Stefanie Bales on Her Ink Transfer Landscape Paintings + Creative Process

February 5, 2019

This week, I’m chatting with painter Stefanie Bales.  She lives and creates right here in San Diego, California, and I’ve loved getting to know her in person at our local Rising Tide meetups. Stefanie paints in several different mediums, but in this conversation we talk in detail about her gorgeous ink transfer paintings.  These pieces are SO unique and we dig into all the details of her creative process!  Part painting and part collage, Stefanie’s paintings draw you in with their soft rainbow of colors, life-like details and dreamy landscapes.  Be sure to pull up Stefanie’s work while you’re listening - you can find her on Instagram @stefaniebalesfineart.

15: Art + Fear

October 30, 2018

Let’s start an honest conversation art-making and fear.  In this episode, I share the top three fears I’m personally dealing with at this point in my art practice.  They’re a different set of fears than the ones I had when just beginning my art business 4 years ago - which just goes to show that no matter how far along the road we are, we all deal with them.  I hope that being real with you and sharing these art fears of mine will help you to see that we’re all in this journey together!
