Why is it that many of us feel uncomfortable thinking of ourselves as artists, or even as creative?  How many creative urges lay dormant because we think we don’t have what it takes to be an artist?  What I’ve discovered since I’ve dared to think of myself as an artist is that I access my creative energy more often and feel more confident in new creative endeavors.  I’m more receptive to inspiration and find it everywhere.

At those times when I feel insecure I remind myself of the joy this creative exploration brings into my life, and that is really what it’s all about for me: finding joy and fulfillment in being an artist of the everyday – being the artist of my life.

The creative is a place where no one else has
ever been.  You have to leave the city of your
comfort and go into the wilderness of your
intuition. What you’ll discover will be
wonderful.  What you’ll discover
is yourself.
