Publisher's Summary

An artist's unique voice is their calling card. It's what makes each of their works vital and particular. But developing such singular artistry requires effort and persistence.

Best-selling author, artist, and illustrator Lisa Congdon brings her expertise to this guide to the process of artistic self-discovery. Featuring advice from Congdon herself and interviews with a roster of established artists, illustrators, and creatives, this one-of-a-kind book will show listeners how to identify and nurture their own visual identity, navigate the influence of artists they admire, push through fear and insecurity, and appreciate the value of their personal journey.

Inspiring

I've been pursuing art for over 20 years, and found this so helpful and hopeful. I see so many artists struggling with finding their voice today, and highly recommend this read/listen to any creative at any stage in their artistic journey. I believe it will answer questions. Help one realize and discover how very simple it is to find one's own voice as an artist. Beautifully full of thinking for the creative.

This book works for singers too

I am a singer and this book has great tips that can also help me find my artistic voice. In my mind the water colors and painting mediums that she spoke of were like vibrato frequencies and belting verses falsetto or even wether I use the major or minor scale to sing original songs. The book will be helpful to those who are more focused on the answer than the question and you will become more aware of who you really are when you allow yourself to do some of the suggestions in the book.

This is a good one!

I have been a fan of Congdon’s work for years, but I was pleased to find this title on Audible. The author fearlessly describes the one subject that it seems artists don’t allow themselves to speak about. I have been thinking about this topic for years, because I have been loathe to commit to one style or subject matter. Congdon helps cut through the mythology about artistic voice and also charts a course to help you uncover it. Great stuff!

A Very Good, Informative book for artists

No matter where you’re currently at in your own art journey, this book provides some great insight from a successful artist who has walked the walk. My only disappointment is that it’s not read by the writer. I always feel a greater connection when hearing it directly from the author. Just my own preference.
