Episode 14

What you must let go to make your best art /14

As of July 2023, we won't be posting new episodes but you can connect with Bec & Michele and continue the conversation via the links below.


After two celebratory announcements, Bec and Michele dig into the very heart of what can make the creative process so painful at times—the reality that when we want to build something new, we often need to deconstruct the old first: destruction before creation.

Particularly if you're an artist feeling overwhelmed in the studio, trying to pull together multiple ideas or techniques and finding yourself frozen in analysis paralysis, it may be time to let go of some things to make the art only you can make. It takes some onion peeling (and probably tears too!) but it creates the space for something truly special to emerge.
