Sitting down to make work can be seriously one of the hardest parts about being an artist. It’s can be even more challenging when faced with a project that feels like a creative risk. In this episode, Ella Sophie is talking to us about how to take creative risks, and what really goes into making work consistently.  

In this episode we talk about: 

  • Building a large body of work 
  • Developing your voice as an artist to keep your voice consistent 
  • Taking risks creatively  
  • Creating work that’s actually in alignment with who you are and what you want to make

I met Ella recently while talking on a panel about creative risk-taking. She is a consummate risk taker — while I, on the other hand, tend to be a bit more measured. The conversation was so rich and interesting, I thought I’d have her come by the show so we could continue that chat, and get even deeper into the topic of taking creative risks.
