Common threads evident in artists’ stories

Some common threads emerge over and over from our shared stories:

  • So many of us didn’t choose to make a living from our art when we were young. Our parents encouraged us to find more “stable, dependable” work.

Counter that with the common thread that many artists are willing to take that risk later in life when we have tired of the workplace and need to find something more personally rewarding.

Of course, there are artists who do manage a day job outside of the art world and also find time during their busy day for art. The secret they share is to work small. Or to parcel the work in little bits here and there and make them more manageable. In all cases, the suggestion is to enjoy the process and not worry so much about the outcome.

Join the group and share your story in 2021.

And so, as I begin a fourth year of highlighting and sharing the work of such a talented group of people from around the world, I encourage you to join the group whether you are a sculptor, a photographer, a jewellery maker, or an artisan, or creative of any type.

Contact me to receive an information letter with the explanations for joining this illustrious group of guest artists or simply if you have any questions. I will try to answer any concerns you might have.

Happy and healthy new year from my studio to you!
