A Personal Approach to Balancing Art and Responsibilities

Dec 04, 2023

Uncover the Hidden Windows in Your Day 

Greetings fellow artists, dream-weavers, and creative souls! Ever been asked, "How do you find time for it all?" I get it. Balancing art, coaching, running a gallery, and curating can seem like an intricate dance. But here's my secret: it's all about those magical gaps in time.

Embracing the Gaps

Picture this: a podcast host wondering aloud how on earth I manage it all. My answer is a simple truth – beyond being a scheduling wizard, I live for those gaps. They're scattered through our days, even in the most hectic schedules. A gap of time is an opportunity waiting to be seized, often lost to mindless scrolling.

The Art of Making Time Count

Here's the kicker – it's not about working tirelessly without breaks. I'm a firm believer in a daily blend of work, rest, laughter, and enjoyment. Feeling stressed? Dive into a 3-minute gap for a laughter session. Running behind? Snatch 5 minutes to tackle that email stressing you out....

Revitalize Your Daily Routine: Starting Your Day Right for Artists

Nov 22, 2023

Every artist's journey begins with a fresh start every day. Just like a blank canvas waiting to be transformed, mornings offer that beautiful opportunity to reinvent, reimagine, and rejuvenate. I've always been a firm believer in the magic of mornings, where the world seems quieter, the air fresher, and the possibilities endless.

She takes her time, and her day doesn't officially start until that delicious cup of coffee touches her lips.

Jun 01, 2023

By Sergio Gomez

Pull up a chair, grab your favorite sketchbook, and let's have a heart-to-heart conversation about something we all know too well: the ups and downs of being a creative soul. If I had a dollar for every bad studio day, I would be rich. I know, right? It's like we're all part of this secret club where creativity can sometimes be a wild rollercoaster ride.

When Inspiration Takes a Rain Check

We've all experienced it. That moment when we eagerly step into our sacred creative spaces, ready to dive into our art, only to find our minds drawing a complete blank. It's frustrating and disheartening, especially after completing a new series or a commissioned project, or returning from a rejuvenating vacation. And sometimes, it strikes when our thoughts are scattered all over the place. It's as if the creative "magic" has vanished, leaving us questioning our abilities.

The Comparison Trap

To make matters more challenging, we live in a world where social media bombards us...
