Nicholas Heilig is a festival touring live-painter who has been steadily gaining popularity as he works tirelessly to improve his skills. We talk about finding the balance between the New Age woo-woo and healthy skepticism, advice for budding artists who want to make a career of their creativity, and how to not be duped by the myriad political divisions of the world. Nicholas is a great guy with a grounded but open minded way of viewing the world and I know you'll love this chat!
Denver friends, don't miss Heilig's Juicy Art Market Event on June 1st!
