Hanging Out With Mad Mimi {My First Artist Interview!}

I’m so excited to share my interview on  “Hanging out with Mad Mimi” with you!  I sat down with Mira (who is a total sweetheart, by the way) to have a conversation about my art journey + how I am figuring it all out along the way.  I loved the theme that kept showing up through the whole conversation: staying open in any new adventure is so important.

I have always dabbled a little in art through my life, but didn’t make it a priority as an adult until a few years ago. It was as simple as googling for art classes in my area, finding an abstract acrylics class + taking the leap to show up.  Being consistent with this class and making my joy for art a priority brought me to where I am today.  Sometimes it’s as simple as ‘sticking with it’ to get where I want to go.

You guys, this was the first time I sat down with someone to talk about my personal art journey and it was so exhilarating!   And after talking to Mira, it was amazing to see how far I’ve come.  Reflection on my journey has made me appreciate my courage + made me excited about what is next.  I try to always remember that My art + I are a work in progress.

We dove into some great topics that I’m sure you can relate to, especially if you’re embarking on something new as an adult:

  • Dealing with failure
  • Finding your joy vehicle
  • Being true to who you are
  • Letting go of the feeling that it’s been done before (because it hasn’t been done by you!)
  • Ways to handle the imposter syndrome
  • Staying open
  • How you can get started on your journey of becoming more yourself
