Creating Your Art from Within

I’m often asked what it takes to be an artist. There are so many contributing factors. However, there is one that stands out above all the rest. Surprisingly, it is often the one that is overlooked the most. It is quite simple. It is you. It’s about looking inside yourself and remembering what lights you up. It’s so easy to get derailed by comparing yourself to others or giving in to limiting beliefs that hold you back. There are so many distractions along the way. However, paying more attention to what brings you alive is the key to moving your art and you forward.

Have a look here.

If you aren’t paying attention, you can miss the clues of what truly matters to you. A creative mindset cultivates discernment. It’s thinking about what you say yes to! This mindset will help you leverage your intuition in your art-making. Art2Life and the Creative Visionary Program (CVP) evolved from this powerful realization. The early weeks of CVP are devoted to this personal inquiry so that you can then embark upon making powerful, authentic art.

How do you tend to your creative mindset? Let me know in the comments.

Coming out this Wednesday on the Art2Life podcast, I am telling how I learned the importance of cultivating a creative mindset, which led to the small miracle that grew into Art2Life.

Check it out.
