About Jeanne

Jeanne Oliver grew up in rural Illinois and now resides in Castle Rock, CO. She is inspired by our personal stories, travel, and nature.

Jeanne uses art to tell her current stories and also those of growing up among gravel roads, cornfields and early life surrounded by open spaces. Through mark making, layers and mixed media, she hopes to convey that we all have a story to tell.

Jeanne is married to her dream maker, Kelly, and the mother of three funny and creative children. She homeschools her children even though she has tried to get out of it a few times. You can often find her hiking, creating in her studio and finding an excuse to have another cup of coffee. She speaks and teaches all around the country and sometimes she even gets to cross the pond. She was told that she needed to find that one thing but she doesn’t like listening to directions so she embraces many loves and that has given her a sweet mash-up of family, art, and travel. Connecting with women and sharing that each of us has been creatively made is one of her passions.

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 in October 2022. When I’m not in the studio, you can find me hanging out with my husband, adult kids, and a tuxedo cat named Ebony.

“I’ve listened to this episode 3 times already


I’ve been on Miriam’s email list for a bit, but was hesitant to add another podcast to my (already hefty) subscription list. A few days ago, I saw the topic of this conversation with Beth Pickens, and it felt downright cosmic. I’ve found that I’ve been struggling to find the time and motivation to make art what with parenting, pandemic life, my own internal struggles. I have been blown away by how much amazing information and encouragement they packed into a 30 minute conversation. I’ve listened to it 3 times. It’s like listening in on a really engaging conversation with friends combined with a very supportive therapy or coaching session. It was also just a reassuring reality check for this aspiring artist! Oh! And? I did end up subscribing to the podcast because I love Miriam’s energy, and she clearly has a wealth of information and inspiration to share.”
