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

“Valuable and tangible insights for creatives”
“Miriam and her podcast are full of insights for both new and seasoned creatives alike. I especially enjoy how she brings her personality and personal stories to the show. Tangible takeaways don’t have to be boring and she’s leading the example of how this can be done. Episode 91 is a great reminder to slow down on the Zoom meetings and screens so I can recharge my very own creative batteries. x”

  1. I definitely connect with what you said in episode 101. To wrap my mind around the fact that someone could even want to spend money on my art beyond what I might think it is worth is very difficult. This comes at a good time for me as I have just been asked to make commissioned quilt and I have never done this before. I have made lots of quilts, but I have always given them away as gifts or donated to charities. I was told that she would pay whatever I asked, though I am thinking that I should get a little more clarity in the form of a price range. I don’t usually keep track of my time working on quilts (it is a very time consuming project normally). The time it takes can vary a lot depending on complexity. She gave me free rein on what to do, but that is actually harder than having some guidelines. It will be small because it is for a baby (a boy).
