ART FOR YOUR EAR brings you stories from some of my favorite contemporary artists. When I studied Art History, the best part was, well, the gossip. I loved finding out why artists did certain things, what was going on in their personal lives, and behind-the-scenes details about other artists they knew and worked with. This podcast is exactly that ... inside-scoop stories from the artsiest people I know. You'll hear first-hand from these talented, successful, full-time artists (who also happe ...

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 MBA Carve 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
