had the pleasure and honour of being interviewed by Alexis Fedor [who, fyi, has the most soothing voice in the world] for the Artists in Business podcast this summer, and I’m really happy that I can share our conversation with you! During our 30ish minutes together, we talk about how I was able to discover my tribe and how important it is to deepen your relationship with those few who resonate with your work the most.
In this episode we also touch on
- How to think outside of the “marketing box”, and find new ways to connect with the environment you live in, to sell your creative work/spread your meaningful message [ ~ minute 3]
- Why I started pitching my art to gynecologists [ ~ minute 7]
- How I came up with my pitch to prospective clients [8:15]
- The importance of storytelling [~ minute 9]
- How your pricing is often tied to your self-worth [~ minute 14]
- The importance of the “why” behind your work and who you are as an artist, and how that connects you with your tribe [~ minute 18]
- Being a creative, when your environment has no clue how to support you constructively [ ~ minute 23]
- What I wish someone had told me earlier about the creative process [~ minute 25]
- My most favourite, kick-in-the-cucu, book recommendation. [~ minute 27 ]
And finally: My best experience as an artist in business so far [28:35]
If you’re an artist or person who worries about not being able to find your tribe, or that you won’t be able to find enough clients to keep your revenue consistent and predictable, this episode is for you.
Also: If you really want to take your enjoyment of this podcast episode to the next level, turn it into a drinking game à la “How I Met Your Mother” for the word combo “and so”…. even if you only drink water, I’m pretty sure you’ll end up with some sort of poisoning.
Kidding aside, in this episode with Alexis I spill a lot of emotional beans on my life as an artist, where I started and where I am right now, and I hope that you find it helpful on your personal journey!
Let me know what you think!
I send you lots of love and hugs, and another thank you to the wonderful Alexis for having me and holding space for me and my journey,
