This week we are talking to Alaskan artist Shaylene Reynolds on this super special bonus episode! We will resume our Mental Mountain Series for the next episode, but there are only TWO episodes left in this series. After the series is over, we will be doing a Season 1 Finale episode where we will be celebrating all of you who have either started or restarted your creative journey🎉
Shaylene was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska and is part Yupik/Eskimo & Gwitchen Native Alaskan. She studied Fine Arts at the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) until 2010 when she moved to Richmond, Virginia. She recently moved to Dallas, Texas where she is currently creating new works.
Shaylene generously shares her own ups and downs on her journey to becoming a full time artist (selling her most of her work on Instagram), what it was like living in Alaska, and how she made time for her art while she was working full time as a nanny(!).
We hope you’ll enjoy this super special interview with artist Shaylene Reynolds!
Let’s be Friends!
