Being an Artist Fueled by Love with Arna Baartz

Share this post:

Have you ever wanted to create something? An artist is someone who expresses themselves freely to create a vision that they see. On today’s episode, I talk with Arna Baatz about art, motherhood and what it’s like to ‘not have a real job’ – something many creatives struggle with.

Arna is an artist, writer, educator and poet. She has been finger-painting from the beginning when her father, also creative, encouraged her by taping paper to the walls of their home and letting her loose with paint. As a result, she is an expressive artist with a belief in non-judgement, often purposely leaving her ‘mistakes’ in an attempt to allow the unfolding to participate in a finished piece.

Arna has won and been selected for many art awards including those of prestige and has had both art and words published extensively around the globe.  She is delighted to have the opportunity to create in this lifetime. Her words and poetry are transcendental to a degree and offer the intention of unconditional love and hopefully a little dab of inspiration to anyone else on a similar journey.
