I found that what Lanecia shared about choosing life, moving through grief, being honest and claiming art for herself was exactly what I needed to hear in this moment. I’m in love with the depth of thought behind her work (which you’ll get to hear!) as well as her perspective on the ways art makes us better humans in the world.
We talked about…
-- How Lancia creates with patience and mindfulness, and let’s her work “become” in it’s own timing (and the practicality of working with deadlines within this process)
-- What led to her transition from minister to artist, and how her background plays out in her vocation now
-- How Lanecia moved through the grief of losing her daughter, both on and off the canvas, as well as advice for others working through grief.
-- How both creating art and engaging with art makes us better humans
-- How Lancia has fiercely directed her own art education and her favorite resources for doing so
-- much more!
And! Be sure to check out the show notes on this one. Lancia shared a WEALTH of educational and inspirational resources, and I linked them all up for you.
