Art, Barf, and Mermaiding (Episode 147)

Teanna ByertsTeanna Byerts wants you to know that adventure is out there — You just need some imagination! Byerts is an artist, writer, photographer, kayaker, horseman, and mermaid. She nerds out about science, science fiction, fantasy, superheroes, animation, and weird, early lifeforms. She has paddled in the wake of dolphins, trained actual wild mustangs, and lived with a small pride of mini panthers. She believes that storytellers and artists should inspire and educate and very much lives up to that objective. In this friendly, artist-to-artist conversation with co-host Wendy Sheridan, Teanna Byerts shares about some of her great experiences with painting and working in environmental education art, wildlife rehabilitation, publishing, and the joy and skill of mermaiding.

Just before the featured interview, co-host Robin Renée interviews Wendy in The Artscape about her explorations in finding a signature style, her art and design work for the new Flick Liver album cover, her upcoming shows, and more. In All the News We Can HandleLaphonza Butler will fill the U.S. Senate seat that was held by Dianne Feinstein, increased availability of abortion pills for New York City residents, Trump’s legal calendar, NJ Senator Bob Menedez’ issues, Taylor Swift’s voter registration impact, and  rhino rebound. In This Fortnight I Learned, Wendy learned about hemorrhoids and Robin learned about blimps.
