More More More of THIS!!!

Just listened to Kathleen Dunphy interview and was absolutely riveted to every world. Just invaluable to me. I took away so many great tips on how to persevere, how to follow what you WANT. Antrese moves the conversation through in a natural way. You are sitting there feeling so lucky to be hearing all of this great advice. It's all the better knowing Antrese and respecting her work and journey...she can relate to the wonderful people she is interviewing and so that lends a lot to it. These are life and soul saving talks that are keeping me walking that line with my head high. I've listened to a lot of these kinds of things, but I'm a huge fab already...heard two and on to the rest and so happy to know there will be more!!!

Great and professional work!

Great podcast to get viewers motivated about art. I am not an artist myself but Antrese Wood makes it easy to listen to and very interesting.

Great show in a Niche with a big need

The artist seems to be an area where it's often difficult to make a living. This podcast serves this community in a strongly meaningful way. The business of art is also a great example of making a living in the unique niche in a very self fulfilling and acceptable way.

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.

Not just for painters

I am a visual artist but not a painter. In fact, at first I hesitated to listen to it thinking it would be only about painting. What I found though is that title of the show is a bit of a misnomer because it's not really about painting at all. It is really about the reasons we make are and what it means to be a professional artist. I know that Antrese is a painter but I think that she could easily interview artists from other mediums and be completely at home because for the most part the goals and questions are the same regardless of what you make. This is totally worth a listen and a re-listen.

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!

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!

Great Show for the Art Industry

As a former Art student….I wish I had this show growing up to help inspire and teach me how to create a business in the Art Industry. Now so many artists will benefit from this show.

Immensely helpful and informative

So many of use who make/do art...do it alone. This is a great chance to hear from others about their failures and successes that have allowed them to grow and prosper. Some of the interviews answer important questions that I didn't even know I wanted to ask. Thank you for the variety of people you interview. And thank you for the follow-up info regarding the artists mentioned. I am a better artist because of this podcast.

Really enjoyable and informative

The podcast is a wonderful resource for artists (and wanna be artists) to learn more about other people's process, live and techniques. Antrese is an adapt, natural interviewer and the conversations she has with the guest artists are always insightful and informative. Thank you for this, a great idea you've wonderfully brought to life!

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 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.

Love love love!

Antrese is the perfect mentor to have with you in the studio. Here I am set up with 6 WIPs on easels, house-sitting while my daughter is on holiday, with 3 days of just myself & painting to focus on - bliss. Love my 3 grandsons but totally loving this as a quiet space for a change. What shall I do first? Will I finish any of them? Can I mix that colour again? How will I get them back home if they are all wet with fresh oil paint? I need some help to focus and who better than the Savvy Painter podcast. How to Create Clarity ... oh boy how spot on was this! Just like all of her podcasts Antrese hits the nail right on the head - trust yourself and take your next best step! I've listened to it over and over to get those messages deep in my psyche and it's working! Thank you so much Antrese for your coaching skills that dispel the myths that deny us the pleasure of enjoying what we do. We can get on with believing in ourselves rather than waiting for outside confirmation. love Love LOVE this podcast!

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.

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

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!

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!

Best use of time

I feel like I am painting with friends when I paint with this podcast. Being an artist can be a lonely business. But, now that I have Antrese, she introduces me to a new person each week! Thanks Antrese!

Amazing resource

The breadth of interviews is outstanding. I have learned so much from everyone, from the art aspect (like Camille’s) to the business aspect (such as Cory Huff’s). Thank you so much Antrese for spearheading this effort!

I LOVE THIS PODCAST

I like to make art. I've been listening to this show non stop since I discovered it. I love to paint to it and I feel like I'm learning so much about life when I listen. THANK YOU Antrese for making this!!!!!
