Einstein once wrote “I have no special talents, I am just passionately curious.” Of course he had talents, we all do. The key to his success, he let curiosity guide him into unknown territory, no matter what the critics said. As artists, creatives, entrepreneurs, we can sometimes get lost in our own creative impulses (not to mention the opinions and judgements of others).
Observation, seeing yourself within your own creative process—be it spinning down a creative rabbit hole, sitting in stillness waiting for inspiration to arrive, or pushing through frustration to finish a project that no longer excites—supports the development and growth of your creative practice.
why its important to witness how you create?
Our inner witness is our greatest source of inspiration. Each artist has their own unique way of creating, and there own mental/emotional struggles too. By witnessing the magic of your own creative practice you develop a deeper relationship with your creative process as well as a deeper understanding of what creativity heals or unlocks within you. In moments when our vulnerabilities, doubts, and fears are triggered, our mind goes searching for proof that there is something wrong, that we are undeserving, and that we should maybe just give up.
Your future clients will also love to see the behind the scenes magic of the art they are investing in!
What is involved in an Artist Session?
During the session (3-4 hours) we spend time together connecting about your work as an artist. You will have an opportunity to reflect on the meaning art brings to your life and deeper questions of what inspires you. From here you will essentially begin creating as you normally do (feel free to try something new you have been meaning too, if you feel comfortable). As you create, I will be too.
By witnessing, through the lens, the way you create, I hope to capture some magic and mystery that maybe you aren’t consciously aware of. And perhaps- a new inspiration may be born. Between photos and filming, there will be moments to talk about creativity, healing, and the ways in which these aspects embody your work and how you put it out into the world. Photographs can be used to promote your work and tell the story of what makes your art unique.
