When artists gather up at the end of the day, raise a glass and swap stories, interesting things happen. As a working artist, I do lots of traveling, teaching and art residencies, shacking up with groups of creatives for varying periods of time.  One of the best parts of this crazy lifestyle is the conversation that happens once the brushes are cleaned and put away for the day. 

Every artist has their own backstory, motivation, mission and method.  None of them are dull.  Listen in as I interview artists of all types; visual, film, recording, performance and any other creative superstars I can talk into meeting me in a bar. They'll share their stories about making a life out of making their art.
