Welcome to Burst and Bloom where we have conversations with visual artists about what they do, how they do it and why. I am interested in finding out about what fears and challenges they have faced along their journey and what techniques or thought processes they can share with us when it comes to slaying the DRAGON of resistance! Ideas BURST into our lives and like a gardener, an artist cultivates a beautiful BLOOM for all of us to enjoy. Grab your coffee and let's chat about the artist's life.
I had a wonderful conversation with Veronica Funk, professional artist living in Airdrie, Alberta Canada! In this conversation she shares so many tips and tricks to slaying the dragon of resistance.
