In this episode, Alicia returns as a guest host to interview Vancouver-based abstract artist Amy Stewart. Stewart has been drawn to the interconnections of art, play and nature since her childhood. Memories of her childhood and nature shape her adult imagination, and they are reflected in her paintings’ rich textures and vibrant tones. Her pieces are often inspired by the feelings that come both from the natural world and from engaging fully in her community and with her loved ones. Her sense of humanity—the private experiences of suffering and celebration—are evoked by her canvases’ unique explorations of colour, which range from exuberant bursts of brightness to contemplative reflections on darkness.
 
In this discussion, Amy shares: 
-How she handled transitioning her studio practice during the pandemic 
-What she did to get involved in her local art scene and how that helped her create a strong network with which she could build her career
-Her tips for how to get started with commissions, marketing that you offer them, and charging appropriately for your time
-Advice on building relationships with interior designers
