Hello and welcome to Curator on the Go Podcast – a show for artists and art professionals who are ready to build a thriving art career and business while doing something they are passionate about. If you are ready to set goals, find your artistic voice, brand, and niche, understand how to price and sell your products and services, and change your life – you are in the right place! This podcast will also appeal to anyone who loves art and interested to learn more about the business side of the art world. Art and entrepreneurship are the two key things any community must have! My goal is to provide the environment that supports both and that will later help fund local art projects.

Monica Shulman is a self-taught photographer and abstract expressionist painter who has been creating art in various mediums for over 25 years. She believes in the power of art to create a moment and to evoke emotion. Her work is energetic and playful and reflects her interest in flawed beauty rather than perfection. Using strong colors and contrasts, coupled with heavy, sculptural layering, Monica strives to create connection and movement in each piece.
Episode 7 – Linds Miyo
Born and raised in California, her work strives to evoke the strong, direct light of her childhood. A trauma survivor, Linds is interested in the balance between intention and that which is beyond our control, the meeting place between our best efforts and happenstance. She often uses broad representational panes of textured black in her work, washing layers of color over top – folding the dark relief of the past into multi-dimensional present-day, with honesty, happiness, and sparkle. Linds Miyo lives and works in Toronto and is currently in a studio residency at the Museum of Contemporary Art.
Episode 6 – Nik Torres
Born in Colombia and raised in Canada, Nik takes as inspiration her life experiences of migration and self-discovery. She finds ways through color and texture to create an abstract narrative that allows her to reconcile with her own mental health and constant emotional state. Throughout the years, her work has evolved into a much deeper emotional practice with a goal to bring the viewer into a personal comfortable and serene place where they can aim to appease their own internal battles. Nik wants to use her work as a visual anchor and reminder that life has serene moments even in darkness.
