Mentor Me // Edition 2


A Free Artist Resource: Edition 2

MentorMe is a free resource for creatives who wish to learn from their peers.

This Q&A resource will provide insights into how some of the most esteemed artists have made a name for themselves in an increasingly competitive market, how they make a business of being an artist, how they found their niche, intimate details of their practice etc. In each guide a different group of artists and photographers will share their insights, personal experiences and advice with creatives that wish to grow and evolve in their artistic practice.

Beautiful Bizarre Magazine mentors encourage, guide and inspire emerging artists as they explore their creativity, develop their technical skills and find their personal style.

Edition 2 Mentors:

Caia Koopman, Jim McKenzie, Kindra Nikole, Brian Viveros, Hannah Yata, Nicomi Nix Turner, Rodrigo Luff, Martin Wittfooth,  Derek Gores

In Edition 2 Beautiful Bizarre Magazine’s Mentors respond to the following questions:

  • Have you changed your initial artistic field/medium since you begun your artistic journey? Or have you remained true to your original medium and passion for what you wanted to create? If not, where has your artistic journey led you and why?
  • What obstacles have you encountered as an artist, and what were you able to do to overcome or navigate those to become stronger and more effective?
  • How did you find your personal style? When did you feel you have reached a place where your work was recognisable and you could continue confidently with the same work?

What readers are saying:

steve.eichenberger – I applaud you for what you’re doing with the MentorMe series! I think it will be more help than you’ll ever know, to artists all over the world. I am impressed with the level of honesty/transparency/vulnerability from the contributors. I think MM will help young artists feel validated, energized to summon the courage to follow their hearts…to value their own counsel over that of those around them. Passion is mighty fuel for purpose.
