Savvy Painter is where you will find your artist community, artist interviews and painting workshops
What a wonderful interviewer you are. Your voice is so good and smooth. You have a presence that has a great magnetism. I like the uncut version. You are really good. I am planning on listening to more of your interviews.
LOVE your podcasts
Thank you thank you thank you! LOVE your podcasts.
Love this podcast! Highly recommend it!
A fantastic podcast, I have listened to many over and over again. A must for any artist!
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!
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 for artists!
What a cool concept for a podcast. Makes me really wish I had better art skills. Keep up the great work!
I'm addicted !
Truly thoughtful questions and insightful discussions. I am so excited about this podcast. Antrese does such a phenomenal job interviewing and has the best guests! I only recently started painting and am learning so much! Cannot wait for more!
A very important resource for fine art painters
Fantastic podcast. I've been searching for a long time for a podcast that talked about living ones life as a painter and the concerns that come along with making a living on one's Art. Thank you very much for spending the time and resources to produce this great show.
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.
Savvy Painter is the best podcast for artists
Hands-down, this is the best podcast for artists. The guests are successful artists with a lot to say. Better yet, it's obvious that Antrese has studied their work and career before she starts the interview. This enables her to interact with them in a thoughtful, articulate, and meaningful way. This podcast will make you think about how and why you make art, and about how you want to promote your art career.
Great Podcast for All
Antrese’s passion shines through. Artists sharing their stories actually provide great principles for all entrepreneurs and business owners. Hear about marketing, promoting, email lists, and more talented and successful people.
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!
Wide-ranging info about art world, and artists
I have listened to each podcast twice, I always loo forward to hearing artists talk about everything from their process, to their funding, to light, color, materials....everything.
Savvy Painter, Savvy Podcast
Antrese has an amazing story and brings conversations that are lively and energetic. Great work. Keep it up!
Terrific and informative on the subject matter
This podcast does a terrific job interviewing some of the most interesting contemporary painters around. Any painter can find interesting discussions here from working artist about their various methods and their thinking about the art business and the making of art. Good background information and technical information on working methods is always included and artists often mention surprising insights on their personal development. Antrese is a fun, engaging and interested host and she lets the artists tell their own stories with little prompting. Some aspects of painting discussed might feel a bit obscure to a casual listener, but in-depth interview material is actually the best part of the show, since it is rarely presented in print or other formats. Absolutely recommended for any artist or painter at any level from rank beginner to working professional.
I've been listening to Antrese Wood's Savvy Painter Podcast during my commutes and I love them! She is an excellent interviewer who seems to know exactly what I would ask and she follows through on all the intriguing details that come up. I love the people she is finding to interview and have learned so much from each podcast- both on the business side of being an artist, and also on the process and mental sides. How validating to find out that my struggles are so similar to those of artists I really admire and respect!
Very helpful and engaging. Great resource!
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!
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.
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.
Genuine...extraordinary person and an amazing interviewer
Antrese is an extraordinary person and an amazing interviewer. She is actually present throughout the entire interview, not just reading questions and waiting for an opening in the conversation so that she can say something. She is very engaged and engaging and her own paintings are beautiful. She asks the questions that I, as an artist would ask the interviewee myself but in a truly curious and very conversational way. She shares some of herself but not too much, it is like listening to a conversation between two extremely interesting and close friends. I recommend this podcast often to friends and fellow artists. Go Antrese!
Great podcast with artist interviews and insights. I've enjoyed every episode and look forward to the next.
A much needed resource for working artists!
Antrese Wood is an artist I admire greatly. With her at the helm and hosting this conversation, these podcast interviews will not only be informative, interesting and authentic, I know they will be fun too. I cannot wit to tune in and pick up some insights on how other artists work and how they get their artwork out there, seen and SOLD. This is certain to be a much needed resource for working artists and I'm looking forward to becoming a regular listener. Thanks, Antrese!
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!
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 🙂
This is the best artist interview podcast I have found, I highly recommend it to my fellow artist friends!
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!!!
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!
Marvelous Alvaro Castagnet Interview
