About Danny Gregory

Danny Gregory has written several internationally best-selling books on art and creativity and is currently writing his thirteenth. He lives in New York City.

Danny is a co-founder of Sketchbook Skool, a production studio that makes films and books and events that shows people how making art can change your life. They have 25 online kourses and 50 teachers and 50,000 students. It’s sort of like art class and self-help combined. They’re kinda like Bob Ross meets Marie Kondo meets Queer Eye. It’s really fun.

Through his books (Shut Your Monkey, Art Before Breakfast, Everyday Matters, An Illustrated Life, The Creative License, etc) and in the several large online communities he oversees, Danny has shown thousands of people how to ignite their inner artists, embrace their creativity and tell the stories of their lives. From Indiana to Indonesia, people who haven’t drawn since grade school have picked up the creative habit and have gone on to publish books of their own and show and sell their artwork.

Danny spent three decades as one of New York’s leading advertising creative directors and has created award-winning, global campaigns for clients like Chase, American Express, IBM, Ford and many others.

About the host, Miriam Schulman

In case we haven’t met yet, I’m Miriam Schulman, Chief Inspiration Officer of The Inspiration Place. I inspire art-lovers to reconnect with their creativity, learn new skills and techniques, and profit from their art. After witnessing the 9/11 terrorist attacks, I abandoned a lucrative hedge fund job to work on my art full time. Rejecting the starving artist myth, my paintings have been seen on NBC, published in art magazines & home décor books, and collected worldwide. I’d love to invite you to check out one of my free resources for art lovers (of every passion level) at schulmanart.com/freebies
