The tools are immaterial, the resulting piece is what's most important.

Saturday, August 7, 2010


Many people, when asked if they are creative, laugh and say 'Oh I can't draw, paint etc.' or 'I'm terrible at anything arty, I always have been'. But I believe everyone has creativity within them which can be demonstrated in a number of ways and which can enrich that person's life. Tapping into your own personal creative reserve can lead to a surge of activity and an empowering discovery of how your ideas and thoughts can be expressed.

Creativity is something we all have within us. It is part of human nature, and it clearly has some evolutionary advantage which is why we all have to ability to be creative. You will never lose your creativity, it is always within you, and even if you feel like you are not a creative person, just take a minute to really think about how you can express your creative side.

The most important thing about creativity is to never give up when it gets difficult, new skills can take time to learn, but the creative rewards far outweigh the struggle. The great thing about creative hobbies is that they are usually the most enjoyable.

It does not matter what your creative outlet is, maybe you have always wanted to draw, write, flower arrange, make pots, dance, photograph or cook.

So now, allow yourself to express these dreams and reap the benefits and energy from what is often an ignored part of yourself and life.

Draw? paint? Try painting and drawing with light !! Use your viewfinder as the canvas.
