There is an interview with A.K. Fielding historian, writer, artist, illustrator and educator. Angelina discusses Junk Journaling and the Creative Process plus its use of many creative skills. She shares how it can inspire creativity in your life...In recent years, she forged together her love of writing about early American history and art to create works that she hopes will inspire people to study America's rich past.1
You might be interested in the interview with artist Sonia Bublaitis who through the interplay of different media i.e. Photography, her aim is to express the spirituality of the world around her and to challenge the observer with each piece using somewhat unorthodox techniques.1
Sonia has been greatly influenced by the works of Jackson Pollock and Wassily Kandinsky to name just a couple of artists. 1
"Colour hides a power still unknown but real, which acts on every part of the human body” W. Kandinsky
Or maybe you would like to know more from Maurice Quillinan who is an art curator.
Maurice Quillinan grew up in Limerick, Ireland. He studied at the Limerick School of Art and Design (LSAD), the Royal College of Art, London (RCA), the Ecole Nationale Superieur des Arts, Paris and the University of Limerick (UL).1
He has travelled extensively which invariably has informed his work. Central to his practice is a strong set of spiritual values which underlie his exploration of existence, using the landscape and the figure as metaphors for the metaphysical challenges we encounter. This internal dialogue manifests as layered and blurred works, which suggest that there are many meanings and explanations for the spiritual, psychological and physiological conundrums we are introduced to.. images that suggest that we don’t have the knowledge to ask questions let alone expect coherent logical replies.1
The podcasts are conversations between Rod & Inci Jones and their guests, you can learn from their experiences, insights, and travels. They cover a wide variety of topics that will be of great interest to anyone that is, or wants to be more creative.
