Savvy Painter is where you will find your artist community, artist interviews and painting workshops
Antrese and her interviews have me excited to persevere through my own hang ups with my craft.
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)!
Where the easel and life meet
Love this podcast. A terrific mix and yet balanced with great takeaways. Keep it coming!
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.
Thank you, Antrese!
Thanks Antrese Wood -- this is my favorite podcast so far.
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!
Such a cool concept
What a great show! It’s such a needed topic to help artists effectively make money with their art. Very cool!
What an inspiration!!!
As someone who doesn’t consider myself artistic, this show really inspires me to tap into my inner artist and express myself thru my business in more ways! Loved hearing Donna Moritz…one of my favorite people to learn visual marketing from! Great show Antrese!
Perfect Artist Podcast
From tips to plan and organize (Episode 15)...so you get more time for painting to lots of conversations with amazing Artists! Even for this hobby oil painter this show rocks!
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!!
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.
A really valuable podcast for anybody who wants to be a full-time artist.
Savvy Painter was the best find on the web. I find it very very interesting and fun to listen to the interviews. Antrese is a very talented interviewer and I have grown to look forward to each new show. I also enjoy listening to past shows over and over again.
Great podcast for lonely painters
Only discovered this podcast recently - I listen to it every time I come into the studio. Its great. I love how Antrese allows the conversation to become philosophical. That is when it becomes most helpful to me. Fave interviews so far are Tom Wudl and Alvaro Castagnet. Thanks for doing these podcasts Antrese and please don't stop.
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.
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.
WOW…what a great podcast. This podcast is really helpful for artists and aspiring artists. Keep up the good work Antrese.
Thank you soo much for the heart and passion...
Thank you soo much for the heart and passion you have put into Savvy Painter! I am constantly inspired and challenged by you and your guest. Thank you for making this happen and for pulling our worlds together. I am a Senior CG artist at The Basement in Indianapolis with almost thirteen years in the field. My foundation and true love in fine art, Pen and Ink, and oil painting. My strength is drawing but my goal is impressionism oil painting.
Here are my top two struggles. With impressionism with oils...is "when to stop." I tend to push the painting past the moment when I should stop...losing the brush strokes, color, and original heart of the painting. My second struggle is finding time as s a husband, father of two, and full time employee. I can't put into words how blessed I am but I struggle while finding time to put paint to the canvas and learning more. Drawing is different...I draw all the time while working, while at lunch.
Thank you again for your heart and passion you put into Savvy Painter. Continue doing what you do and blessing others!
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.
An all-around great resource for artists who are trying to step up their game. Thanks for putting this info out there and destroying the myth of “starving artist.”
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 fantastic podcast, I have listened to many over and over again. A must for any artist!
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. If you are an artist of any medium this is joy to listen to and learn from. - Wyatt, creativehabitspodcast.com
Just the inspiration I need when I am in the studio.
The Podcast that put the focus back on my lack of...look squirrel!
I am so thankful to have discovered the Savvy Painter podcast with Antrese Wood. I was deep into working on a commission and found that I felt my mind was aching for stimulation. This particulate project (wood burning) I was working on bordered more craft than art, but I had to focus and it was painful. THE SAVVY PAINTER PODCAST SAVED MY LIFE! After being privileged to work while listening to TEN or more episodes in a row over two days, I would consider myself an expert on everything savvy. I love the way the show is formatted and Antrese is a gifted listener. She has a tremendous skill for asking questions, keeping conversation light and managing content of a wide variety from several dynamic artists. I feel like I was getting so much done as I burned wood sitting on my yoga ball. I LIVED! I feel great. Thanks, Antrese! I feel like my world has opened up. I'm encouraged and inspired.
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!
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.
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!"
Great show & interesting host!
Very NPR feel; and that's a great thing!
These are AMAZING!
I recently discovered this podcast...WOW, so inspiring and fun to listen to! I really appreciated that variety of topics discussed, and it's all done in an approachable, fun-spirited way. I'll definitely keep listening!! Thanks so much!
