    Detlef Tibax - Gaining Clarity

    1:37:15

    I am very excited to release my recent chat with Conservationist and Artist, Detlef Tibax. We talk about Detlef's personal journey and his ongoing relationship with nature and art; and how they met and have both grown together to eventually create "Art 4 Conservation" We take a deep dive into finding work, art, life balance. Whether you're full time work or career is art or not, we soon realise that actually all of the struggles, frustrations and joys are all the same. We talk about the need for passion and a deeper reason that drives our art and decisions, especially during more testing times or when it would be easy to put our creative pursuits to one side. Beyond this we go into the role of Art and Conservation, dealing with insecurities and pushing yourself forward as an artist and a person, the pros and cons of making money from your art as well as the pros and cons of being able to move around mediums. All this and much more in this episode.

    Finding your Niche

    43:30

    In this episode I explore questions around niches – what are they? How do you find one? Are they important? With the help of some challenging questions that I pose at the start, you may find it easier to investigate your motives for choosing a niche.

    Scott Burdick - Painting Your Passion

    1:15:20

    In this episode I speak with writer and artist Scott Burdick about a wide range of topics; some that you wouldn’t expect to hear in an art podcast! But as the podcast goes on it becomes clear that these are the topics that Scott addresses heavily throughout his work, both written and painted. We begin with a little insight into Scott’s history, how he became an artist, and the importance of painting your passion. Before we delve into the realms of politics, life experiences, philosophy and how these create the stories we manifest into art. Scott and I then move on to discuss social media’s role in the art world, and its effects on confirmation bias and false facts, before finally tackling the themes of fragility and fear. TRIGGER WARNING: Whilst all discussions have taken place with sensitivity and respect, there are a few topics mentioned within this podcast that some may find uncomfortable/upsetting.   Find Scott and Susan at: www.ScottBurdick.com Scott and Susan Patreon Find me at: www.tomshepherdart.com Instagram/tomshepherdartist www.patreon.com/TomShepherdArt YouTube - TomShepherd Art facebook.com/TomShepherdArt/
