The Lisa Congdon Sessions is a podcast for creative folks about living and working with more intention, curiosity, and joy. Most interesting to Lisa is what happens at the intersection between life as an artist and life as a human, with all our baggage, aspirations, hopes and dreams. From big questions to practical ones about business, social media, time management, and finding your way through the winding creative path- each episode Lisa will share stories, tips, insights, and conversations from the heart.

Episode 1: Lisa's Story
I decided to launch the podcast with an episode that sets the stage with my story - context for who I am and how I came to be a working artist and champion of the creative path. My story is different than most because I didn’t actually pick up a paintbrush until I was 32 years old, and I didn’t begin life as a professional artist until I was nearly 40. I never studied art or design in school. So, as you can imagine, one of the most common questions I get is: how did I go from an adult who had zero artistic aspirations or experience to someone whose life 20 years later is defined by art and an interest in the creative path? This first episode is that story, with lots of juicy bits, including my 13-year-old celebrity crush! -Lisa Congdon
