My name is Michelle Aldredge, and I’m the creator of Gwarlingo. I’ve spent 15+ years helping thousands of successful artists of all disciplines, and I’m a working artist myself. Gwarlingo is the best place to read in-depth conversations with artists and to learn about contemporary visual art, music, writing, film, performance, and design. What is Gwarlingo?
  • A thoughtfully curated journal of contemporary art that combines all art forms & dispenses with unnecessary jargon
  • A place for readers to get experienced advice about process, business, & the challenges of the creative life
  • (And literally…) A Welsh word for the rushing sound a grandfather clock makes before it strikes
