About Simone

Simone Kestelman is a Brazilian artist from Rio de Janeiro based in USA. She is a sculptor and multi-media artist working in glass, ceramics, and photography. Her work speaks to archetypal themes of life, death, love, violence, and ambition. Her visual language is universal, an emotive vehicle for all that cannot be articulated through words. Kestelman sees her sculpture as snapshots of the mind and soul at a particular point in time. Her work is humanist. Often relating to the body, or the absence of the body, the ceramic, metal, and glassworks grapple with global issues that spark strong emotions.

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.

Inspiring and empowering
This podcast motivates me to make my weird art and just go for the weirdest forms and colors. To be bold and brave with my art and take up space as an artist. I only recently picked up my art again and hadn’t really identified with it but listening to Miriam and her guests discuss what an artist is and how important it is to embrace your unique weirdness and that it’s okay to take up space and put your art out there, I felt like, “Yeah, I’m gonna do this!”. I feel like I’m not alone at my drawing desk but that there is a whole community out there and Miriam is sharing very valuable advice and experiences. What a wealth of knowledge and inspiration. Thank you!
