Deep into the business of art

Antrese brings deep insights about art and the business of selling it from experience and translates that for the rest of us. Her ability to go beyond the obstacles and balance a plan with inspiration comes across.

Make me feel connected to the greater world of art

I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate and enjoy your Savvy Painter podcasts. They're so inspiring and make me feel somewhat connected to the greater world of art. I've learned so much by listening to them, the artist interviews, especially, are so entertaining and informative. Hearing their stories give me the courage to keep going.

If you are an artist, a painter specifically, you owe it to yourself to listen to The Savvy Painter. You can find it on iTunes. And, for the record, I've never met or spoken to Antrese Wood until this moment. I just can't say enough good things about her show and I want her to enjoy the success she deserves for putting together such a great resource for the rest of us. Check it out. You won't be disappointed. And, if you like it, tell your friends!

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!

Who listens to podcasts to get them through long commutes in the car?

The Savvy Painter Podcast is a great source of information and inspiration. Use it to expand your knowledge bank of contemporary artists (backstories/techniques), well-known art manufacturers such as Gamblin, Artist Colors, Gamblin Artists Colors, Rosemary & Co. Artists Brushes, etc. about their products, and marketing solutions

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

I love the Savvy Painter!

I feel SO good and inspired after listening to the interviews on the savvypainter.com. I am a painter and often feel really alone navigating the many challenges of being a full-time artist and running my own business. Most people can't relate and or don't take me seriously. It is so wonderful listening to a podcast by a painter for painters. I feel so connected listening to the interviewer with contemporary artists, who open up and describe their struggles and challenges, as well as, where they have found success. The business of art is discussed, as is education, tips, and techniques, ups and downs, the meaning of art, why we create, inspiration...Everything. Wherever you are at in your career, there is something of value and interest to be heard on the Savvy Painter. To my fellow painters, I can't recommend this enough. To everyone else, the show is a glimpse into the lives of artists and is very worthy of your time.

Fantastic Opportunity!

I am a new and very enthusiastic fan of Savvy Painter, I experience so much learning and inspiration from the interviews that Antrese does with an abundance of talented, interesting artists. I love her conversational style and openness. I am engaged and delighted to have this amazing opportunity that she has created with this podcast. Thank you Antrese! My world of painting has become widely expanded and energized through listening to your podcast.

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.
