Eps 26: Artist Joanne Greenbaum- Making the Work, Making a Living, and a Deep Knowledge of Painting

In this episode, I talk to artist Joanne Greenbaum about education, politics of art language, the deep internal intelligence in painting, the power of introversion, mark-making, color and her exploration of materials.

Carve Out Time For Art-Motherhood, Making Time & Embracing Efficiency

I am so excited to welcome Marissa Huber and Heather Kirtland to the show! Marissa and Heather are both artists and they also created the amazing site Carve Out Time For Art. The mission of COTFA is to empower people to stop dreaming and start doing! From 2015-2016 they posted an artist/mother interview a week and they are now releasing their book, The Motherhood of Art Book in April! This is such an amazing resource and I wish I would have had this when I had my first child. Marissa and Heather are shining a light on a topic that affects so many women in the arts. Through their site and book, they are creating conversations that are allowing people to live their best life and create community. “Women and new mothers are constantly encountering the message that they can never do anything for themselves once they have children. This conversational book is like brunch with girlfriends, offering you friendly advice, community encouragement, and tips on carving time out for creative endeavors. Meet women who not only defied the "no more time to be an artist" stereotype, but found motherhood gave them focus, confidence, and efficiency in their art and creative endeavors.”   This is a majorly EMPOWERING episode for anyone rejecting negative societal expectations placed on them from "you can't be an artist and have kids", "you have to give up everything for your kids" to "in be an artist you must be ____". None of these statements support artists rather they pass judgment and leave a narrow window for what an artist can be.   In this episode, we cover a ton of great info including: -not feeling guilty for making time -organizing time -parenthood leading to becoming a more efficient creator -our stories on how to adapt to a new schedule -how we made time for art   RESOURCES: I Like Your Work Podcast Studio Planner Instagram Submit Work Money Bootcamp- Use code ILIKEYOURWORK20 for $20 off Bridgette Mayer Art MBACarve Out Time For Art Website Artist Mother Interviews Pre-Order the Book COTFA on Instagram 20 on the Rise Interview Interview in Create Magazine COFTA Newsletter

Eps 20: Artist Chelsea Gibson

In this episode the painter Chelsea Gibson and I discuss her musical background, building a home and studio from the ground up and dealing with criticism. Chelsea Gibson paints portraits of home. Her paintings investigate what it means to call a place “home” and how the lives lived there are interdependent on the spaces within. She paints about the decision to live in such a rural community, and what those choices look like for her friends and models. She is interested in the dichotomy between highly representational and abstract within each work. By investigating what it might feel like to live in someone else’s shoes, Gibson learns from her models, and by painting them she learns more about herself.   Gibson has a BFA in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design (2006), and an MFA in Painting from Boston University (2010). At RISD, Gibson helped create the first Drawing Marathon, based on her experience at the New York Studio School in 1999 and 2000. Also a cellist, Gibson attended New England Conservatory from 2001-2003. She is currently a full-time painter in Gilbertsville, NY. She and her husband built their home and studio in a former cow barn, surrounded by 160 acres of woodland.   Chelsea Gibson Website Lyons Weir Gallery Gates of the West

Eps 36: Artist Allison Reimus-Questioning the Decorative, Feminism & Choice

Allison Reimus's work explores the relationship between decoration and function and similarly, how painting operates as both an object and an idea. Simple compositions depicting singular moments and objects, within a shallow pictorial space, allow Reimus to freely explore her interests in formalism, geometry and abstraction. Thoughtful investigations regarding tactility and surface often lead to experiments with media closely associated with domesticity and the feminine--  glitter, gold leaf, flocking fibers, textiles and spray paint.  Reimus's work has been featured in numerous exhibitions and publications throughout the United States. Recent solo and two-person exhibitions include Tiger Strikes Asteroid (Chicago, IL), Knox College (Galesburg, IL), and The Mission (Chicago, IL). Recent group exhibitions include Left Field Gallery (Los Osos, CA), Kirk Hopper Fine Art (Dallas, TX), Platform Gallery (Baltimore, MD) and No Place Gallery (Columbus, OH). Her work has been included in ArtMaze Mag, Maake Magazine and New American Paintings (#88, #113, #125), where she was highlighted as both an "Editor's Selection" and a "Noteworthy Artist." Reviews include The Boston Globe, The Washington Post and NPR. Upcoming exhibitions include Left Field Gallery (Los Osos, CA) and Massey Klein Gallery (New York, NY).   In this episode, Allison and I dive into her background, and how growing up in Michigan shaped who she is as a driven artist. We discuss her process within her work and how we were both told not to have children in order to have a career in the arts. This conversation sheds light on how women are told to live their life which we are currently seeing in politics with the challenge to Roe vs Wade. Predominantly white men are telling women what to do with their bodies.
