with host artist Miriam Schulman
Today, we’re talking all about how this time is shaping my art practice, and the lessons for you on bringing playfulness into your art.
In this podcast, you will discover…
- Why you need to embrace your inner weirdo.
- Why the opposite of play is not work. The opposite of play is depression — so to lift yourself out of depression, you need to bring playfulness into your art.
- As artists, it’s very important to understand the relationship between stress and creativity.

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 or become better artists. 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.

Listener shout out of the week!
Amazing insight, like she was looking into my life and reading my mind. The feelings I’ve been having, the reluctance to finish a commission, spinning my wheels and not moving forward, she addresses all of it. Thank you for a “spot on” uplifting chat from one weirdo to another!”
