Hello! Back again on the blog after a long period of work on the new book—MAKING ART A PRACTICE / How to Be the Artist You Are. It follows on from my first book, The Confident Creative / Drawing to Free the Hand and Mind, and offers 30 practices to connect with the creative Self that is at the core of all of us. So often, we question what art is, what it can do, where we fit as artists. In this book, we turn the inquiry inward—what moves us forward, what opens us up to our true creativity and allows us easy access to inspiration? How can we come to know ourselves and do what we’re here to do? How do we find creative freedom and work from the heart as well as the head?
The book contains inspirational art by 20 extraordinary artists from six countries including the U.S., the U.K., Italy, Spain, Belgium, France and Canada. The art is varied—illustration, collage, sculpture, fiber, painting and drawing. The book will be released August 1, 2013 and is published by Findhorn Press.
