Savvy Painter is where you will find your artist community, artist interviews and painting workshops
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.
Excellent show for creatives
So excited I found this show! As a creative, I've always wanted to monetize my creations - fabulous tips, strategies and inspiration
Perfect Artist Podcast
From Tips to plan and organize (Episode 15)...so you get more time for painting to lots of conversations with amazing Artist! Even for this hobby oil painter this show rocks!
Useful and practical information for artists and business
I like it that Antrese gets right into the content with good clear sound. This is a podcast with useful and practical information for artists and business. And, it's entertaining. Antrese has a nice rapport with the guests and the laughter makes the podcast enjoyable to listen! Thanks! Keep 'em coming Antrese 🙂
Listening while traveling across the US
My daughter, who is helping me set up a website for my new business, introduced me to your podcasts. We love them!! We are getting great ideas for our art businesses from your well thought out questions in the interviews you conduct. Thank you so much for creating this podcast!!!
Reminding me to paint with my soul..
I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your interview on the Savvy Painter. Thank you for reminding me to paint with my soul and not be so wrapped up in technique. The paintings that I have enjoyed painting the most are the ones that I get lost in and they paint themselves without thinking about technique.
The world of art will be different because of this show
I say this because she is giving artists the critical tools necessary to make your passion into a reality and into a viable career. This is a major road block or artists and Antrese unveils powerful secrets and knowledge to make your dream into a successful business.
Antrese is here to make the sticky parts not just easier, but still creative (!) - Love Antrese's perspective!
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 and her interviews have me excited to persevere through my own hang ups with my craft.
Educational & insightful
I've listened to about 20 episodes so far, and wanted to thank you for what you are doing Antrese. Your great questions and conversational style bring out amazingly reflective and insightful responses from your guests. I'm really looking forward to listening to the rest of your podcasts.
Thank you, Antrese!
Thanks Antrese Wood -- this is my favorite podcast so far.
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.
These are AMAZING!
I recently discovered this podcast...WOW, so inspiring and fun to listen to! I really appreciate the variety of topics discussed, and it's all done in and approachable, fun-spirited way. I'll definitely keep listening!! Thanks so much!
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, listen in, you won't be sorry!
Absolutely excited for this show!!
Antrese is the perfect host for this topic. She sheds light on a topic that is so important for artists and creators alike. It was great listening to the first episode and I can't wait for more to come out. Great Job Antrese!
Deeper than it looks!
It took me a while to check this podcast out, because of the title of the show I was expecting mostly marketing tips & that sort of thing. I was afraid it might be a bit glib & superficial...or worse, lessons in how to sell out. I was very happily surprised that Antrese's conversation with artists go far deeper, with discussions not only about business matters & technique, but artistic philosophies & intensely personal experiences relating to the making of art. I do appreciate the helpful marketing stuff (we all need, like it or not), but even more the insights into individual artists' varied approaches to their work & careers. I've also discovered artists here that I might never have encountered otherwise. Thank you, Antrese!
What a wonderful idea! I love to hear stories from other artists. Your story is amazing, Antrese, as is your work. You go girl! I look forward to hearing more podcasts.
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!
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.
I continue to enjoy this podcast and the other offerings by Antrese, such as her Facebook artist page. She is a wonderful interviewer and person, which shines through her interviews!
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!
Great show. Inspirational. Encouraging. Informative. Wonderful to listen to while painting!! Thanks a zillion!
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!
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!
Just the inspiration I need when I am in the studio.
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.
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!
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!
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!
