art for your ear : putting a bow on 2019

… AND THE GIVE-AWAY WINNER IS … Julie Liger-Belair!

Thank you so much to everyone who entered, and for your lovely comments about the site, podcast, etc. You guys are THE BEST and I’m so lucky to have you in my life! xo


Welcome to a little bonus mid-holiday episode of ART FOR YOUR EAR! Listen right up there under the sparkly 2019, or subscribe on iTunes. Here’s a peek at a few of the things I talked about during this mini-sode.

First, in early March of 2019, my 100 year old basement was transformed into a home studio:

Oh, “Broad Maude”. There we are, working together in perfect harmony. Isn’t she lovely?

Next, a look at my latest series. These are the first in what I hope becomes a looooong project filled with some really giant pieces… hm, I’m going to need a LOT more costume jewelry:

Ahhhh, I love them so much. And did you spot Liz in there? She made it in by way of a Canadian penny! FYI, the gold tape on the bottom is where the name plates will go {they’re currently at the engravers}.

And finally ~ drum roll please ~ THE GIVE-AWAY:

A tote and two signed books, all of which celebrate female artists, both past and present! If you’d like a chance to enter, just leave a comment below, and on January 1, 2020 I will draw one name as the winner of the whole bundle. Anyone from anywhere can enter. Thanks so much for listening to ART FOR YOUR EAR again in 2019. I’m so happy it’s back, and I’m so thrilled that my new co-hosts agreed to be co-hosts! All of their links are below. Also, GIGANTIC thanks to THRIVE  for supporting the new version of the podcast. They are my people, and have been ridiculously amazing to me during this past year of ups and downs. Thanks, ladies. xo

And with that, I will say bye-bye to 2019. See you in 2020. ~ Love Danielle

  5. Nicolle Cure /// 12.28.2019 /// 4:43am

    Danielle, I was extremely touched and inspired by this episode, I am also awaiting for polyp and fibroid removal so when I listened to this I was like.. woah! I know how painful this is, so I can relate. Good luck to you in your surgery. I am completely in love with your new pieces #tumortreasures is genious. Thank you for always being a bright light in our community and such a powerful artist. Cheers to a healthy, happy and productive 2020. — Nicolle. (P.S. Crossing my fingers so I can win the giveaway!)

  6. Julie Mok /// 12.28.2019 /// 5:05am

    Thank you for taking time out to fit in a mini podcast. Moved me to tears. I’m listening in the UK. I’m a single mum, same age and decided to take a plunge to ‘do the work’ as an artist. Your podcast and those of Thrive (found through you) has been an invaluable resource and inspiration. Keep up the good work (your gran’s jewellery seems v fitting for your latest pieces). I’m starting my blue sky list today.
    Please enter me into your draw so I can complete the collection of your books. Take care x

  7. Deborah Rae Nelson /// 12.28.2019 /// 5:16am

    Good health to you in your surgery. You are a trooper.

    Please enter me in your giveaway. I will cherish the goodies if selected.

  8. Jackie B /// 12.28.2019 /// 7:01am

  9. Dani /// 12.28.2019 /// 7:53am

    I would love to win that! I can give the Big Important Art Book number one to former art student as I have my own copy and I wish more young aspiring artists knew about the history of female artists. There is a certain amount of empowerment missing from art classrooms in the US.

  17. Samantha Agar /// 12.28.2019 /// 8:22am

    I keep giving your books as gifts because I think everyone should have them! It would be awesome to have some signed ones for the next friend’s birthday or accomplishment to celebrate. And I keep putting off ordering my Art Girl Rising shirt because shipping is so pricey so I’d love a tote to, well, tote things in, until I have a shirt to wear at the same time ‍♀️ Thanks for a powerhouse podcast season Danielle!

  18. Jennifer Kring /// 12.28.2019 /// 8:23am

    So excited for the mini episode! Thanks for taking the time to post it during this season of waiting and rest. I appreciate the many ways you support your tribe of listeners. Blessings on your new works and this new year.

    Happy New Year! I love the new podcast format. It’s been fun observing the journey that your art is taking you on. I love these new pieces.

  23. Fionna Hanna /// 12.28.2019 /// 8:55am

    Happy new year!!!

  27. Julie Breton /// 12.28.2019 /// 9:06am

    Thank you for supporting women artists. You are a great inspiration.

  28. Breanna Shermer /// 12.28.2019 /// 9:12am

    I have had a crazy year as well, and the last few months I’ve spent listening to your podcasts and feeling inspired to push my art boundaries. I’m a young mom if soon to be 3, just trying to find my art niche and what goals I want set for myself. I love discussing important points that you bring up in your podcasts with my art tribe because we’re all facing those same points currently in our lives and making the decision to take that big step to further our own art careers.

    Thank you for inspiration, and I look forward to what 2020 brings for us all.

  29. JPCaro /// 12.28.2019 /// 9:17am

    May 2020 bring you unlimited inspiration and joy! Thank you for enriching our lives with art and connecting us all!

  30. Michelle /// 12.28.2019 /// 9:19am

    Have loved following along and all the inspiration you’ve curated!!

  31. aselniczka /// 12.28.2019 /// 9:35am

    I am green of envy about your pieces, cause I’m on a creative block right now and starting to think that maybe that’s gone. (As some other of my passions from past years.)
    On the other hand, I still care, so maybe it’s not gone. And something my friend told me after I complained about it: don’t take being an artist as a burden. So now I have something to think about.
    And I’m sure the books would help *cheesy smile*

  32. Michelle Heslop /// 12.28.2019 /// 9:40am

    Thank you for your thoughtful mini-sode, Danielle! You continue to be such a light in this creative community. Thank you! Wishing you more time with broad Maude in 2020, and a boat load of happiness and health. Xx

  33. Gwen /// 12.28.2019 /// 9:44am

    Always such thoughtful work and words Danielle. Keep creating! Would love to win 🙂 Gwen

  35. Vivien /// 12.28.2019 /// 10:04am

    Thank you for this mini episode!!! Here’s to 2020, and doing the work!! I get sooooo much out of these podcasts.

  36. Valerie Arntze /// 12.28.2019 /// 10:49am

    In my studio making art listening to you and the other artists talking about art, challenges, goals and successes. Those are the best studio days…so inspiring! thanks and all the best for 2020.

  37. Julie Liger-Belair /// 12.28.2019 /// 10:53am

    Ooooo, I’ve had my eye on these books for a long time! And also my ears on the podcast (so to speak 😉 for a long time too. Glad that you brought it back and really looking forward to listening to more episodes in 2020 while working away in my studio!

  38. Bredt Handy /// 12.28.2019 /// 11:00am

    I’ve been following you on instagram (loved Where’s Waldo in Venice) but this is the first time I’ve listened to your podcast. I’m hooked! Seems fitting that my 2020 start is your 2019 wrap up. Thank you Wishing you good health and fulfilled goals

  39. Monica Bennett /// 12.28.2019 /// 11:08am

    Thank you for bringing back your podcast and for all that you do to champion women artists. I’m really enjoying the new format and look forward eagerly to each episode. The best is listening while in my studio, a place I will be waaaay more in 2020. (That’s my new year’s resolution and I never make those – lol). Thank you for your generosity with this giveaway!

  40. Kelley Fewer /// 12.28.2019 /// 11:13am

  41. Sara Willson /// 12.28.2019 /// 11:16am

    I’ve been listening to the podcast for a while after hearing about it from an art teacher friend & have also recently read Your Inner Critic is a Big Jerk, but this is my first visit to your website. Loved seeing the images that accompany the episode! I will have to visit here more often.

  42. Christa Stribrny /// 12.28.2019 /// 12:02pm

    I’m not an artist and have only dabbled in art journaling therapeutically, but love art and learning more about it from you and your guests. Take care and best of luck with your surgery. 🙂

  43. Alana Rice /// 12.28.2019 /// 12:04pm

    Thank you so much for the inspiration! And the good cry. I was bawling by the end of this podcast although that could also be the Christmas chocolate. In all seriousness, you inspire me to follow my dream of being an artist. Thank you.

  44. Ashley Byers /// 12.28.2019 /// 12:05pm

    Thank you for all you do to encourage, inspire and motivate other artists and creatives. Your podcast has made a huge difference for me coming off of a difficult year. Ready to break free of my chains and start creating for fun again!

I hope 2019 ends better than it was and 2020 gives all the opportunities we need. in the meantime, I hope all your dreams come true and your solo exhibition is a wonderful success. I will keep listening to your podcast (I started following you since the first episode was released, you have grown so much)!!! happy 2020 for you and your boys.

  47. Tara Benson /// 12.28.2019 /// 12:38pm

    Hi Danielle! I wanted to thank you for all that you have done for artists, the art world and for my personal world of art that exists in my head and my little studio. You’ve given me hours of companionship, insights, laughs and Cravings for chips . 2019 has been such a rough year for you with the loss of your father. You have dealt with it in such a human way and given us the honor of sharing your grief and maybe a way to handle our own. Wishing you many adventures in 2020. And thank you.

  57. Janice Beaudoin /// 12.28.2019 /// 2:52pm

    NOW, I have a reason to look forward to the new year. Your work is great and I appreciate the links to other talent. Having found this by accident today makes this even sweeter, I was trying to justify keeping my studio. Now I know I must keep it. I hope you know the “Bad at sports” crew in Chicago? I feel like I need to send you something, I better get back to work!

  69. Maria /// 12.28.2019 /// 4:34pm

    Danielle, Thank you for everything. Your book “your inner critic is a big jerk” changed my life. I’m still working on finishing some work but at least I’ve started working on my art again. I too have art school trauma. Maybe that’s why I became a teacher.
    Your site has become a huge help for my students. We research many of the artists that you post about, Samantha French is a huge hit amongst my middle school students.
    Thank you.

  95. Teresa Wong /// 12.28.2019 /// 9:05pm

    I love your books! What a fun contest! Thanks!

    I loved this episode Danielle ♥️ I can’t wait to sit down and get started on some goals and I had to chuckle at the SNL one…that’s been a dream of mine since Jr. High. Shall we audition together for moral support?! Anyway, loved the return of the podcast and can’t wait to see what is in store for us listeners in 2020!

    Greetings from Spain. And courage for the medical affairs that you have summoned into brilliant artworks. Is it too much meta that I’m jealous of the jealous curator? I need to grow big like you. Thanks for your art, for the curator work, for your amazing books. Please never stop.

  105. KTB /// 12.28.2019 /// 11:58pm

    I’ve been reading your blog *almost* as long as you’ve been making it. Your new work is inspiring. Thank you for reminding us to look for the silver (and bejeweled) linings to the obstacles in our lives.

  106. Michelle /// 12.29.2019 /// 12:36am

    I love your podcast! I am wanting to be more creative this new year and would love to win your books for inspiration!

  107. Jordan A G /// 12.29.2019 /// 12:43am

    Studio of dreams. Thank youuu for constant inspiration ✨

  108. Carolina Vieira /// 12.29.2019 /// 12:54am

    I’ve been reading and listening to The Jealous Curator for a few years now and it has been a constant companion when I’m working. Keep up doing the wonderful things you’re doing, supporting, encouraging and sharing other artists. That a bright 2020 may come. 🙂

  109. Pamela Cupit /// 12.29.2019 /// 12:59am

    Thanks for all you do. All the best for the new year.

  110. Kathleen Quinn-Leslie /// 12.29.2019 /// 1:02am

    Danielle, You have reignited my art spark. I don’t know what I would have done without you, your style of interviewing, your humor, your approachability and down to earthness. Thank you. I’d love more of your loot on my shelf!

  111. Jill /// 12.29.2019 /// 1:14am

    Immediately started writing my 100 list before you’d even got 5 minutes into the podcast. Number 16. Be noticed by Jealous Curator. Number 18. Have work published in a big art book.

  112. Emma /// 12.29.2019 /// 1:35am

    Thank you so much for another year of your wonderful podcast. Tonight I played it on loudspeaker in my kitchen, not really realising that my husband was listening too. When I let out a “whoa” when you said you had done 15 things on your list, he made himself known by saying “you’re really invested aren’t you?”. Yep. Yep I am. Thank you Danielle and best of luck for 2020. I’ll be here hooting along x

  113. Marie /// 12.29.2019 /// 1:58am

    Wahoooooooooo what a treat!!! Happy holidays and have a fun new year lovely way to start off 2020 and with some new work too I have a similar thing in mind. New year = some new projects = excited me x x

  114. Eve /// 12.29.2019 /// 2:13am

    Merry Christmas and thank you for your podcasts! Whenever I am having a bad day with my art listen to your latest podcast and find it suddenly a lot easier to paint, haha. Here’s to more arty fun in 2020!

  115. Elsbeth /// 12.29.2019 /// 2:34am

    Thank you, Danielle, for all the inspiration and loveliness you send out, for sharing your heart break and for being the humoristic woman you are. Regards from my warm & green Caribbean island!

  116. Elle /// 12.29.2019 /// 2:47am

    Thank you for what you do! Would love to win!

  117. Beth /// 12.29.2019 /// 3:47am

    I started listening to this podcast when I was in high school, learning to use art to cope with my own grief, and it was always incredibly inspiring to hear artists’ life stories. Now I’m an art mentor and I talk about AFYE literally whenever I can (almost to the point of annoyance.) Forever love the way you’ve created a community of fun and quirky artists!!

  118. Ellen Nicholson /// 12.29.2019 /// 3:57am

    the new studio space! I like having open space cos ya never know how big you might want to work. I share a master bedroom with my artist husband & 8 yr old artist son. We make the space work well together.

  119. Susan /// 12.29.2019 /// 4:19am

    Danielle, you have opened my eyes and my heart. I’ve been so enjoying your podcast! Borrowed your most recent book from the library and didn’t want to give it back!!

  120. Christina /// 12.29.2019 /// 4:30am

    Love listening to your podcast while I’m at the studio. You are an inspiration for working hard, following your dreams, and being inclusive and supportive while doing it. Cheers to a new year & new decade!

  121. Erin Landry-Fowler /// 12.29.2019 /// 5:03am

    Just wanted to say thank you for all of the amazing work you have done! Your books, website, podcast, and even your own artistic journey have helped to fuel my long-dormant practice.

  122. Dawn /// 12.29.2019 /// 5:15am

    A continued source of inspiration…thank you. xo

  123. Nikki Kennedy /// 12.29.2019 /// 5:23am

    You keep me going! I’m clearing out my studio space and getting a fresh start for the new year. I have my own version of Maude but she’s a Belva. I would love to win your giveaway and have a signed copy of your books and the tote is super fabs. *****eeeppp***** I’m currently teaching oil painting but I am submitting apps to teach art history also because I want to teach 1:1 women to man. The first thing I did whenever I got a new art history book was search the index for women artist. It was always a short list and I thought it was accurate. I was taught that Artemisia only had a chance because of her father and Okeeffe painted feminine flowers. I should have known all of the names.

  124. Amy Tingle /// 12.29.2019 /// 5:51am

    Happy New Year to you, Greg, and Charlie, Danielle! May 2020 be HEALTHY (less stressful and fibroid free I hope), joy-filled, and wildly creative.
    xoxox, Amy
    (I’m off to start making my list . . . )

  125. Beth Vallieres /// 12.29.2019 /// 6:03am

    Love your latest work! Your podcast is a huge inspiration and is my art-lifeline in rural Montana. Hearing your story gives me hope to one day make it as an artist myself.

  126. Sharon Leah /// 12.29.2019 /// 6:13am

    I believe the things I need to see and hear come into my life at the right time. I found your podcast this morning. LOVED listening to your list of things you wanted to do and have accomplished to date. I’m making my list!

  127. deborah weiss /// 12.29.2019 /// 6:16am

    Love the new work!

  128. Shelly /// 12.29.2019 /// 6:26am

    I have been on the receiving end of your hard and courageous work nearly every day since I found your blog in 2011. It’s hard to convey the impact of your steady voice and hearing your podcast. I was baffled for so long by the mechanics of trying to make art while being a wife and then also a mom – and having another job I care deeply about. Hearing the wide range of ways women in particular put all the pieces together has created such freedom. I’ve zeroed in on what I truly love to make, found a space to do it, protected time for it, and have finally dug out from under the pressure of needing to make something “really important”. I’m making art for the joy of it, for the ways it sharpens and strengthens my mind, for the ways it feeds my very soul. And as a bonus, those around me are starting to really notice. Thank you!

  129. Emma-Leone Palmer /// 12.29.2019 /// 6:43am

    Always enjoy your pod casts. Super new studio too, new space new, new energy, new work.

  130. Holly Stuczynski /// 12.29.2019 /// 6:47am

    So glad you are back! I’ve missed your company in my basement studio (I’ve got to admit I’m a little jealous of Broad Maude). Thank you for all that you share (the good, the bad, the real)… it all helps this artist mama feel a little less alone.

  149. Carla /// 12.29.2019 /// 11:25am

  163. Ceres /// 12.29.2019 /// 8:41pm

    Ever since stumbling upon ur podcast through an artist friend, it has changed everything I feel about what I do. The hardest part was to believe in myself and to tell myself that it’s okay, but hearing your interviews, chats and sharing sessions really turned the tables over. I admire your honesty and really appreciate everything you shared with the audience. My father left us when I was still finding my way around in life, it was a huge change that I did not know how to deal with, we were really close. I did not cry until months after the funeral when I had to leave my family and go back to school, I finally broke down during a flight thousands of miles away from home. I missed him dearly, it will never be the same again, but he left me a lifelong gift that I will forever cherish. He believed in me when no one else does. It took many years to get back on track and get to where I am right now, when I finally start working on what I love to do and found accomplishments in it. Your podcast gave me the boost and helped me find my way again once more. I am so sorry that I was not aware of what happened last year, I hope I am not too late to send you a gazillion hugs from afar. And.. thank you, just thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything, Danielle. The change you have experienced from Jealous Curator, have brought to me and many others is just as much, if not more.

  164. Lisa Eddington /// 12.29.2019 /// 9:44pm

    You have been a great inspiration to get back into the studio and start making. This year has been filled with so much loss and pain, but rediscovering my creative passion has helped me through it. Let’s hope 2020 repairs the damage 2019 inflicted.

  171. Rosalinda Sanchez /// 12.30.2019 /// 9:33am

  176. Jenny /// 12.30.2019 /// 12:22pm

    Love you Danielle! Always inspiring! May you have a wonderful artful year!

  177. M.E. Ster-Molnar /// 12.30.2019 /// 1:32pm

    I love what you do! I find that my art is starting to take off, but I still need help in not stopping myself. Is is the internet or Instagram that makes me feel that I have to put myself into a one dimensional, easy to digest package? I don’t know. And then I check out your website and I’m like – I can do this. I can be an artist and a writer and a fashion designer and teach classes. My audience is smart and deserves to hear what I have to say. So thank you. And I’m loving the 3D art with vintage jewelry collages you are doing. Back in the day I used broken vintage jewelry to decorate frames and barrettes and earrings. I’m ready for maximalism again! I can tell you’re having fun with it. XO

  178. Claira Heitzenrater /// 12.30.2019 /// 1:49pm


    Thank you for being such a huge inspiration for the bulk of my professional career! You’ve opened my eyes to SO MANY artists, provided me with resources, and showed me that strength presents herself in ways we could never imagine. You’re a rock star! I’m rooting for that SNL audition!

    All the love in the world-

    Claira ✨

    Inspite of all you go through you are doing such a great job in building this community. I’m a graphic designer and never thought of myself as an artist but in part because of you I have changed the chip to “What the heck, I can do this, too”…. Thank you so much! And btw, your new series is great! Lots of love from Spain and a happy new year to everyone.

  185. Terry Graziano /// 12.31.2019 /// 10:03am

    I loved this episode so much, but let’s be honest, I love all of them!! It was so inspiring to hear you go through your list of the things that you wanted for yourself, and I teared up that so many had come true. You made them happen, and SNL is not far off now. I am going to make my very own list today, so thank you for the idea, and for all that you do. I too have suffered with many a fibroid & abdominal surgery and I love that you’ve used the situation for creative fodder – way to make some delicious lemonade! Happy New Year!!

  186. Rose /// 12.31.2019 /// 10:36am

    Your end of the year podcast was amazing. It has me thinking about where I was 10 years ago, how much I have been inspired by you and the artists you interview, and how far I have come both personally and artistically. I am sure I am not alone, but it feels like you are a close friend! You have held my hand as I dipped my jealous little toes back in to the water, fought off the inner Critic shark monster, and started getting things done. Thank you Danielle for sharing your stories (damn even the fibroid nonsense is stuff I have dealt with!) and for helping me to see that I am not alone in the world!!! Happiest of 2020s!!! PS If you are ever in the Burlington Vermont area I’d love to show you around

  187. Eileen Cressman-Reeder /// 12.31.2019 /// 10:43am

  191. Luba Zygarewicz /// 12.31.2019 /// 7:41pm

    Dearest Danielle,
    Thank you for sharing from your heart and for always keeping it real. I was so touched by all you shared and the power of putting goals/ideas on paper. The funny thing is that, without knowing what the episode was about, right before listening to the podcast, I had a very strong urge to write down a BIG goal that I want to accomplish the next couple of years. Just putting it down on paper began to shed light on decisions for smaller things that were lurking in the background. It has become the lense through which I am making other goals, and practicing “no” to the things that do not further my BIG GOAL.
    I am so sorry about your health issues, and I wish you the very best. I am here for you ANYTIME!!! I battled with those for several years, and had a total of 8 abdominal surgeries between C-sections and taking bits of my womanhood a piece at a time. It is a beautiful thing how it is inspiring your new work…it will be a source of comfort and healing.
    I created a body of work over a few years when I was going through some rough stuff and several cyst and fibroids… which led to a couple of surgeries. It was a dark time, but became lighter in the process. I will share it with you on insta.

    please put my name in the hat/bag and I HOPE to WIN!
    Sending lots of pink/perfect pink love your way!

  192. the jealous curator /// 12.31.2019 /// 9:18pm

    (just a comment, not about the give-away) I agree to a new and hopeful 2020. I lost my mom last year and it has been a difficult one at best. I am so glad that your family and your art practice have been able to sustain you! I truly enjoy your talks and all of your books. Putting in a few more house of ‘work’ so that I can head over to my art studio and re-organize. Here’s to a positive and joyful new year!

    This podcast is so insightful and fun! I enjoy there is always an element of surprise. I have learned so much already and look forward to the conversations which present more learning opportunities to come!
