This absorbing podcast pulls off the difficult feat of dealing with visual art in words. Maria asks exactly the right questions to keep it flowing, but gets the artists to do most of the talking. Generous length means thorough treatment, but it always feels packed with interest, never drags.

I came across ‘Talking with Painters’ about two weeks ago and have been binge listening during lockdown in my studio. Wonderful stories. Great advice. Fabulous to here from Australian artists, young and old. Fabulous!

Not just a fabulously entertaining podcast, every episode is a valuable art lesson. I’m on my third round of listening to the entire series while I work in the studio. If I ever take out a major art prize I am going to have to credit Maria and all of her artists.

I absolutely love listening to this podcast! I’m not a painter but just listening to the variety of methods, personalities, frailties... is so enlightening Thx Maria!

Really enjoying listening, paint brush in hand. Informative, human, calm. (Maybe a tad too much prize talk for my taste.) Would love some interviews with the unfamous, the striving amateur. Really enjoyed Ian fairweather-related interviews and Ann Thomson. Love that it’s not all blokes. 💚
locopocosisters via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/16/20
I enjoy listening to the stories and hearing about the art practices of the curious minds you interview. It’s intriguing how and why series of works comes together... or why a painting doesn’t work that matter. When working alone in the studio it’s a nice way to feel connected. Thank you.
JujuRoche via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/28/20
What a fantastic podcast, great questions by Maria and Luke Scribberas answers were so generous and intelligent in his knowledge and experience of his art and art in general. His passion is contagious. Thankyou for sharing

Talking With Painters is filled with useful tips for aspiring artists. It’s also amusing, sincere and unpretentious. A fascinating insight into the lives of Australian painters, how they began, the barriers, struggles and triumphs. It’s a gift. Thanks Maria.
