Meet the Guest 

Maxine Orange Bern joins us on the microphone this week! She holds many positions within our community – local artist, Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation board member, podcast host, Artworx curator, and many more! As she pivots with the times, she is now sharing her art with the world through digital downloads.

Cliff Notes 

Maxine and Shantelle debunk myths about creative people and discuss the importance of making time for allowing your creativity to flourish. Being creative and vulnerable with what you draw, write, etc. can be intimidating, but Maxine has great advice for those who may be hesitant to share their creations with the world.
