Today's conversation has the potential to be life-changing, especially if you're an artist. Today David Lesinski and I chat about how to break out of autopilot, why artists shouldn't just stack our metaphorical (or literal) paintings in the garage for no one to see, and how important it is to nurture a high-vibe environment as an artist. I'm fairly certain you're gonna love David's kind and direct wisdom as much as I do.
In today's episode we get to talk with Siolo Thompson. If you haven't heard of her yet, then I am so stoked to introduce you to her. She and I know each other through the music/art scene in here Seattle, WA.
Siolo is a self taught visual artist and also the creator of the gorgeous Linestrider Tarot Deck and Scrying Ink Tarot Deck. She also illustrated the book, "The Better Bombshell" where writers and artists redefine the female role model.
I've so enjoyed talking with Siolo about creative entrepreneurship in the past, that I couldn't resist inviting her to join us today. She's a total powerhouse when it comes to knowing how to value her contributions and art in an analytical and straightforward way, which as you'll soon learn... it's something I adore seeing in my peers because I know it to be one of the greatest factors in being brave.
A lot of folks who know Siolo Thompson as a visual artist don't know how she got her start in the work of visual art, or at least I didn't when I first met her. This is where we jump into today's brave conversation...
