Do What You Love interview: Juliette Crane (with my first podcast!)

I am delighted to bring you this Do What You Love interview with mixed media artist Juliette Crane

"autumn wind"

Exactly one year ago tomorrow Juliette had her first showing at a local library. One year on and she has fans all over the world, and is about to be published in Somerset Studio. If you want to know how she has done this in such a short space of time, you need to listen to this interview!

"sing your song" (I have this one in my studio)

Juliette also talks about her process, her gorgeous whimsical style, and the importance of creating in her life. Dive in and enjoy!

"fresh from the ocean"

"beauty in prayer"

Thank you so much Juliette for sharing your story so openly.

NB: As my first audio interview I wasn’t quite sure what I was doing (apologies if you can tell that by the editing), but it was so interesting listening to Juliette’s story of how her creative business has just exploded over the past year, and I hope you will find it inspiring too.  Thank you so much to Nelly for the suggestion to be brave and try audio, it was fun!

  1. Wonderful! I am a big fan of Juliette's blog. I am one of the people who loves her progression paintings. I love hearing about how an artist came to be. It is so good to hear that they suffer from the same fears an insecurities as I have.

    This was a wonderful interview, I hope this is the first of a long line of podcasts.

  2. Beth! Your voice is divine and was meant to be heard! It made me smile from ear to ear to hear you made me miss you so much too! I hope you continue to do these as it makes the pond between us seem just a little smaller.

    Juliette! It was so lovely to hear your words as you spoke. Your interview will continue to inspire so many people to listen to their whispers and to trust. Thank-you for sharing a deeper side of you heart in this podcast.

  21. This is a great podcast, so many areas that I relate to in her journey as an artist. Looking forward to hearing more of your podcasts..:)

  22. Hey Beth

    Thanks so much for doing this. Agree you have a great voice, and I'd also add you strike the right balance between allowing Juliete to answer fully and prompting her/adding your own take every now and then. A rare quality that. Plus like your down to earth questions. So definitely a great format. It was an inspiring listen, and for once I sat back and did just that, without multitasking or drifting into something else entirely.
