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.

Fabulous, helpful & encouraging

Hello! I only found the podcast yesterday and listening to Antrese talk while I painted was really wonderful. I felt like I’d found a friend who was prepared to explain and talk through so much of the stuff that’s been rattling around in my head. Awesome! Thank you

A thought provoking podcast

This is by far the most helpful, creative, and thought provoking podcast I’ve ever come across. Every episode gives me new ways to look at my art practice, and life in general. Antrese shares in a way that feels entirely genuine and personal. The topics feel fresh, and even when treading familiar paths, she always brings a new twist or insight. My only challenge when listening to her podcast is that I have a hard time paying attention. Often she will say something that causes my mind to get all excited and to race off in response. Thank goodness for “rewind”! And thank you Antrese for your generosity in creating and sharing this podcast.

I stumbled on these...

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, you won't be sorry!

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.

I've been listening to one episode right after another since I found this podcast.

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!

Antrese does wonderful job bringing us great guests with fabulous insight

I'm not even an artist and I listen to this show. The folks Antrese has on are wise in business and life, which applies to artists and non-artists alike. I've heard things I've never heard on any go my business podcasts. Great stuff!

Easy Listening on a Complicated Subject

Just discovered this via an artist I follow on Instagram who was interviewed: William Wray. Have now listened to at least six or seven episodes and I love the consistently audio quality (a problem with other show on this topic) and the structure of the show which makes it very easy to listen to and the insightful questions that reveal each artist in unique ways.

Inspiring!

So thankful to have seen artist Carol Marine mention this series on 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 of 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 info from her guests.

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!

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.”

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.

It’s as if she peeked into my soul!

“Artist are awe hunters”. This episode truly opened my eyes to how I view my experiences as ordinary. And somehow neglect to include them in my art. As a mother who has to keep it together, I find myself scattered when it comes to my art. This reminded me to loosen up and remain centered. Thank you!

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 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.

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

A HUGE help to me!

I love listening to this show. It’s one of the few that, if my podcast player keeps giving me more episodes of it in a row, I don’t mind a bit. It is exactly what I need to learn to believe in my own creativity.

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.

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.

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.
