Art Life Conversations with Kelli Folsom

I am SUPER excited to announce the official release of my brand new podcast where we talk about all things art life!

I’ll share with you the struggles and wins to making art, as well as art history, and we’ll even talk about business and selling. 

The purpose of this podcast is to inspire, motivate, encourage, and share the real life of a working artist no matter where you are on your art journey.
