Mexican-born artist Marianela de la Hoz is expressing her thoughts and feelings about the world through highly detailed surrealistic egg tempera paintings.

Eugenia Brodsky is a photographer. She and her husband Samson, the video producer, are a part of the bright and dynamic Ukrainian creative scene. Moved by the united Ukrainian spirit, Eugenia followed and collected artworks created by Ukrainian artists from the first days of the war.

S4-E1: San Diego artist and 3-times cancer survivor Judy Salinsky shares her story of battling cancer and how color helped her heal
I have known Judy Salinksy since 2018 when we both were members of the San Dieguito Art Guild. I admired her work as a painter and I watched her explore the world of bronze sculpture for the first time. But little did I know about her personal story, the challenging upbringing as an artist, and victorious battles with lung cancer... Whatever life has thrown her way, she has never given up on herself and her art.

ArtReach San Diego Mural Program - with Izzy Halpern
ArtReach San Diego is one of my favorite organizations that I like to support. This is why they are making recurring appearances on ITAS :) And that's for a good reason! ArtReach is helping bring art and art education to schools and community centers that otherwise would have been left out due to lack of budget or other circumstances. In this episode, I'm happy to introduce you to ArtReach SD mural program and its manager Isabel (Izzy) Halpern. Izzy and I are talking about the ways ArtReach is able to make every mural project a meaningful communal event and the effects this program makes on everyone involved. artreachsandiego.org facebook.com/ArtReachSD instagram.com/artreachsd twitter.com/ArtReachSD linkedin.com/company/artreachsd

Corita Art Center - with Nellie Scott
I'm very excited to have Nellie Scott, Director of Corita Art Center in LA as my guest for this episode! My very first introduction to Corita's art was in December 2019 when I was working on a project based on my series of influential women for a local charity auction. Corita's story, dedication to art and art education, and freedom of her spirit blew my mind! She spent most of her creative years as a Catholic religious sister of the order of Immaculate Heart of Mary in Los Angeles, CA. A woman artist (in the 1960s mind you!), an educator, an activist, and a leader - she embodied everything we praise today but unfortunately was almost forgotten by the art community in the last 3 decades. This is why Nellie Scott, an art historian, and Director of Corita Art Center is so passionate about saving Corita's legacy and introducing it to as many people out there as possible!

Everything You Need to Know About Giclee - Mark O'Donnell
Some of you may know that I work part-time at a local fine art printing company here in San Diego. In one and a half years, I have learned so much about giclee and other creative ways of reproducing art! And that is thanks to my boss and mentor Mark O'Donnell - an artist, and a fine art printing industry veteran. In this episode, Mark shares his personal story that led him from the art school to the fine art printing business when it was at the very beginning of its development. What I love about Mark is his openness and desire to educate and help every artist on what they can do take their art to a broader audience with prints.

When the Art Finds You - Allison Dawrant
In this episode, I'm chatting with a wonderful artist from Canada Allison Dawrant. I'm personally very excited about this conversation because I feel like I've known Allison for at least a few years. I've been following her work for a while and I've even stolen some of her work for my art classes and she was totally cool with it (that's how awesome she is!) Allison embodies that unstoppable, kind, happy creative energy that draws people to seek and share her work. She's intuitively inventive with her art and more importantly - she feels and spreads the joy of it!  Find more information in this blog post: https://intheartscene.com/2022/04/17/when-the-art-finds-you/ Find Allison online:  https://www.instagram.com/artbyalimac/ https://www.artbyalimac.com/ https://artmagik.ca/ https://www.pinterest.ca/alimacg/_created/

Fables and Humanity - Cristy de Witt
In this episode, I invited a Netherlands artist Christy de Witt to discuss her highly unusual style of art and talk about her inspiration. Turns out, Christy is a big fan of fairy tails! No, no, not those sugar-coated Disney versions of the fairy tails but the real ones that have deep roots in hundreds and hundreds of years of European culture. Grim, scary, ugly but so... human. This is exactly what Christy's "little monsters" are like - very relatable and true to human nature.  To see Christy's art, check out her Instagram @mizzwitty Her website is currently under construction, so stay tuned for that!  You can also check her out on YouTube  If you liked this episode, don't forget to buy us a coffee!

#SupportUkraineWithArt
#SupportUkraineWithArt
I couldn’t avoid addressing the current situation in Ukraine. I don’t want to start an argument about what is right and what is wrong. All of this is wrong. The only thing that is right is the support that people show to each other. And this is what I wanted to talk to you about. The best thing we can do right now is to unite. Don’t finger point. There’s so much misinformation on either side and it only dives us. If you follow the news, please find as many different sources as you can to have a broad spectrum of information Better yet, find real people you can talk to who have connections or families in Ukraine or Russia and who get to hear of what is going on from their loved ones locally. Help as you can. Every little bit helps. I have a list of carefully vetted trusted organizations you can donate to on the blog post. https://intheartscene.com/2022/03/08/support-ukraine-with-art/  Use your voice online and offline to advocate for peace and humanity And I have a word for my beloved art community.  We can do better! We are the ones who can inspire people in tough times! We are the ones to touch hearts and bring awareness! So I’m starting a hashtag #supportUkrainewithArt and pledge to donate 100% of the proceeds from "buy me a coffee" and from the sales of our branded merch up until the end of the war in Ukraine to relief organizations. I will also donate 50% of all my art prints sales as well. I ask you to join me in this effort or spread the word about it. Use hashtag #supportUkrainewithArt to let people know that you support the movement.
