Keep up the good work - it's making my world a more thoughtful place!
Great conversations! The wonderful conversations with artist of all sorts are inspiring and motivating. Keep up the good work - it's making my world a more thoughtful place!
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.
Enjoyable and informative!
I'm so glad I found your podcast. Although I don't know how you have managed to produce so many quality interviews. I'm glad there is a backlog I haven't heard yet so I don't have to wait. I'm sure I'll catch up soon thought, so keep on doing them! I like your style of interviewing, it's obvious you research your guests and I often find that you ask the very question that comes to my mind when I'm listening. Thank you for your hard work and for creating this valuable resource.
Marvelous Alvaro Castagnet Interview
Alvaro was a delight to listen to and he was very generous with Antrese in the variety of topics discussed, natural dialogue sounds liked old friends talking at ease, conversation was most interesting and Antrese asked all the right questions.
While this podcast covers the essentials of art and business, but it also is full of inspirational stories and experiences! Her guests are incredible and Antrese asks great questions!

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!
You gotta get paid!
This is an awesome podcast with great interviews! Thanks for sharing!
I am not exaggerating, I've been listening to this podcast every spare minute since I found it. I wait impatiently for a new episode each week. Captivating, essential information for painters. Thank you Antrese Wood.
Errol Gerson was amazing!
Omg. Your podcast with Errol Gerson was amazing. I've never heard of him but I now believe he is one of the most wonderful human beings in the world! I'm not religious, but that guy is my new God. What a perfect soul. Great job...love the podcast.
I LOVE THIS PODCAST
I like to make art. I've been listening to this show non stop since I discovered it. I love to paint to it and I feel like I'm learning so much about life when I listen. THANK YOU Antrese for making this!!!!!
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!
Thanks Antrese Wood -- this is my favorite podcast so far.
Informative and Entertaining!
The Savvy Painter podcast are so informative. I feel incredibly lucky to have found this show. This is real information from and for real people who are looking to build a real art business. The content is so relevant, the artist interviews are enlightening, and the advice is ready to use. Thank you so much, Savvy Painter! I look forward to every episode.
Love Ray Turner Episode 17
Hi. I’m Ziggy Oleary I’m a painter in Las Vegas. I love your podcast, especially #17 with Ray Turner. He was insanely honest and open with his feelings. What an interesting character. I’m so glad you let him just ramble even when his thoughts started going dark, most interviewers would have changed the subject to keep it all light, thank you for letting him just go. It was refreshing to hear someone be real.
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!
Awesome and interesting
Wow…what an amazing show. The host is really knowledgeable and the guest are great. It’s really helpful for artists. SUBSCRIBE!
I'm addicted to these 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!
Artistic Stories with a Relatable Approach!
Antrese shares valuable and relatable content any artist would enjoy…a wonderful resource!
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.
Much needed for artists!
Antrese Wood is doing big things for artists. Love the show!
LOVE your podcasts

Savvy Painter, Savvy Podcast
Antrese has an amazing story and brings conversations that are lively and energetic. Great work. Keep it up!
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!
Just found your show - love it!
Hi! It's a great thing that you're doing, and very helpful for all us artist. I listened to 5 shows today while I was painting. Love it!
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!
