Helpful and supportive!
Antrese asks the questions that provides artists a way to talk about their successes, failures and motivations. It is helpful to identify on the emotional level with what we all feel. Antrese always brings her positive energy into energy into each interview. I'm looking forward to every edition.

Wide-ranging info about art world, and artists
I have listened to each podcast twice. I always look forward to hearing artists talk about everything from their process, to their funding, to light, color materials...everything.
Great Show for the Art Industry
As a former Art student….I wish I had this show growing up to help inspire and teach me how to create a business in the Art Industry. Now so many artists will benefit from this show.
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.
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!
Genuine...extraordinary person and an amazing interviewer
Antrese is an extraordinary person and an amazing interviewer. She is actually present throughout the entire interview, not just reading questions and waiting for an opening in the conversation so that she can say something. She is very engaged and engaging and her own paintings are beautiful. She asks the questions that I, as an artist would ask the interviewee myself but in a truly curious and very conversational way. She shares some of herself but not too much, it is like listening to a conversation between two extremely interesting and close friends. I recommend this podcast often to friends and fellow artists. Go Antrese!
I'm addicted !
Truly thoughtful questions and insightful discussions. I am so excited about this podcast. Antrese does such a phenomenal job interviewing and has the best guests! I only recently started painting and am learning so much! Cannot wait for more!
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.
Fun - and educational!
Thanks for doing these. Love the interviews.
Exactly what I needed!
This is a great podcast! I have been looking for something like this for many years. Every so often I search for new podcasts to add to my addiction. (I like to multi-task). Antrese is very good at interviewing the perfect array of people that she has collected to help and give inspiration to us. I am grateful to have found the Savvy Painter at the time in my career when I can really use her advice. My head is spinning as I have binged listened over the last week. I am ready to really make a go at an art career and I feel that the advice I have gotten from listening so far will save me from making some time consuming mistakes. The artists interviewed are from a variety of fields. I am learning a little something from every one of them! Thank you, Antrese!
Best Art Podcast
As a collector of podcasts this is the best one I have found for art business. Great guests and a comfortable host who sounds like she had been interviewing people for years. Inspiring and informative.
Great show & interesting host!
Very NPR feel; and that's a great thing!
Just the inspiration I need when I am in the studio.
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!
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!

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.
Intelligent informative and fun
Listening to Antrese's podcast is a highlight of my day! It is like being in an intelligent, informative and fun conversation every day. I listen to the episodes over and over because as I progress in my art, I hear different things. A must have for artists of all kinds. Her website is full of fabulous information!
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.
Best use of time
I feel like I am painting with friends when I paint with this podcast. Being an artist can be a lonely business. But, now that I have Antrese, she introduces me to a new person each week! Thanks Antrese!
Informative and entertaining!
Love this show, as an artist, I appreciate a focus show on the arts. Keep going!
A Life Changer
Wow! I listen to your podcasts while I paint. I love the whole package. The content is so rich, nearly every podcast has me rushing over to my desk to write down a pearl that either affirms something I was feeling in the back of my mind, or sparks a new direction of thought. Oh, I can't tell you how much I appreciate these. You and your guests are contributing something life changing. Thank you!
Thank you, Antrese!
Thanks Antrese Wood -- this is my favorite podcast so far.
A must for any artist!!
A fantastic podcast, I have listened to many over and over again. A must for any artist!!
A really valuable podcast for anybody who wants to be a full-time artist.
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!
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.
