I pulled back in a week later, I listened to nothing but The Savvy Painter. I couldn't stop. Here is the inspiration you need for whatever artistic blocks you may have. Antrese is a wonderful interviewer. Her warmth, humor and her own personal knowledge of painting leads each and every guest artist to really open up about their personal process, their experiences with the business side of art, their pitfalls, hangups and anxieties. They know they are talking to someone who was been through it as well. Hearing such wonderful discussions - intelligent and thoughtful without ever being stuffy - was exactly the motivation I needed as I pulled into a spot to unload the car and dig into a canvas. I am so happy I found this podcast. And now that I'm home, it's time to dig into SavvyPainter.com. Thanks Antrese!
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!
Not just for painters
I am a visual artist but not a painter. In fact, at first I hesitated to listen to it thinking it would be only about painting. What I found though is that title of the show is a bit of a misnomer because it's not really about painting at all. It is really about the reasons we make are and what it means to be a professional artist. I know that Antrese is a painter but I think that she could easily interview artists from other mediums and be completely at home because for the most part the goals and questions are the same regardless of what you make. This is totally worth a listen and a re-listen.
A podcast for artists looking for a mentor
Antrese is a great interviewer of highly acclaimed artists and entrepreneurs who are willing to share their unguarded perspective on Art and all avenues it encompasses. Each episode has been a valuable reminder of how important it is as an artist to find other artists to talk to. She is having the conversations we all want to have and putting them out there for our benefit.
I stumbled on these...
I stumbled on these, not sure how, but I'm so glad I did! So much information and ideas. By listening to all these other artists I've found that the struggles I'm going through are just part of the process. What a huge help and relief. Techniques, marketing, finding your own voice, the list goes on, you won't be sorry!
No more roadblocks for Artists that long to have their work seen, except whatever is holding them back inside themselves. Antrese can help with that!
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.
This podcast should be in every artist's library!
Love This Podcast
This is another podcast I love to listen to while driving or working in the studio. I'm not sure how many times I've listened to Hollis Dunlap and Mark Trujillo. At least five or six times each. Keep up the good work.
Savvy Painter was the best find on the web. I find it very very interesting and fun to listen to the interviews. Antrese is a very talented interviewer and I have grown to look forward to each new show. I also enjoy listening to past shows over and over again.
The Podcast for Serious Artists!
The Savvy Painter Podcast is for serious creatives who pour their passion into all they do!
I don't know how I managed before discovering this podcast. Listening to Antrese interview artists about philosophy, struggle, joy, technique, marketing, what have you, has been an absorbing and companionable joy as I paint alone in my studio. I'm pretty sure I've made some better paintings because of this podcast! Thank you Antrese.
