Artists are revolutionaries and trailblazers, but sometimes they get stuck. For many creatives, their inner fear of rejection and criticism hinders their ability to be bold, create impactful pieces, and grow their careers.
Miriam Schulman, ex-Wall Street worker turned watercolor and mixed media artist, knows this feeling all too well. After pursuing her art career and gaining confidence as an artist, she decided to create The Inspiration Place. Now, this online community helps other artists and creatives find the inspiration they need to overcome their mental roadblocks and pursue their art careers with more intensity.

They discuss the connection between mortality and art, how to overcome your fear of rejection and criticism, and the impact of the global pandemic on creative spaces. Miriam also shares her thoughts on the purpose of life (hint: get uncomfortable!).
