062: The Way You Do Art is the Way You Do Everything

with host artist Miriam Schulman

Today, we’re talking all about how learning to paint is one more way to learn how to manage your mind.


In this podcast, you will discover…

  • Why I say “how you do art is how you do everything.”
  • How learning to paint is really self-development, because it helps you manage your mind.
  • Why it’s important to bring your life into your art (and art into your life).

About the host, Miriam Schulman

In case we haven’t met yet, I’m an artist and founder of The Inspiration Place, where I help other artists learn how to profit from their passion. Through online classes, business coaching programs, and a top-ranked podcast, I’ve helped thousands of artists around the world develop their skill sets and create more time and freedom to do what they love. My signature coaching program, The Artist Incubator, helps artists go from so-so sales to sold-out collections.

A graduate of Dartmouth College and M.I.T, I initially pursued finance but after witnessing 9/11, I abandoned a lucrative hedge fund job to work on my art full time. Since then, my art and my story have been featured in major publications including Forbes, The New York Times, Art of Man, Art Journaling magazine as well as featured on NBC’s “Parenthood” and the Amazon series “Hunters” with Al Pacino. My forthcoming book with HarperCollins Leadership on how to make it as an artist is scheduled to be released January 31, 2023. When I’m not in the studio, you can find me hanging out with my husband, adult kids, and a tuxedo cat named Ebony.

  1. I am a Karen, yes-much trouble using Arches. I am over the hump! An art group discussion over Arches and I would love your opinion–are Arches pads at Hobby Lobby or Michaels of the same quality as Blicks? Presently, I have large sheets bought from an local artist that buys in bulk. love it

    • Great question! We encourage you to post your question in the classroom on The Inspiration Place, where Miriam visits at least once a week to answer questions. I`m sure other people are wondering the same thing and would benefit from her answer there!
