Soul Fueled Art with Pamela J. Bates (10)
Welcome to the Kellee Wynne Podcast.  This is episode 10 and today Kellee is talking to fellow artist Pamela J Bates about her journey to finding her art after 20 plus years of working as a graphic designer.  Pamela shares the moment when the world shifted for her.  It’s truly a goosebump moment and she shares her thoughts about what it means to find your own unique voice. Pamela quotes Andy Warhol“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” This is her ethos behind how she works and what she advises other artists to do.  Just keep creating art and be authentic to your own style.  Practice and know that not everything will be a masterpiece and that's okay but if you paint enough, if you create enough art, there will be pieces that shine. For more details about this week's episode go to www.unfoldwithkelleewynne.com If you haven’t downloaded it yet the free guide of 100 Ways to Make Money as an Artist Without Selling Your Art is available on www.Kelleewynnestudios.com/100.

Tell Your Story in Paint with Manaz Raiszadeh (7)
Welcome back to Unfold with Kellee Wynne. Today we bring you a conversation between Kellee and her second-ever interview.  When we talk about allowing the art to guide you, there’s no better example than the bold Manaz Raiszadeh.  Manaz is an abstract painter, of Afgan parents, born in France, a San Diego resident, married with two little ones.  She found her medium through paint and it is through paint that she tells the story of who she is.'To me they’re not a contrast, they co-exist together’ This is how Manaz speaks about the many beautiful facets of who she is.  Manaz was in a traditional job in tech till about 5 years ago when, unhappy with her job and knowing she wanted to start a family, she started that inner journey of discovery.  She knew she wanted to explore her creativity with art but didn't know where it would take her.    She started painting on her living room floor and she also started writing, something mentioned by Adrith Goodwin, in a previous episode.  As she looked to find herself and tell her story, she just painted and when she started, although her paintings were abstract, she saw homes and villages appear.  Something she couldn’t explain but she didn’t fight it.  They carried on appearing until they didn’t anymore, and it was then that she found the style that she is known for today.    Her work as described by Kellee is the bold feminine meets graffiti.  Manaz is influenced by feelings or a word and then it becomes a shape and it evolves that way, with each layer, adding on top of each other and Manaz say they make sense to her and the beauty is when her canvas evokes a similar emotion from her audience.  “When it truly comes from within you, it connects you to more people”.When discussing other artists' work, Manaz says she will always look and appreciate other artists and be inspired and if she gets stuck, she may allow herself to be inspired by a colour or a shape but never copy because they’ve already done it, and she wants novelty and excitement.   If she truly get’s stuck, she will take a break and leave the studio, either to take a walk or spend time with her babies and returns when she’s refreshed.In this episode, Manaz also talks about the need for community, the importance of sharing her story,  and also the impact of journaling and so much more.  If you haven’t picked up a pen yet to start journalling, you’re surely going to give it a try after this episode and when you do, let us know how you got on, we’d love to hear from you!

Welcome back to Unfold with Kellee Wynne. We’re still getting unstuck and today we’re talking about Cultivating Creativity After a Dry Spell.  We’ve talked about Kellee’s blocks and here she continues to share her processes with us.“At the soul of who I am, painting is what I’m called to do” as far as opening statements go, that’s pretty compelling.  And if this is something that you resonate with, don’t worry, Kellee is sharing more.So what do you do when you’ve had a dry spell?  Kellee has some suggestions - Keep moving with your creative practice and when you tap into it, you’ll know you’ve arrived!  Keep making the art that lights you up, and if you haven’t found it, keep looking.Other suggestions are;Get out of the house and go do something. Especially after living with the pandemic and playing it safe, we’ve forgotten about the things that fuel our fire.  For Kellee, it’s getting out in nature and also visiting museums.   Kellee also loves visiting flea markets and connecting with items of history and connecting with that moment in time.  Even a drive can fire up creativity especially if it’s to a new area near where you live.Another favourite is learning more about art.  Watch videos, visit other artists or trade people. Learn the stories about the artists who came before us.  Study art history, check youtube Art History tutorials from the big museums.Find your community.  Get support.  Find people who understand what you’re doing.  Have art sessions together and learn how to ask for feedback and also how to give it to others.  Get writing, do day journals and explore this medium of creativity and see how it moves and inspires you.In this episode, Kellee also talks about her new workshop called Super Bloom.  The excitement and passion are palatable.  Kellee describes the moment best, “It is the magical moment where spontaneity meets years of hard work, where all that you know about painting finally becomes all that you feel. It's a rare moment and an artist's development. And it always happens when you least expect it quickly.”If you haven’t downloaded it yet the free guide of 100 Ways to Make Money as an Artist Without Selling Your Art is available on www.Kelleewynnestudios.com/100.

Push Past Ordinary with Ardith Goodwin (5)
Welcome back to Unfold with Kellee Wynne and boy, do we have an episode for you today!  Kellee sits down with Ardith Goodwin and sparks are flying, the energy is so good.  Ardith is a seasoned artist with over 18 years of experience and gave us the low down of how she found her voice and honestly you’re going to want to take notes and maybe even listen back a couple of times.   Ardith and Kellee get vulnerable and open up and share things with authenticity we don’t usually see.Ardith talks about;Her journey to finding her voice and how she found her way to fracturing and her deep love for angles and layers and their indisputable meaning.  It took deep work, a lot of research, time and effort before she hit her aha moment but it also gave her clarity which has guided her ever since.What it takes in order to have a successful art business.  Not only do you need to have the technique (which comes with significant practice and effort) but you need to know your absolute why, which often comes from a deep place.   Then comes the foundation of business and knowing how to sell.  Knowing how to sell with confidence is the deal-breaker. But don’t forget your art.  It’s nothing if not a complex balancing game.  These are discussed in such depth, that you feel you’re on the call with Kellee and Ardith and you’re there nodding along.It’s all gold but when you listen and take it all in, the last important thing may be that if you are starting out as an artist, either as an artist trying to make it to the next level or a hobbyist ready to turn it into a full-time role, get support and guidance from those who have walked the path.  Both Aridth and Kellee have programs and one may be right for you, but whatever you do, don’t do it alone.  Get guidance and community so that you can get to where you’re going quicker.  The links mentioned in this episode are; Push Past Ordinary Society with Ardith GoodwinIf you haven’t downloaded it yet the free guide of 100 Ways to Make Money as an Artist Without Selling Your Art is available on www.Kelleewynnestudios.com/100.
