This week's chat is with my dear friend, actress, April Bowlby. April and I met over a decade ago (wow, has it been that long?) in a scene study class. You might know her from her role as Alan's longtime girlfriend, Kandi, on Two and a Half Men. Or, you may recognize her as Stacy from six seasons of Drop Dead Diva. She's also starred in such films as From Prada to Nada, The Slammin' Salmon, and more. In this episode we talk about acting technique, and how auditioning for a part and actually playing the part on set are two different things entirely. April shares how she prepares for auditions. She lets us in on how she presents herself when she's in the room reading for producers, and how she faces challenges on set. We talk about what it's like for a trained, working actress to be in such a rapidly changing field. We also touch on the subject of typecasting. There's so much good stuff in this conversation, but what I want you guys to know is that April has brought life to characters (like Kandi) who could otherwise easily be dismissed as the beautiful airhead. She has made these characters interesting, and has given them hearts and souls. Yes, she's made us laugh, but she's also made us care for these characters. And that, my friends, takes smarts.

This week on Her Process, I'm chatting with community artist, Lois Keller. Lois's journey as an artist has taken her from working on backdrops for the Cincinnati Opera, to working on murals with kids, to writing and illustrating a book for her daughters, to working on a portrait series that you just have to see to believe! In this episode, Lois talks about the aforementioned portrait series, The Trader Joe's Feminist Bags. She touches on the importance of learning different artistic techniques so that you have the tools to express yourself, and the importance of creating your own space for making and finishing work. She talks about how her mom's battle with Alzheimer's affects her art, and how the roles of caregiver to her mom and her kids, have influenced and inspired pieces and projects. And, she tells us what it means to be a community artist. Talking with Lois reminded me of why I started making art in the first place, way back when I was a little girl. I did it because I loved it. Because something inside me needed to do it. Because the doing and the making of art made me happy. It isn't really about the end result, or even where the art ends up. It's all about the good that art can do, and it's about the process. Thank you for the reminder, Lois.

This week's micro podcast runs a little over ten minutes and features letterpress printer and calligrapher, Nariné Riley. Nariné answers twelve questions that pertain to artists of all disciplines. These are the same questions I ask each of my guests. It's fun to listen to how their answers are different, and not so different!  Want more?

This week's micro podcast runs a little over ten minutes and features actress and writer, Catrina Del Re. I ask Catrina twelve questions that pertain to artists of all disciplines. Think of this as a short and sweet P.S. to Catrina's full length episode from last week. Want more?

I'm so excited to be chatting with comedic actress, Mhairi Morrison. Mhairi, who incidentally, is Scottish/American, has worked extensively in mime, puppeteering, dance, clown, mask work, and has recently trained in performance capture. Talk about well rounded! Mhairi has been in the U.S. for several years now, but prior to coming to L.A., she trained and worked in the U.K. and in France. We talked a bit about the differences in training and working there vs. training and working here in the states. As an American actor, the differences blew me away and really made me start to fantasize about what a career in the arts would look like outside of the U.S. During our talk, Mhairi opened up about how she fell out of love with acting a few years ago. I know that a lot of you listening will be able to relate to her story. But don't worry, it has a happy ending! She shares how she fell back in love, and took charge of her career. And, how doing stand-up, and creating her own web series helped her reignite that passion. So much good stuff!

In this, the third installment of my special series on collaboration, I’m talking with someone with whom I’ve recently collaborated, my dear friend and producer extraordinaire, Cynthia Graner. Cynthia is an AFI alum who has produced commercials, branded content, feature films, short films, episodics…she’s basically done it all. Today, in addition to hearing how the work flow and other aspects of the working relationship between a producer and writer/director work, Cynthia talks about the various roles of different types of producers. Oh! And my role was that of the writer/director. A little background…Cynthia and I have worked together on projects before, but the particular project that we’re focusing on today was new territory for us because prior to this shoot, my role had been that of the actor. This time Cynthia produced a short film that I wrote and directed. So today we’re talking about that process, from writing the script to pre production to shooting the film…all of it.  This episode was a fun one for me. I swear that during every step this project, if my brain was the puzzle, her brain was the missing piece. If you’re thinking about mounting a production, you’ll want to give this chat a close listen.

Last week I promised a deep dive into the process of creating music. To be more specific, recording music. Recording artist and songwriter, Drea, is back with me to do just that. In the next fifteen minutes, you’ll hear about the recording of her last album, No Vacancy and how the process of recording her new music, including her latest release Hometown, is different. Part of it is that she’s in a different headspace, part of it is that she’s in more control of how she’s recording, and today she’s sharing that process with us. She talks about what happened in college, and beyond, that shattered her confidence as a singer and as a performer, and how she’s getting that confidence back. And she explains how accepting her deep love for music, and eventually committing to her music and dropping the extraneous stuff, and yes…that included a job, is affecting her career in the most positive ways. It’s all about taking that leap! Connect with host, Jo Bozarth, and keep up with the pod at: http://www.herprocess.com Find all things Drea at: http://www.dreaxmusic.com    
In the opening episode of the second year (what? year two!) of Her Process, I'm chatting with actor and writer, Catrina Del Re. From modeling to Method to Meisner, to finding her way to a class at The Imagined Life here in Los Angeles, Catrina shares with us this acting technique that is so different from any traditional technique that I've ever heard of! No rehearsal, no writing, and it's all about empathy. We talk about how, as we evolve as humans, and as technology is evolving, so too is the craft of acting. On the writing side, Catrina is working on a biopic that centers around an actor/director/producer who perished in a concentration camp. Her subject was a controversial person who has all but been written out of history. Catrina is determined to tell his story. She visited the camp with her husband, and shares with us some rather other worldly things that happened while they were there. I had so much fun chatting with Catrina, and I just know you're going to enjoy hearing what this talented, spiritual, beautiful person has to say about life and art. So, without further ado, here is Catrina Del Re.   Connect with Her Process and host, Jo Bozarth, on: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jobozarth/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/jobozarth Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/thejobozarth                  https://www.facebook.com/HerProcess/    
It's the Her Process Micro Pod, Episode 19.5! Think of it as a 15 minute P.S. to Episode 19 with singer/songwriter, and busker, Katie Ferrara. I ask Katie twelve questions that can be asked of any artist in any discipline. It's fun to see how my guests' answers differ, and how they don't! If you haven't heard Katie's Episode 19 yet, you can pop on over to herprocess.com for links to listen. You'll also see photos of Katie and fun facts you won't hear on the podcast. Just a tip...listen to Episode 19 all the way through to the end and you'll hear Katie perform her song, Jackets, live from my living room! And, I have to tell you, the sound on the recording is pretty great! Keep up with the show on Facebook: www.facebook.com/HerProcess Find me on Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter at jobozarth.
This week's micro podcast runs just over fourteen minutes and features singer, songwriter, pianist, Leila Milki. I ask Leila twelve questions that pertain to artists of all disciplines.

This episode features actress and author, Bonita Gutierrez. Think of this micro pod as a PS to episode 21. Bonita answers twelve questions that apply to artists of all disciplines. In this micro pod, which runs a little under nine minutes, Bonita will put a smile on your face. Her positive energy will reach out to you over the airwaves and make you just feel so happy to create! If you need a quick pick-me-up, this is the episode for you!   Keep up with Her Process on Twitter: @jobozarth Instagram: @jobozarth Facebook.com/HerProcess and Facebook.com/thejobozarth   Bonita's blog: http://bonitamg.tumblr.com/
This week's chat is with graphic designer, Victoria Vu, of Paper and Type. Before we dive in, I want to mention that Victoria has also had a career in architectural design. For today, we're talking about her life in graphic design, but I do think it will be of worth to the listener to know of Victoria's background in architecture. I believe that these two fields require both creative work and precision work, and people who's brains naturally function in both of those planes, in my opinion, are so interesting. You can clearly hear both influences in the conversation! In this episode, Victoria tells us about her first taste of the graphic design business at the age of seven. She shares the events surrounding her transition from architectural design to graphic design. And, she walks us through the process of operating her own petite graphic design company. For photos and fun facts about Victoria, show notes, and links to where you can find Victoria online, pop on over to herprocess.com.

This episode of Her Process is for all of you artists out there for whom your art is not your day job. Maybe you’re waiting tables, personal training, substitute teaching…let’s just say your “fallback” job has become your main source of income. I’m welcoming back singer/songwriter Katie Ferrara. If you haven't heard Katie's episode where we talk a lot about busking, it's episode 19. Today’s focus is on how she’s made her music her full time gig. And the info, stories, and advice she shares in this episode could easily be utilized by illustrators, actors, writers, dancers…you name it. It’s for anyone who’s ready to take that leap. If that’s you, and you need that kick in the pants to get things moving, keep listening! Here is my chat with Katie Ferrara.

Welcome to the third installment of my special Her Process series on artists who are juggling the pursuit of art and parenthood! Today I’m talking with Lois Keller and Margaret Haas, two visual artists in two very different stages of motherhood. Lois is a fine artist with a background as a scenic artist. Her daughters are aged 10 and 14. Margaret is a calligrapher, does hand lettering, and owns a stationery store called Paper Pastries. (If you're in LA, you have to swing by!) Margaret's daughter is 20 months old. As you can see, today's conversation is coming from two very different vantage points. Three, if you count mine! As a mom-to-be, this chat really made me think. These ladies got real and talked about the part of motherhood and career that aren’t often talked about…the part where things don’t necessarily go the way you thought they might have, the part where you make adjustments, both in the way you approach your work and in your way of thinking. We decided that the theme for our talk is "surrender". Take a listen, and you'll hear why.

The second episode in my special series on juggling art and motherhood features voice and screen actors, Paula Rhodes and Kay Bess. So inspiring! We talk about having a baby when you are already set in your career and in who you are, and when you like who you are, and what that does to your psyche and how to deal with that...and keep your career going! I'm so grateful to Paula and Kay for digging deep, and for being so open and honest. There's a lot of real talk here, along with lots of laughs.  Connect with host, Jo Bozarth on: Instagram: https://instagram.com/jobozarth Twitter: https://twitter.com/jobozarth Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thejobozarth                  https://www.facebook.com/HerProcess/ Find Kay Bess at: http://kaybess.com Find Paula Rhodes at: http://officialpaularhodes.com  
Today’s show wraps up my series on collaboration. It’s a tribute to art and to friendship. It’s about what happens when you’re on a roll, when you’re making strides, realizing your dream…and the unthinkable happens. What do you do? How do you go on? Do you go on? If you’re just joining Her Process for the first time, today’s guest, Camilla Ochlan, has been on the show before with her Werewolf Whisperer series writing partner, Bonita Gutierrez.  But Camilla, being the creative soul that she is, and I’m guessing also a master at organization, has another writing partner with whom she’s been creating the world that houses another series, called Of Cats and Dragons. In fact, she and her dear friend, Carol Leever, her Of Cats and Dragons illustrator and co-writer, have been creating this world for over three decades now. But they didn't realize it right away. When Camilla and Carol did finally decide to share their creation with the world, life, as it does, stepped in with a twist that neither friend could ever have imagined or prepared for. You always hear people say that they meant to do x, y, z, but "life got in the way." Well, these ladies didn't let "life" thwart their plans. They've bobbed and weaved, and have persevered. This is their story.  Keep up with the pod: http://www.herprocess.com Visit the world Of Cats and Dragons: http://ofcatsanddragons.com  
As artists, we can all agree that whatever we’re passionate about in life influences our work. It’s what our art is based on, really. Today's guest's story illustrates this point beautifully. I'm delighted to be chatting with singer, songwriter, Shelley Segal. Now, a lot of us are taught not to talk about religion or politics in polite company. Well, one of those topics comes up in today’s episode. And I’m going to say a word now, that I’ll admit, as someone who was raised in the Christian faith, has always made me a little uncomfortable. The word is Atheism. My guest today, has been called the “pin-up girl for the Atheist movement”. And I have to tell you, that her genuine caring for all people, just the love for humanity you can feel when you’re talking with her...well, I don't know what I expected exactly, or was taught to believe about Atheists. I will tell you that what I see in Shelley is the kind of person I hope I am.  Raised in a Jewish family, Shelley opens up about questioning certain beliefs, the journey to finding answers that resonated with her as a human being, and how these answers lead her to secularism. She shares how her search, and ultimately the community that she found, helped shape her music…well, a good chunk of it anyway. There’s so much more to her story, and so much more to her art. During our chat, we also discuss how her career took shape, and the different genres which have influenced her many sounds. And, she explains Patreon to me, and why she and her fans love the Patreon experience she is able to create for them. In opening up about her journey, Shelley illustrates a bit of her story through song. And oh, what songs she chose. You’ll just have to hear for yourself. For photos and fun facts about Shelley that aren't mentioned on the show, pop on over to www.herprocess.com Connect with Her Process and host, Jo Bozarth: Instagram: https://instagram.com/jobozarth/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/jobozarth Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thejobozarth                 https://www.facebook.com/HerProcess/  
In this Her Process I have the pleasure of chatting with Sarah Momo Romero. I’m catching Sarah as she’s about to become a published author and illustrator! Her children’s book, Wake Up, Little Bat is due out this fall. And you know I’ll be asking her to come back and share that whole experience with us!   Today, Sarah shares how she got her first book published. It’s a process she highly recommends! She also gives us her secret weapon to combat that creative lull. This one may surprise you! And she talks about finding her own illustrative style for drawing people. Sarah is so open and so generous in sharing about her creative path…she really makes you feel like you can do this, too. So if you’re ready for some real motivation and tips you can use, listen up! Here is my chat with author/illustrator, Sarah Momo Romero.

Welcome back to the Her Process micro pod! These bonus episodes consist of the same twelve questions I ask all of my guests, rapid fire style. It’s fun to hear how artists across different genres answer these questions sometimes very similarly, and sometimes not! Today I’m chatting with singer, songwriter, Dree Mon.

Today I’m chatting with the Hoopie Awards 2017 Hooper of the Year, USA, Morgan Jenkins. Morgan gave me a quick hooping lesson before recording this episode, and it really got my blood pumping! I totally understand why hooping is called a movement meditation. During the show, Morgan explains exactly what that means, and she talks about ambient hooping as part of the flow arts. It's so refreshing to talk to an artist who is all about being inclusive. Morgan is part of a hoop troupe called Hooptown Hotties, and their motto is “you can hoop with us.” Don't you just love that? Using her background as a camera assistant in the TV and film industry, Morgan and the Hooptown Hotties make amazing hooping videos. She shares a bit about the ladies’ video making process, choreography, and creative motivation. …And she tells us the route she recommends for learning hooping. We also talk social media, and how Morgan, aka Miss Mojangles, has utilized it to further her hooping career, while remaining true to herself, even online. I had so much fun talking with Morgan, and yes…now I totally want to pick up a hula hoop and go for it! And after listening to this episode, you will too! So without further ado, here is Miss Mojangles herself, Morgan Jenkins.

It’s the Her Process Bonus Episode! This edition features comic book artist and author, Yumi Sakugawa. Just after recording episode 36, I asked Yumi to stick around and answer twelve questions that pertain to artists of all disciplines. Her answers were so unique and awesome that at some points, I actually had to force myself to move on and not dive into those answers. I mean, it’s a 5 minute micro-pod after all! For photos and fun facts about Yumi that aren't mentioned on the show, pop on over to www.herprocess.com and look for episode 36.

It's the Her Process Bonus Episode! Today I’m chatting with actor, writer, producer, and director, Kathryn Michelle. She’s back again this week to answer twelve questions that I ask of all my guests, regardless of what kind of art they practice. And since she is such a multifaceted artist, I’m betting a lot of us can identify with what she has to say. Want Kathryn’s backstory and to hear how this working mom gets it all done? Check her out on episode 24. And now, here’s my ten-ish minute chat with Kathryn Michelle.

Today I’m chatting with milliner, Shurie Southcott. We start our conversation by discussing the history and the importance of hats through the decades, and we ponder how and when they fell out of fashion in most of the US (with the exception of the south), and Shurie tells us how she’s doing her part to usher hat wearing and the hat experience, and everything it represents, back into fashion. She tells us how she became a milliner, where she gets her inspiration, and lets us in on what goes into the making of hats as far as the process, the fabrics and materials she uses, the different styles, how she charges for her art…and so much more! And she gives tips on how you can ease into becoming a hat person! And maybe even a hat maker! See photos of Shurie's workspace, creations, get links to her website, and more over at www.herprocess.com!
