Amy McNamara, Artist and Designer, shares her practice of art-making as an observer and listener in a life filled with ever-expanding connections.
What happens when an artist takes on a 365 Day Drawing Challenge purely for the joy of it? Join Artist and Designer, Amy McNamara, as she invites us into her creative process. Wondering what it feels like to discover a new doodle? Listen in as Amy describes her experience. What if you don't consider yourself an artist? Don't worry -- listen in to hear why Amy always wants to be an amateur! Where does she go for inspiration? How can being disoriented be an exciting part of the creative process? How might conversation lead to a visual art experience? It's the walkabout, Amy shares, that has to happen before the drawing. Does she ever go back to "touch up" her drawings? You'll want to hear her describe her relationship with her drawings. What about the business of art? What's next for Amy? Be sure to listen all the way to the end to join the fun.
