Soul Made Events: with Kellee Wynne [241]
Art Juice
by Louise Fletcher/Alice Sheridan
3d ago
Today we're talking about that tipping point moment when you know things need to change which happens at various stages of the creative path. There are times when we need a little nudge, time to reflect or sometimes even to be given permission to create what we desire OR to strip back and gain some clarity as we craft the next stage of our journey. We're introducing a very special in-person event, to be held in the UK over 2 days in May 2024, hosted by Alice Sheridan and Kellee Wynne Conrad. You can find out more and add your name to the Priority invite list here: www.soulmadeevents.com We tal ..read more

The #1 Way to Sell (or Share) Your Art [240]
Art Juice
by Louise Fletcher/Alice Sheridan
1w ago
If you want to sell art (or workshops or mentoring), what's the most effective way? You might think of galleries or art fairs or group exhibitions or social media, but in our experience, the answer is none of those. In our experience, the good old email list our most effective sales tool. And yet, many of us struggle to send emails - perhaps we feel we're bothering people or perhaps we don't know what to say. In this episode, we break down our own approaches to email, discuss the role of Substack, and suggest that it might be time to double down on this precious tool. Mentioned: Get Louise's w ..read more

Nurturing Our Ideas [239]
Art Juice
by Louise Fletcher/Alice Sheridan
2w ago
As artists, we rarely lack ideas. But how do you nurture those ideas so that they come to full fruition? It's possible to rush that first inkling, so that it never has a chance to reach its full potential. It's also possible to have so many flashes of inspiration that you never find a focus. Both Alice and Louise are feeling the need to make a nurturing space for their current ideas, and both are working on ways to do that. We don't have all the answers - but maybe we have some thoughts that can help you find your own balance. Find Alice Sheridan at:  ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠www.alicesher ..read more

The Value of a Sketchbook Practice [238]
Art Juice
by Louise Fletcher/Alice Sheridan
1M ago
How do you use sketchbooks? Do you make beautiful illustrative drawings or is your book more of a scrapbook? Do you work regularly in sketchbooks or only now and then? And do you prefer loose sheets or actual books? This week we're diving into all this and more. Sketchbooks are a place we return to time and again to regroup, gather ideas, or simply experiment with materials. Neither of us could make our art without periods where retreat into our sketchbooks. Perhaps this conversation will encourage you to do the same :) Find Alice Sheridan at:  ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠www.alicesheridan.com ..read more

More Sales Please! with Sara Dalrymple [237]
Art Juice
by Louise Fletcher/Alice Sheridan
1M ago
The art of selling may not feel like it comes easily, but today Sara Dalrymple joins Alice to talk about how artists can see this differently. We talk about preserving your no. 1 asset, a key non-negotiable you must be prepared for, and more than one reason why artists are perhaps BEST placed for making sales - once you have a few things adjusted and in order! Having grown her own photography business, Sara founded a specialist sales consultancy, mentoring other creatives selling their products and services online. She has helped hundreds of business owners bring in consistent sales through co ..read more

New Year's Catch Up [236]
Art Juice
by Louise Fletcher/Alice Sheridan
1M ago
Roll on 2024! It's been a while since we've recorded together and we really enjoyed getting back together for this catch-up chat. Our primary focus this week is the the differing ways we have both begun the new year. Alice eased in to 2024 with a lot of family time, while Louise took an exciting trip to New York ... and yet perhaps we're not so different after all. Our chat reveals that we are approaching this year with a new attitude and a new appreciation for things other than work (although art will still feature prominently of course!). Perhaps this meandering conversation will help you re ..read more

The State of Instagram in 2024 [235]
Art Juice
by Louise Fletcher/Alice Sheridan
1M ago
As we bounce (?!) back into 2024 after a seasonal break I'm joined by JoMcCarthy for an informal discussion around how we find ourselves using Instagram - or planning to. This isn't a strategy plan, or top tips for getting the best marketing results, but about how we use the platform, and finding ways to enjoy what it offers. We dip into phone addiction, habits, what content we like to consume and to create. When social media is viewed by many as a time suck, what should you consider if you are thinking of taking a longer break? Are the alternatives? Chat with Jo on Instagram @jo_mccarthy_chat ..read more

How was your year? [234]
Art Juice
by Louise Fletcher/Alice Sheridan
3M ago
As we head for our Christmas break, we look back on 2023 and ask ‘how did it go?’ For this episode, we pulled out planners and notebooks to look back on what we hoped to achieve and how it all went. This process can be so valuable; the pause is a chance to reflect on your priorities and an opportunity to realign them if need be. It can also be an opportunity to recognise your own achievements, to start thinking about new goals, and perhaps also to notice what you no longer desire.

Patience, Persistence and Self-Belief [233]
Art Juice
by Louise Fletcher/Alice Sheridan
3M ago
This week, we’re all about inspiring women. Louise reveals a surprising fascination with medieval history, and explains how it led her to reflect on the value of patience, persistence and self-belief even when it seems unwarranted. If one determined woman can beat seemingly insurmountable odds to find a long-dead King, what might we be capable of? How often do we give up on something just before the big breakthrough? Where might childhood trauma be holding us back in later life? And how much selfishness is too much? We explore all this and more in this inspiring episode. Who knows, maybe we ha ..read more

Minding the Gap [232]
Art Juice
by Louise Fletcher/Alice Sheridan
3M ago
This week, we answer a question from a new listener who has recently begun to paint. Eric is wondering how to make the leap from copying images to making his own unique work. This question sparked a discussion about the ways in which artists find their own unique path. For us, this has included gathering visual references, noticing (and valuing) our own preferences, trusting our instincts, learning about other artists, and finding ways to learn in-person. For beginners there is always a gap between what we want to create and what we are capable of creating, and this gap can feel frustrating. I ..read more
