Episode 170: Today I talk with Jason Fladlien, of Rapid Crush. We talk about how art saved his life and why he considers business an art. This started as a Zoom call, which you can see below. For some reason, my camera wasn’t working, so I posted a pic of me on before the call. This was such an insightful and inspiring chat!

Episode 165 : Today I get to chat with two ladies from the Denver Art Museum; Ann Lambson, Interpretive Specialist as well as Jena Pruitt, the museum’s Communications Associate about the Mexican Modernism exhibition. Both were integral parts of the production.
Episode 164: Today I chat with artist, Michael Burgher. I found his channel on YouTube and knew I had to talk to him. He has a deep love of art history and a cool Surrealistic/Dada style to his painting: two things that equate to someone I want to hang out with.
Episode 163: Today I talk to Charlotte sculptor, Keith Bryant. I’ve been walking through and enjoying his work without even knowing it! It was so great to chat with him. He used to work exclusively with clay, but now he uses pieces from junkyards and found objects to create pieces like these. [Hard to believe that these used to be trash]. It is so inspirational how he literally breathes new life into these objects. He’s been doing his beautiful work for more than 40 years.
Episode 162: Today I talk to Austin-based artist, Denise Prince, who does these fabulous photographs. She’s really created a unique brand for herself. We talk about her Captivating not Captive project, which has encompassed her last 10 years. She was so fun to talk to. Take a listen to find out what’s behind the art.
Episode 163: Today I talk to Christina Steward, an Atlanta-based artist. We have such an inspiring chat! She was a computer programmer until she felt an intense creative calling. So she made the switch to full-time artist and hasn’t looked back since. Since then, her work has gone through several incarnations, from painting/drawing to jewelry to knitting/ pattern designing.
Episode 160: Today I talk to L.A. collage artist Dale Voelker, who I discovered on Saatchi.com. I was drawn in by his colorful art mixed with text. When I found out he owned a graphic design studio, I knew I had to talk to him. We talk about the line between corporate and fine art, among other things.
