Connecting your Art to your Life

There’s an old shipyard near my studio. It’s a place where I find beautiful patinaed colors and shapes amongst all the worn and broken pieces of boats. What’s so cool is that these things relate to my art. Going here strengthens this connection and gives me inspiration for my art.

Here is what I mean.

Your art practice can have a life of its own but connecting it to your daily life is powerful. The feelings in your art can be reflected by the music you choose and the people and experiences in your day. This connection of art and life generates momentum and creates potency in your art.

How do you bring your life into your art? Let me know in the comments.

In this week’s podcast, I have a conversation with artist Jonah Allen. Whose life and art are fully connected to the sea. His world is surfing, photographing, and exploring dark and light wave patterns.
