Episode #25 Malcolm Dewey, impressionist landscape artist & art coach
Malcolm Dewey is a prolific impressionist landscape artist. But Malcolm didn’t start out as an artist - he started as a lawyer. Finding life in a law office unsatisfactory, he turned his attention once more to his art, and over the course of some time, he transitioned from full time lawyer to part-time to eventually leaving the legal world all together and putting all his time and focus into his art.
At one point, Malcolm opened an art gallery, and in the interview he gives us unique insight from the perspective of the gallery owner. Malcolm currently teaches online and in-person painting classes, and he put together an innovative art coaching program.
