A gift!

This podcast is a gift for artists. As a painter, I spend a lot of time alone in my studio. Listening to Antrese is like talking shop with the professionals any time I need inspiration. It's great to hear other artists going through similar challenges, sharing ideas, and discussing the subjects that would otherwise just be random thoughts in my head. Antrese unpacks these ideas and gives listeners a lot to chew on. I had the honor of meeting Antrese at her plein air workshop in March of 2015. She's a delight. A great listener and artist, passionate about painting, and cares about the art community. Her podcast brings this community closer. Thank you for this great service!

I've been listening to one episode right after another since I found this podcast. The interviews are authentic and compelling, the business and life tips useful and I also appreciate the back and forth rhythm she's developed between business and making art. Thank you Antrese - keep them coming!

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.

Thank You!

I've been devouring these in my studio over past few days while I work. What an awesome resource you've put together. A few of the artist I know personally, or have heard of them or their work, and others are completely new to me, thank you!

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.

Artists who share their pragmatic as well as visionary sides

Great questions. Artists who share their pragmatic as well as visionary sides. It's such a generous contribution to the sometimes-solitary world of an artist, and I'm soaking up all I can, learning more each episode. Thank you, Antrese, for such a wonderful asset that also brings gift after gift of "Yes! I needed to hear that!"

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.

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!

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.

FABULOUS! Jam packed with information, fun to listen to

I have been waiting for a podcast like this for such a long time and it is FABULOUS! Jam packed with information, fun to listen to. Antrese's voice is soothing, and the information is motivational. I listen to it while painting, and relisten while watching the dog because I know that I missed some information. The episode with "get it done" author Sam Bennett was really uplifting.

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.

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!

Artists on Art

Thank you Antrese for your excellent interview with Charlie Hunter. It was very informative and fun to hear about how he became a painter. I like your style of interviewing and think it's a great 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.
