When the head of design at one of our brand’s artist network showcases turned to me and said “maybe one day you’ll be able to afford this art” I snapped into a cold reality. I thought back to the time when art was my identity. Afford art? I was creating it. After years of studying business and working as a management consultant I felt like I couldn’t be a credible artist and so my creativity became such a secret that not even my closest friends knew about it.
So I decided to start to surround myself with content that inspires me to create, share an important part of myself and hopefully inspire some people along the way.
Whether we are paid to do it or not, creative expression enables strangers to embrace sameness – to discover the silent connection between all of us.
If just one person is inspired to pick up a pencil and sketch this will all be worthwhile.
