The Unlikely Artist

The Unlikely Artist podcast is my way of giving back to you. Join me every Tuesday for real coaching and advice that will help you think more expansively about what’s possible for you, overcome your emotional roadblocks, and move your life more solidly in a direction that feels authentic to who you are.

My task in each episode is simple – to deliver my very best insights about life to you. I affectionately call you all “my Savvy Souls” because when I record my sessions, it’s like each one of you is there, across the table from me as we drink our coffees and chat. I imagine you as an intelligent, curious, accomplished, soul-searching, creative and passionate human being.

My wish is that you will tune into each episode and feel fully heard, understood and accepted as you are. You, Savvy Soul, are a treasured client. Welcome to my podcast. Write to me anytime with your suggestions or questions: heather@gracedcanvas.com.

Our encounters don’t need to be big or grand to make a difference to the people we meet. Short encounters can have our hearts singing for days. In this episode, I share what I learned from my encounters last week with 5 strangers on a beach in Santa Monica, California. I start with the story...

You and I have something in common. Neither one of us is perfect. Yet, we act as though we should be. We keep expecting perfection from ourselves.

This episode will change your relationship to ease. Too many of us put “working hard” up on the alter, It becomes our religion. Ease simply isn’t part of the process we imagine we need to achieve our goals. This is a mistake. Racking up the time and working harder – these are NOT the best...

It doesn’t serve us to push down our negative emotions. Sadness, pain, grief, doubt, frustration are all part of our full human experience. These feelings can be beautiful in their own right.

In this episode, you’ll learn one way of creating peak experiences – experiences where you feel intensely connected to life, you forget your troubles, and your sense of time, space and self collapse. Don’t get trapped by your routines. In this episode I show you why it’s important to walk around a new “corner” and...
You’ll find this episode helpful if you find yourself pushing away your desires because you’re convinced they’re not possible to achieve.
