    Today’s Her Process episode is a fun one for me because I’m talking with a fellow podcaster!

Yep, this feminist is venturing out in “Trump Country”, where she is pleasantly surprised by what she finds! She shares a little bit about that with us here on Her Process today, and we talk about art and feminism…what it means to be a feminist, and how this plays a role in what Kitty creates. We also talk about the struggle of the multi-hyphenate artist. Is it really a struggle? Kick back, and let’s find out! Here is my chat with the multi-hyphenate, multi-talented, Kitty Lindsay!

    12/09/2018 Duración: 10min

    Think of episode 52.5 with Sarah Momo Romero as a P.S. to episode 52. It’s a rapid fire q&a where I ask my guests the same twelve questions to hear the similarities and differences among artists of the same and different genres. Some sample questions: Do you check out other artists within your genre on social media? What’s your creative ritual? Do you have a ‘go-to’ person who you bounce ideas off of. Let’s hear what this author/illustrator has to say!

  • Ep. 51: Collaboration Series ft. Camilla Ochlan

    20/08/2018 Duración: 45min

    Today’s show wraps up my series on collaboration. It’s a tribute to art and to friendship. It’s about what happens when you’re on a roll, when you’re making strides, realizing your dream…and the unthinkable happens. What do you do? How do you go on? Do you go on? If you’re just joining Her Process for the first time, today’s guest, Camilla Ochlan, has been on the show before with her Werewolf Whisperer series writing partner, Bonita Gutierrez.  But Camilla, being the creative soul that she is, and I’m guessing also a master at organization, has another writing partner with whom she’s been creating the world that houses another series, called Of Cats and Dragons. In fact, she and her dear friend, Carol Leever, her Of Cats and Dragons illustrator and co-writer, have been creating this world for over three decades now. But they didn't realize it right away. When Camilla and Carol did finally decide to share their creation with the world, life, as it does, stepped in with a twist that neither friend could ever ha

  • Ep. 50: Collaboration Series ft. Tina Cesa Ward & Rachael Hip-Flores

    08/08/2018 Duración: 37min

    I'm excited to be chatting with writer/director, Tina Cesa Ward and actor, Rachael Hip-Flores. These ladies first worked together in 2008 when Tina cast Rachael in her ground breaking web series, Anyone But Me. The show went on to win Indie Soap awards, a Clicker award for best drama, a Writers Guild Award for best Original New Media, and more. Rachael won a Streamy for her portrayal of series lead, Vivian. Clearly this was a pairing that worked! And it turned out to be the beginning of a long working relationship, and friendship.  Today the ladies talk about casting, from the perspective of both the actor and the director. They talk about what it takes to make a successful working relationship on set, and they share how they keep it fresh after years of working together. If you want to get some great insight, and have some laughs along the way, take a listen!

  • Ep. 49: Collaboration Series ft. Cynthia Graner and Jo Bozarth

    26/07/2018 Duración: 39min

    In this, the third installment of my special series on collaboration, I’m talking with someone with whom I’ve recently collaborated, my dear friend and producer extraordinaire, Cynthia Graner. Cynthia is an AFI alum who has produced commercials, branded content, feature films, short films, episodics…she’s basically done it all. Today, in addition to hearing how the work flow and other aspects of the working relationship between a producer and writer/director work, Cynthia talks about the various roles of different types of producers. Oh! And my role was that of the writer/director. A little background…Cynthia and I have worked together on projects before, but the particular project that we’re focusing on today was new territory for us because prior to this shoot, my role had been that of the actor. This time Cynthia produced a short film that I wrote and directed. So today we’re talking about that process, from writing the script to pre production to shooting the film…all of it.  This episode was a fun one fo

  • Ep. 48: Collaboration Series ft. Shelley Couvillion & Robin Puelma

    19/07/2018 Duración: 45min

    I’m chatting with author Robin Puelma and illustrator Shelley Couvillion for the second installment in my series on collaboration. Robin is a freelance blogger and the author of middle grade novels, The Missing Crimoire and The Naming of Colton Black. And Shelley is an illustrator who has had several solo shows, she’s illustrated comic books, and is now focusing on children’s book illustration…and that’s where our story begins. How do two artists of different genres come together to create something that stays true to both of their visions? Today, Shelley and Robin talk about the ins and outs of the relationship between an author and the artist who is illustrating her book covers.  And there are fun tidbits about the how to’s of their respective  careers woven in to our talk about collaboration. There's so much good info here, whether you’re an artist with representation or an artist who's out there doing it for yourself! Listen and be inspired, my friends!  Keep up with the pod: http://www.herprocess.com Con

  • Ep. 47: Collaboration Series ft. Camilla Ochlan & Bonita Gutierrez

    11/07/2018 Duración: 52min

    You’ve seen the hash tags #communityovercompetition and #collaborationovercompetition. Well, my guests today are giving those hash tags more than lip service…or tweet service?  Today I’m chatting with authors Camilla Ochlan and Bonita Gutierrez. If you’ve been listening to the show for a while, you’ll recognize their names from episode 21.  And if you’re a fan of urban fantasy, you probably know them from their series, The Werewolf Whisperer. In episode 21 the ladies talked about writing in a past and present timeline, character, publishing, and so much more. Today, they’re sharing what writing a series looks like when you’re part of a team. How do you get it all to flow when there are two creatives? What do they recommend looking for in a writing partner? How do they handle being business partners as well as writing partners? And if you are an artist, you know that these days, many creative industries have evolved so much so that artists basically have to be entrepreneurs, as well. There’s a lot of good stuf

  • Ep. 46.5 - Micro Pod ft. Recording Artist Drea

    22/02/2018 Duración: 17min

    Last week I promised a deep dive into the process of creating music. To be more specific, recording music. Recording artist and songwriter, Drea, is back with me to do just that. In the next fifteen minutes, you’ll hear about the recording of her last album, No Vacancy and how the process of recording her new music, including her latest release Hometown, is different. Part of it is that she’s in a different headspace, part of it is that she’s in more control of how she’s recording, and today she’s sharing that process with us. She talks about what happened in college, and beyond, that shattered her confidence as a singer and as a performer, and how she’s getting that confidence back. And she explains how accepting her deep love for music, and eventually committing to her music and dropping the extraneous stuff, and yes…that included a job, is affecting her career in the most positive ways. It’s all about taking that leap! Connect with host, Jo Bozarth, and keep up with the pod at: http://www.herprocess.com Fi

  • Ep. 46: Drea - Recording Artist, Songwriter

    15/02/2018 Duración: 40min

    Back in episode 22, today’s guest, recording artist and songwriter, Drea, opened up to me about her experience as a victim of sexual assault. Today I’m checking back in with Drea in what is probably one of the most empowering episodes I will ever record. In this episode, Drea talks about reclaiming ownership of her body, and who she is, through movement. And, she tells us how you can get in on this, too. We talk about the affect the assault has had on her art, and how music has helped her to fully process what happened. Which brings me to her latest single, Hometown, and the music she’s writing and recording currently. There’s definitely been a shift in her creative process, and we touch on it in this episode, and take a deep dive into in the next episode. And, stick around because Drea treats us to an absolutely beautiful performance of Hometown at the end of the show. Alright, let’s get to it. Here is my chat with the lovely and soulful, Drea.

    This episode of Her Process is for all of you artists out there for whom your art is not your day job. Maybe you’re waiting tables, personal training, substitute teaching…let’s just say your “fallback” job has become your main source of income. I’m welcoming back singer/songwriter Katie Ferrara. If you haven't heard Katie's episode where we talk a lot about busking, it's episode 19. Today’s focus is on how she’s made her music her full time gig. And the info, stories, and advice she shares in this episode could easily be utilized by illustrators, actors, writers, dancers…you name it. It’s for anyone who’s ready to take that leap.

    It's the Her Process micro pod! Think of this bonus episode as a little P.S. to episode 44 featuring painter, creator, Ela Mella. She touches on the parts of her world that you don't see on instagram. And, if you've been listening to the show, you know that the micro pod consists of twelve questions I ask all of my guests. One of the questions is whether or not they check out other artists of their discipline on social media. Ela gave the best answer, and reason, I've heard so far! Check it out!

  • Ep. 44: Ela Mella - Painter, Creator

    04/01/2018 Duración: 34min

    To introduce today’s artist, I’m going to take a description directly from her web site because it is just so perfect! Ela Mella is pun-loving painter and creator based in Los Angeles on a mission to spread love through art and unity through laughter. In this episode Ela opens up and shares where that positivity came from and how living through the lowest low can really change a girl’s perspective. We also talk about how LA, the city and the lifestyle, creeped into her east coast brain to create the art she’s known for today. And now, only a year after beginning this particular subject matter we’ll be discussing, she’s achieved her goal of having a collection, a style that’s all her own, which is so identifiable. She gives us the inside scoop on exactly how she creates her pieces, which are a fine art and digital hybrid. And listen up if you’re an illustrator who makes prints…Ela’s prints are absolutely gorgeous and so high quality and the color is so consistent, and she tells us how and where her prints are

    Welcome back to the Her Process micro pod! These bonus episodes consist of the same twelve questions I ask all of my guests, rapid fire style. It’s fun to hear how artists across different genres answer these questions sometimes very similarly, and sometimes not! Today I’m chatting with singer, songwriter, Dree Mon.

    21/12/2017 Duración: 43min

    I’m chatting with singer, songwriter, Dree Mon. Now, when you hear Dree Mon’s music it’s not what you typically think of when you hear the words “singer, songwriter”. Her style is described as “70s disco funk meets 90s R&B with a modern twist”. And her debut single Rebel Soul, along with the most fun video, is out now. And you can hear Rebel Soul end of this show! After eight years in the music business, it was time for a rebrand, and Dree was up for the challenge! In this episode we talk about working with a publicist, how you can't just create art and expect things to start to happen in your career, and the importance of consistency. There's a lot of good stuff here, and I can't wait for you to hear it and be inspired!

  • Ep. 42: Special Ep ft. Sandra Valde & Shelley Couvillion

    14/12/2017 Duración: 46min

    I’m wrapping up this special series with two artists whose specific intent is to remain as active as ever in their fields throughout motherhood…and they’re doing just that. Sandra Valde is a cinematographer whose work takes her on the road for up to three months at a time, and Shelley Couvillion is an illustrator who primarily works from home. In this episode, we discuss everything from full time daycare at 3 months old to the possibility of home schooling. From a work environment and artistic community that is extra supportive of motherhood to keeping pregnancy under wraps at work until month five. For all the differences in their experiences in early motherhood, there are also some very universal similarities. And, these ladies are both making it work. Want to know how? Take a listen!

  • Ep. 41: Special Ep ft. Lois Keller & Margaret Haas

    07/12/2017 Duración: 43min

    Welcome to the third installment of my special Her Process series on artists who are juggling the pursuit of art and parenthood! Today I’m talking with Lois Keller and Margaret Haas, two visual artists in two very different stages of motherhood. Lois is a fine artist with a background as a scenic artist. Her daughters are aged 10 and 14. Margaret is a calligrapher, does hand lettering, and owns a stationery store called Paper Pastries. (If you're in LA, you have to swing by!) Margaret's daughter is 20 months old. As you can see, today's conversation is coming from two very different vantage points. Three, if you count mine! As a mom-to-be, this chat really made me think. These ladies got real and talked about the part of motherhood and career that aren’t often talked about…the part where things don’t necessarily go the way you thought they might have, the part where you make adjustments, both in the way you approach your work and in your way of thinking. We decided that the theme for our talk is "surrender". 

  • Ep. 40: Special Ep ft. Kay Bess & Paula Rhodes

    30/11/2017 Duración: 44min

    The second episode in my special series on juggling art and motherhood features voice and screen actors, Paula Rhodes and Kay Bess. So inspiring! We talk about having a baby when you are already set in your career and in who you are, and when you like who you are, and what that does to your psyche and how to deal with that...and keep your career going! I'm so grateful to Paula and Kay for digging deep, and for being so open and honest. There's a lot of real talk here, along with lots of laughs.  Connect with host, Jo Bozarth on: Instagram: https://instagram.com/jobozarth Twitter: https://twitter.com/jobozarth Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thejobozarth                  https://www.facebook.com/HerProcess/ Find Kay Bess at: http://kaybess.com Find Paula Rhodes at: http://officialpaularhodes.com  

  • Ep. 39: Special Ep ft. Kathryn Michelle & Tanya Ihnen

    16/11/2017 Duración: 41min

    Welcome to the first episode of my special Her Process series on artists who are juggling the pursuit of art and parenthood.  Between the two of them, today's guests have spent the better part of a decade…maybe longer…acting, writing, producing, and directing short films, features, and web series. I’m so happy to welcome Kathryn Bergh and Tanya Ihnen.  In listening to this episode, I realized that while there’s great information and there are fun tales of art and motherhood, these gems apply to artists in general…not only moms, not only women even. That said, if you’re a mom, or thinking of becoming one, stick around, because you’ll want to hear this!  I’m super inspired by these ladies…and our conversation has me feeling a little less nervous about becoming a mama and staying the course with my art.
