Art Pro Podcast
About This Show
The Art Pro Podcast is a weekly show hosted by me, Jessica Watchorn. Every week I interview an artist or other art world insider about the practical behind the scenes aspects of building a career in the visual arts. I don't think every artist should have to figure everything out from scratch so this show is all about making art, making a living and making a name for yourself!

Today I bring you an interview with Kelli Maeshiro. When I heard Kelli had moved to the philipines to try to make art full time, I knew it was a story I would want to share with you. She saved up some money and gave herself two years to try to make a living from her art in Manilla. Since moving to Manilla she’s already found a market for her paintings, and sold out her first solo show before it even officially opened. In this interview I ask her how and why she moved to a country she’d never even been to in order to work full time on art. She shares tips on integrating into a new art scene, working with galleries, and running your studio and business, including the many uses of spreadsheets for artists! Love it!
