109 - Dancing, Teaching & Doodling with Michelle Johnson


Hello and welcome to the The Spark & The Art creativity podcast. Thank you for subscribing to our weekly podcast, where we alternate between interviews with creative folks from all different career levels and insight and inspiration episodes. All with the intention you’ll get what you need to get your creative projects started and, more importantly, finished.

I’m your host Tucker and this week is an interview with dancer, teacher and bloom doodler Michelle Johnson. 

We talk through how dance has been part of her life since pretty much the beginning and the importance teaching has played in her life. We also talk about how she used drawing to help her through a difficult time while recuperating from a difficult surgery. And how through that drawing and sharing of her images with her friends it lead to her creating and self-publishing a colouring book. Even though, as she says, there are lots of similar books out there she could have used that as an excuse to not follow through with her project, prahject, project she went the other way and used it as a reason to complete it. And with the reception she’s been getting it’s a fantastic thing that she did finish the book. 

So here is today’s chat with Michelle Johnson.

If today’s chat made you think of someone you know it would be great if you could share it with them. The easiest way is to share the short url TheSparkAndTheArt.com/109. The hardest way is to learn crochet and transcribe the episode into a series of doilies and invite that friend over for tea and hope that they read the fibre craft you’ve laid out on the table. 

I’m always on twitter @sparkartpodcast or if you feel like leaving a question on the toll free number to be answered in a future episode feel free to leave a voice message at 1-877-966-4886. I also accept jokes, drink recipes and animal impressions there. 

Thanks for listening and remember: you won’t get the art without the work and you won’t do the work without the spark.
