I enjoy this podcast but, can one of the two hosts PLEASE stop saying HMMM-MMM! It's very annoying especially when it's repeated every 13 seconds and really disrupts the flow of your podcast and the listening my experience.

Podcast cover
Read more
Art Quilter, Lynne Brotman approaches her work with a “beginner’s mind”. She considers herself a member of quilting activists everywhere who use their art work to convey messages of social injustice, political dissent, environmental issues, spiritual awakening or personal experiences. Lynne says she doesn’t have to look too far for her subjects. When she recently reached a roadblock in her work, Lynne concluded that “you can turn around, risk crossing over [the road] only to discover a cliff or you can build your own road. I have decided to build my very own road.” That road has resulted in a personal challenge “100 Art Quilts in 100 Days.

Podcast cover

Mary Taylor's art evokes visions of another time yet is a combination of the latest digital technology and common everday, often found materials. "In my studio you’ll find flat files and cabinets filled with hand made papers, printmaking papers, sheet metal, wood, stones, gelatin, limestone, acrylics, oils, pastels, wax, inks and pigments as well as found objects. The tools in my studio range from computer, digital printers, digital cameras, scanner, brushes, knives, brayers, drill, hammers, clamps and saws. Materials come to me from art suppliers, friends, hardware stores, dumpsters, recycling bins, thrift shops, and tag sales. From all these resources I create one of a kind wall hung art and artist’s books." That leaves me wanting to know more. How about you?

Shehas a rug hooking studio in downtown Amherst, Nova Scotia where she shows and sells her one of a kind hooked rugs, creates rug hooking kits, patterns, hosts workshops, and sells supplies. It is a big creative space with a dye kitchen in the back where Deanne transforms old clothes and fancy wools into hooked rugs. In this warm colourful space Deanne also writes books on rug hooking, and creates the designs for her kits and patterns. You allprobably think we’re going to spend an hour talking about rug-hooking, but as I discovered when reading her book, Inspired Rug-Hooking: Turning Atlantic Canadian Life into Art, the mechanics and how-to of hooking a rug take a backseat to the wisdom Deanne shares about creating in any form.

Podcast cover
Read more
In her own words, “I am a wife, mother and grandmother who is deeply touched by the suffering of the people I meet in the desert. In their faces I see myself and the faces of my family and think of the saying, “There but for the grace of God go I”. I have certainly had tough times in my life and can thank my education, family and life’s opportunities for where I am today. With this in mind I create art that is a way for me to release my pain when I return from a day walking the trails that the migrants walk through the desert so near to where I live.”

Rank #18: Artist with a Song in Her Heart: Judith Heartsong

Podcast cover
Read more
Judith Heartsong has been working as a professional artist for thirty years, after a public school education which was completely art-centric. As a child she was always out in nature, in the woods and along the creek beds of northern Pennsylvania where she developed a sense of awe and respect for the natural world early on and that devotion has never wavered.

Special allowances were made in the course of my education to provide art instruction and the time I needed to focus on it. I studied privately with some tremendous artists and worked with every sort of material I could get my hands on to build my knowledge of mediums.

Judith is currently a professional artist and prolific painter with an impressive resume and a mover and shaker in creating and sustaining the art community in the Washington DC Metropolitan area. She has painted a mural at the National Zoo, licensed artwork for collector plates, created a limited edition series of prints sold on Princess Cruise line,
She has served on the board of a local art center and most recently works as a corporate art consultant. And if that’s not enough, Judith hosts an artist’s salon each month at her fabulous new studio. We’ll find out about that and so much more.

Rank #19: Mary Fisher Celebrates her 65th

Podcast cover
Read more
Norman Mailer, the literary tough guy who was covering the 1992 Rebuplican National convention for The New Republic, was awed by the “Republican princess” and the magnitude of her appeal. “When Mary Fisher spoke like an angel that night,” he wrote, “the floor was in tears, and conceivably the nation as well.”
Called “A Whisper of AIDS,” the speech is included in “Words of a Century: The Top 100 American Speeches, 1900-1999,” you can watch and listen to it on YouTube.
Mary Fisher tested positive for H.I.V. in 1991 at the age of 43 and has spent the last 20 years combining advocacy and art-making. 
Back in 1992 the Republican National convention was on my TV as background noise.  At one point, I glanced up and saw a woman I could identify with as a young mother, but here she was saying she had AIDS. Mary left quite an impression on me. Little did I know that years later our paths would cross at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. This time I was drawn in by her artwork. We connected on some level and have been friends ever since. It is my honor to interview her today and help her celebrate her 65th birthday - Mary Fisher style.

Rank #20: Bridgette Guerzon-Mills: Sight | Insight

Podcast cover
Read more
Bridgette Guerzon-Mills is drawn to the inherent beauty and spirit of the natural world, and her artwork is a personal dialogue that reaches into the stillness of that spirit. Through both imagery and medium, Bridgette creates organic pieces that speak to the cycles of life, growth and decay, memory and the passage of time.
Her mixed media paintings incorporate moments captured by photographs with the richness of paint, creating a bridge between two worlds – the real and the reconstructed. By laying down layers of paint and pieces of photo transfers, papers or fibers she creates depth in both form and meaning. The canvas becomes a multilayered surface that speaks to both the visual and tactile senses. This integration of diverse layers creates an intimate connection that invites exploration.
It is this insight and meaning and how where it comes from that we will discuss.
