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!

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!

Great niche

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!

A thought provoking podcast

This is by far the most helpful, creative, and thought provoking podcast I’ve ever come across. Every episode gives me new ways to look at my art practice, and life in general. Antrese shares in a way that feels entirely genuine and personal. The topics feel fresh, and even when treading familiar paths, she always brings a new twist or insight. My only challenge when listening to her podcast is that I have a hard time paying attention. Often she will say something that causes my mind to get all excited and to race off in response. Thank goodness for “rewind”! And thank you Antrese for your generosity in creating and sharing this podcast.

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 show

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!

Top notch artist interviews

This is my favorite artist podcast! Antrese will introduce you to quality, committed artists and you'll get to live vicariously through her interviews. Her guests are people who I wish I could invite over for dinner or visit at their studios. I learn something new every time and it's always fun. Thank you Antrese for sharing yourself and your interviews with us.

Calm and Valuable

Savvy Painter in an amazing concept, how to make a business out of your art. I'm wondering this myself so I will definitely be checking out more. The John Hull episode's pretty beautiful and heartfelt. Thanks Antrese, keep it up!

Inspiring!

So thankful to have see artist Carol Marine mention this series in her blog, and I'm thrilled I took time to check it out. Topics and the interviewees are diverse but very relevant to working artists. Creating art can be a solitary discipline, and listening to the podcasts is a wonderful way to get out fo your little bubble and see how the real world works and how other artists think and create. The other thing I really like is that the podcasts are not too long 🙂 Antrese is great at asking the right questions and pulling out the most important information from her guests.

I love listening to this show. It’s one of the few that, if my podcast player keeps giving me more episodes of it in a row, I don’t mind a bit. It is exactly what I need to learn to believe in my own creativity.

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!

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 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!

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!!

Marvelous Alvaro Castagnet Interview

Allvaro was a delight in listen to and he was very generous with Antrese in the variety of topics discussed, natural dialogue sounded like old friends talking at ease, conversation was most interesting and Antrese asked all the right questions.

More More More of THIS!!!

Just listened to Kathleen Dunphy interview and was absolutely riveted to every world. Just invaluable to me. I took away so many great tips on how to persevere, how to follow what you WANT. Antrese moves the conversation through in a natural way. You are sitting there feeling so lucky to be hearing all of this great advice. It's all the better knowing Antrese and respecting her work and journey...she can relate to the wonderful people she is interviewing and so that lends a lot to it. These are life and soul saving talks that are keeping me walking that line with my head high. I've listened to a lot of these kinds of things, but I'm a huge fab already...heard two and on to the rest and so happy to know there will be more!!!

Great interviewer!

It's so nice to have an artist podcast where the guests are given time and freedom to answer questions in depth. Always look forward to the new ones and I love the way Antrese interacts with the artist(s)!

Motivates me to keep pushing for better results

These artists are incredibly talented and insightful. On their recommendations, I have bought books, changed some supplies and tried all sorts of new things. They're making me think of my work in new ways. Antrese is excellent at pulling the good stuff out go these guys. Amazing job!

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.

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.
