An Artist Manifesto

"The Artist never knows . We guess. We maybe wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark ~Agnes De Mille


 ARTIST MANIFESTO

An Artist Is one when he/she says so

An Artist is a truth teller

An Artist does not have to be trained but is never really self taught. 

An Artist must "show up" and practice making art

An Artist doesn't have to know what direction they are going in.

An Artist must do his/her own work only taking from others to understand themselves more 

An Artist must never stop exploring, experimenting and expanding his/her work

An Artist must have quiet time, solitude is crucial to nurturing the creative soul.

An Artist is a conduit, a channel for creative energy which is divine.

 THOUGHTS ON CREATIVITY

We are all creative beings

The Creative process and energy can be healing and spiritual in nature.

The Creative process is a metaphor for life

The Creative process allows me to practice being a channel for spiritual guidance 

Creativity is flows when driven by curiosity

Creativity allows you to discover yourself, this is not easy work but well with it

Above all, honor the process not the product
