Little gives me more pleasure than watching a client successfully attain a major goal.
In this podcast episode, I share the story of Lisa Kovvuri, with whom I worked in my Art Biz Inner Circle as she was starting her project, The Portrait Experience.
- How The Portrait Experience was conceived and executed at Whistler House Museum of Art.
- How she found people in her local community to sit for her.
- What she learned during the process.
- What’s next.
We also find out that most of the paintings have since sold.
It’s been a joy to watch Lisa's progress and the ultimate culmination of her efforts – the opening of her museum show.
I hope you are inspired by this conversation about how she accomplished her colossal goal.

Dannielle: I’ve been on a schedule of 1x a month. Hope you come back to listen to others.
I was excited to hear of Lisa Kovvuri’s Podcast because she paints the exact things that I paint only. It made me focus on the similarities and/or differences of Lisa’s craft which made me see how I am focusing on exactly what I wanted to paint in my portrait and figurative work. It made me see that what I wanted to focus on is falling right in the palm of hands, almost like magic or that the universe has been listening all along but I didn’t realize it. Thank you Alyson for creating this podcast.
LOVE this, Patrice: almost like magic or that the universe has been listening all along but I didn’t realize it.
Lisa, a BIG congratulations for tackling and delivering on this ambitious project – you’re an inspiration! Thank you, Alyson, for your podcast and reinforcing the discipline of writing and the power of becoming your own “word-smith”. Having the right words at the right time can’t be under-sold – it’s the magic confidence booster! I believe!
I’m super happy you have embraced this, Deb.
I really enjoyed this podcast with Lisa Kovvuri. Congratulations Lisa! Really nice work!
