This week I talk with Melbourne-based contemporary artist, Steaphan Paton, about artistic integrity, resourcefulness, unpacking your money story, and living on $8,000 a year.
This episode is a really special one to me. What started out as a conversation about the nuts and bolts of what it looks like financially to be a contemporary artist with a scarily impressive cv, turned into a conversation about where our ideas about money come from, and how artistic integrity plays into that. The conversation really got me questioning my own views about money, community, and SHAME, and if I didn’t have so many fears about airing my own money laundry publicly, I’d be really keen to listen to it.

If it’s made you feel less alone, less afraid, more okay, if it’s meaningful to you, or if you hate the show, hate me, but really get off on making ppl you despise really happy as they enter the strange and unfamiliar land of No Longer Being Able To Feasibly Call Themselves Mid-Twenties, please consider supporting me on Patreon.
