Because I didn’t fit in and no one pressured me to fit in, I could be different and I could do art.
I’ve been wanting to get today’s guest on the show for quite a while now, and I’m excited it’s finally happening. Shantell Martin is an amazing artist that I met at Summit Series last year. She has a very distinct style, and you’ve probably seen her work as murals and on walls and in lots of different places. Shantell gets commissions all over the world to draw on all kinds of things, from walls to cars and more.
One of the things I love most about Shantell’s work is that it’s very thought driven and thought provoking. All of this aligns very much with her mantra, “You be you.” She is all about helping people discover through they are through a creative and analytical process.
Listen in as we talk about Shantell’s upbringing, her creative process, the time she spent in Japan, why you have to believe in your art, how to make money with art, and so so much more.
Does progress really exist
