Creative Living with Jamie (episode 266): Interview with Jeanne Oliver

What if good enough was perfect? What if you let yourself learn along the way? That's what artist and designer Jeanne Oliver did as she rediscovered her creative self and built an authentic creative business.

Jeanne is married to her dream maker, Kelly, and the mother to three funny and creative kiddos. She home schools her children even though she has tried to get out of it a few times. You can often find her hiking in her state of Colorado, making creative messes in her studio and finding an excuse to have another cup of coffee.

She speaks and teaches all around the country and sometimes she even gets to cross the pond. She was told that she needed to find that one thing but she doesn’t like listening to directions so she embraces many loves and that has given her a sweet mash up of family, art, teaching and design. Connecting with women and sharing that each of us has been creatively made is one of her passions.

Creative Living with Jamie (episode 260): Oto Kano

What if you left the shoulds behind in favour of what comes easily? That's exactly what Oto Kano did when she decided to become an artist.  Step by step, she moved from a life full of shoulds to one that worked with her bipolar instead of against it. In this episode, Oto shares how she made the transition from feeling guilty about doing what she loved to truly owning her gifts.

Oto Kano is a Japanese-British abstract painter and jewellery designer based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Her work focuses on encapsulating chance encounter of colours, and her bipolar. She paints the energy she sees in her mind during depression and mania. She moved away from her university lecturing job teaching computer science to becoming an artist at 36, in order to follow a creative life that worked with her bipolar, not against it.

A Little Note Regarding the Audio: Despite an unexpected power outage, I managed to get this week's episode to you. I record the extro on the fly so it sounds a little rougher than usual. I hope the message gets to you all the same!

Creative Living with Jamie (episode 266): Interview with Jeanne Oliver

What if good enough was perfect? What if you let yourself learn along the way? That's what artist and designer Jeanne Oliver did as she rediscovered her creative self and built an authentic creative business.

Jeanne is married to her dream maker, Kelly, and the mother to three funny and creative kiddos. She home schools her children even though she has tried to get out of it a few times. You can often find her hiking in her state of Colorado, making creative messes in her studio and finding an excuse to have another cup of coffee.

She speaks and teaches all around the country and sometimes she even gets to cross the pond. She was told that she needed to find that one thing but she doesn’t like listening to directions so she embraces many loves and that has given her a sweet mash up of family, art, teaching and design. Connecting with women and sharing that each of us has been creatively made is one of her passions.

Creative Living with Jamie (episode 264): Interview with Mario Andres Robinson

How do you pour love into a  painting? That's the impossible question I asked artist Mario A. Robinson after his portraits made me cry. I'm delighted he was willing to answer this question and many more on Creative Living with Jamie.

Mario studied at the prestigious Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Early in his development, he began looking to the great masters for inspiration and technical insight. An avid student of realism, he studied the elemental principles of painting by exploring the work and technique of Old Masters such as Rembrandt, Vermeer and Degas. However, it was the work of 19th and 20th century American artists that provided Robinson with the strongest stylistic foundation, helping him forge and define his own artistic sensibility.

Creative Living with Jamie (episode 261): Dar Hosta James What will it take for you to believe me when I tell you that you're creative? That's the question I start with this week before diving into a fascinating conversation with artist Dar Hosta James. Dar shares how she became an accidental artist and cobbled together a rich and diverse creative life.  Dar (Hosta) James is a painter of trees, a collage artist, a writer and illustrator of children's picture books, a creative project manager, a designer, a teacher of both children and adults, a speaker on creativity and education, a creativity life coach and a certified educator for GOLDEN Artist Colors.   Dar is the daughter of an artist with an exploration in visual arts that has been life long, self-motivated and self-taught.  After a brief stint as a high school teacher, she became a stay at home mom in rural Ohio where she discovered a love of collage while spending days at home with her two, young sons though, later, she would continue working in education through writing and art as a visiting author, an artist in residence and a national speaker on creativity in education. In 2003, after a move to central New Jersey, Dar started an independent publishing company, Brown Dog Books, which became a platform for her own illustrated children’s books. Of her life as an artist, she says, “Art has become a metaphor for my life… my life has become a metaphor for my art… in both areas, I try to look for what is working and how to make it all more fun. The two feed each other." Connect with Dar James

Creative Living with Jamie (episode 260): Oto Kano

What if you left the shoulds behind in favour of what comes easily? That's exactly what Oto Kano did when she decided to become an artist.  Step by step, she moved from a life full of shoulds to one that worked with her bipolar instead of against it. In this episode, Oto shares how she made the transition from feeling guilty about doing what she loved to truly owning her gifts.

Oto Kano is a Japanese-British abstract painter and jewellery designer based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Her work focuses on encapsulating chance encounter of colours, and her bipolar. She paints the energy she sees in her mind during depression and mania. She moved away from her university lecturing job teaching computer science to becoming an artist at 36, in order to follow a creative life that worked with her bipolar, not against it.

A Little Note Regarding the Audio: Despite an unexpected power outage, I managed to get this week's episode to you. I record the extro on the fly so it sounds a little rougher than usual. I hope the message gets to you all the same!
