Megan Woodard Johnson is a mixed media artist who layers vintage paper ephemera with paint, various drawing media and found objects to tell evocative stories within her work. She shares how she uses these as the basis of her work and why they are so important.

Alice talks with Megan about your growth as an artist rarely being linear, often it comes from twists and decisions you made along the way and it’s only looking back we understand how all these parts fit together to create new opportunities.

We spoke about building a creative practice alongside a family and adapting to whatever your current situation allows, how it can be difficult to find honest critique of your work and where new classes and experiences can invigorate you.

Megan has some practical tips for loading your car (!), teaching workshops and how these also inspires new ideas and how creative collaborations allow you to blossom.

      Hi, there is a link to most of the places you can listen on the main podcast page – just search for Art Juice in your favourite podcast place (Google, Podbean, Stitcher, Spotify, Breaker, Overcast….) I have also now added the audio embed here. It’s usually here every Tuesday as we publish, just this week I was travelling. 🙂
