Ep. 026 - Wedding Dream Team, Justin Straw + Sandra Nichols
The wedding dream team here in the Black Hills, Justin Straw and Sandra Nichols joined me and talked about everything from themselves to what couples should look for in photographers or designers when planning their big day.  This episode is packed with so much information. Here are some more talking points we go over:  Hiring the professionals that are going to be a good team, together.  When it comes to decor and planning, be different. Be You.  Setting personal boundaries between clients and vendors. Being in love with love and weddings as a vendor.  Trusting the vendors and professionals you hire to handle all the little details when something isn't going exactly as planned.  And of course we talked about the theme of the podcast: art and advice for other artists. #COMMUNITYOVERCOMPETITION. It's a mindset.

*SPECIAL* Ep. 15 - EDUCATION AND ART, DEFINING A NEW PERSPECTIVE (with Dick Termes)
Dick Termes is a local legend born and raised in Spearfish, South Dakota. Education is a large part of what got him to where he is today, and we talk largely about his path to today. A big proponent of education, Dick encourages artists to continue pursuing higher education in art and to be a continued student while practicing their medium. We also talked about his unique discovery and process behind the six-point perspective. This is a special episode. A little over a year ago, Dick and I had a similar conversation when I wrote an article for the Black Hills Visitor magazine. You can find that article a little here. I loved getting the chance to speak with him today and see how much has even changed and evolved in his artwork over the period of time. It's incredible how much he is still doing in the art world. I love that he is making his work digital and working on a virtual program for folks around the nation and globe to experience from their living room! After our conversation, you can stick around to hear a reading of the article and a little snippet of my experience in Dick's virtual reality program.  BHV Article Links in BHV Article mentioned in the last paragraph: Interactive Monument  Video Tour of Gallery You can follow the Termesphere Gallery on Instagram and Facebook and Dick invites you to follow his personal page on Facebook!
