Guest Interview with Artist Trish Hoskin - Episode 15
It's here! My interview this week is with Digital Artist Trish Hoskin, all the way from Southern Australia.
Time to go down under! I was thrilled to chat with Trish, one of my favourite artists who's from Adelaide, Australia! You will enjoy getting to know her through our fun interview. How cool was it to chat across time zones and share stories about creativity and art? It was super cool.
You may know Trish Hoskin already from her super stunning artwork, ranging from floral and architectural to intricate fantasy and abstract (which she makes look so effortless), beckoning you to join her on an exciting adventure. I've long been an admirer of her work which I see often in our digital art groups and on Instagram. Trish's story is fascinating. A world traveler with a special love for London UK (my beautiful home town no less) you could describe Trish's artistic life as a wonderful adventure in art proving that art can take you places.
From a pilgrimage to London UK to commemorate the anniversary of the death of the late Lady Diana, Princess of Wales to rubbing shoulders with celebrity, appearing on T.V., publishing a book about her travels and her art and contributing to two digital artistic teams… with all this Trish is a prolific artist who creates her art and nurtures her artistic vision and expression. And did I mention she does all this in addition to a day job? How does she do it?
Tune into the show and you'll learn:
- How Trish, as a photographer, transformed herself into a digital artist…
- How she stays true to her creative and artistic vision…
- How she meets the challenges of self-doubt and resists the temptation to compare…
- How Trish stays motivated...
- Her tips for other creatives and would-be digital artists dreaming of tapping into their creativity...
It was another fun chat and such a pleasure to get to know this amazing artist.
Kick back, listen, be inspired.

And not only does she produce an astounding amount of stunning art every week - she does it in addition to running not one but two businesses.
She shares her secret!
Indeed, art is her life and she weaves it all together beautifully, as you will discover in this episode.

Episode #11 - Let's Talk about the R Word
The R word. Rejection. Nobody likes to talk about it or admit quite how much it happens to us as artists and creatives. We always love to talk about the successes - and with good reason. Success feels good...is good. Getting rejected - not so much. It feels horrible every single time. In fact even the thought of experiencing it can scare us such that we allow it to stop us in our tracks and fear of being rejected can stop us ever creating again. Or we continue to create, it can stop us showing our work. So how can we overcome this as artists? For like death and taxes, if you're an artist you're going to come face to face with rejection and not once but many times. So what to do?
I've had a few thoughts about this topic bouncing around in my head for a while and I finally got them down on paper to make sense of them and wanted to share my perspective in this latest episode. The fear of rejection lurks even there, but only for a while.
I'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences around rejection and how you dealt with it (in particular as a creative) and especially tips to help us all cease to fear rejection and see it for what it really is.
You can listen to this episode and previous episodes in itunes and if you do please leave a review, it means more people can find my podcast.
Hope you find something to think abut and as always, thanks for listening.

EP10. In today's episode I share a few thoughts about the gift of creativity, nurturing it and how important I think it is to listen to and speak in, our own artistic voice which can sometimes get drowned out by a million others.

Episode 9. I often get questions about how I create my grungy, gritty textured art. It's not often obvious that the one single layer that is on the canvas, metal or acrylic consists of not just one but many layers of textures, sometimes hundreds. So when I got a couple of questions recently I thought it would be great to talk a bit about it and share some thoughts on my process.
I hope you enjoy and thanks for listening.

Ep #7. Often the hardest part of doing something we find truly meaningful is simply beginning. We put it off, we procrastinate, we make excuses to ourselves...we do anything except actually begin the thing. Why? In this latest episode I talk about something we probably all continually struggle with - especially as creatives - and how it can become a barrier to doing anything worthwhile and even ruin our lives- if we allow it. Imagine having a list of things you'd love to do in your life... and never doing them because you never begin. When you look back what will you feel?
