Creativity is an attitude, a willingness to try new things or new ways of expression. It can be as simple as taking a different route to the grocery store, or trying a new way of organizing your desk or studio...Creativity is defined as "originality of thought or expression" --to facilitate the process one must research and experiment!

~Study other artists and their work
~Read about current events & history--be curious
~Research subjects that interest you
~Associate with fun & interesting people who are creative
~Meet people who are different from you
~Spend some time enjoying & appreciating nature
~Surround yourself with things of interest and/or a stimulating environment
~Learn about the art created by other artists-read art magazines and be aware of trends
~Draw every day!
~Have fun and keep your sense of humor!

This list has been garnered from various sources, and from experience...

I am a creature of habit, and I struggle to keep creativity alive...I tend to do more reading than doing--the hardest but most important thing is to practice and DO IT!


  1. Love your doll. She is her muse. Did you give her a name?

    Your thoughts on creativity are very good. I, too, seem to spend more time reading and looking than creating. Reading things like your blog are a reminder of what we need to do, daily, DRAW!


I really appreciate your comments. Leave me a note and Thanks for visiting!
