  1. Love love LOVE the podcast! I listen to it (and re-listen) on my daily walk and it’s great because I don’t go home until I’ve heard the whole thing – which means I get about an hour in each time! Great topics, interesting viewpoints, and smart discussions! I feel smarter and more artsy every time I listen to one. Congratulations on a great podcast and thank you for such terrific quality.

  2. I DO listen, Julie! I look forward to finding a new one in my inbox. I love listening not only to your insights into your own art experiences but also the interviews with other artists who share different ideas about approaching art. I feel like I have just been privileged to hang out with you and your mom and any guests you have!

  3. Thanks again for this great podcast! It’s so much fun to kinda hang around with you and your mum. Your discussions are always fun and covered with so much interesting (yes, I say the word) topics. I heard you mentioned thinking about making an online class about printing without all the big gear. That sounds awesome! I have a volunteer buddy, who takes me out on trips once a week (sometimes “big” trips, sometimes just a walk in beautiful and always inspiring nature). She has been in Art School for 2 years, bus has dropped out, because it was too vague and she found it too hard that the teachers never really told what you should improve, so you had no idea than just to get “better”. And the insanity of that all, having one painting getting totally bad critisised, and then a couple of weeks later, you show the same painting (nothing changed) to the same teacher and he is all in awe about it. I can understand how frustrating that can be. However, we visited the Escher museum last week and today we were talking about the (im)possibilities of doing printwork at home. She said she nearly bought a printing press, but then realised she’d need so much more to actually be able to print. So when I heard you mentioning this possible new class, I thought, this might be a class we could take together! We could both learn from you and practice at home together. Just saying, you got someone very excited 🙂

    It’s also very interesting to learn how much preparation work is done for someone to demonstrate at a booth on something like CHA (I stick with the old name). I admire how well you think ahead of things and know how to reach people far away from your booth and please the creative needs of those who are actually at your booth and see things up close.

    I missed the second half (sorry), because my bestie popped up on my screen and we went chatting and well, I can’t do to conversations at once. So I’ll have the pleasure of listening to your podcast tomorrow a second time 🙂

    xx Michelle
