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.

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!

Marvelous Alvaro Castagnet Interview

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

So motivating!

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!

I truly love all your interviews

Antrese Wood, I truly love all your interviews but I wanted to pay a special compliment on this one with Karen. Really connected with so many things she said - she is putting words around concepts that I've just recently begun to consider. Wonderful! I also love how you are able to 'go there' with everyone you interview and this podcast is another inspirational one! Thank you!

Thank you!

I don't know how I managed before discovering this podcast. Listening to Antrese interview artists about philosophy, struggle, joy, technique, marketing, what have you, has been an absorbing and companionable joy as I paint alone in my studio. I'm pretty sure I've made some better paintings because of this podcast! Thank you Antrese.

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!

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!

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!

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!

Savvy Painter

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.

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.

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!

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.

Savvy Painter

What a treasure trove! I've been recommending this to all of my friends in the arts, especially those of us who paint. Not only do I love your name, "Antrese," I deeply respect your "back story" and vision. There is much to learn and like here, not the least of which is the importance of determination, perseverance, and courage. Congratulations!

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.

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.

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.
