Tips for finding your artist voice

Every month I record a Q&A video for members of the Happy Artist Studio, which lives inside the membership and answers the questions sent to me that month.

It’s a very informal arrangement; I like to think of it as us sitting at my kitchen table with a coffee, having a chat about art.👩🏼‍🎨☕️

Admittedly it’s just me chatting 😁, but my aim is that it’s relatable and relaxed, rather than a more formal ‘teaching’ situation.

In July, we had some questions around finding your artist voice – a topic I see a lot of artists struggle with – so I took that section of the video out to share with you here.

I filmed this during the summer heatwave, which had apparently pickled my brain somewhat! You’ve been warned.

In this video you’ll find out my thoughts on finding your artist voice, including:

  • Why you should never try to curb your curiosity in the name of consistency as an artist
  • Suggestions for submitting your work to shows when you’re in the early stages of your art
  • Why the passing of time might not be the big deal you’re worried it is
  • My answer to basically anything when it comes to being an artist
  • Why it’s not a good idea to try to force a focus just so you know what you’re doing
  • One of my best tips for knowing when your work is ready to sell

… and lots more!
