Hello hello! I’m going to keep it brief this month because my head is a beehive and I’m struggling to write anything coherent.
This month in the Studio Vlog I talk about the breakthrough mindset shift that happened last year in my creative practice. Turns out laziness was never my problem (and it’s probably not yours either)!!! I was expecting too much out of myself and putting all sorts of pressure on my art to be “good” and “meaningful”. This made me blocked and frustrated.
Instead, I shifted my mindset and started thinking of my art practice as a safe space for big, messy emotions. A space for experiments and mistakes and aimlessness.
I lessened the stakes, stopped worrying about the big-picture plan, and just started making marks on the page.
It sounds so simple when I write it down, but this is something that took 10 years of struggling, a year of therapy, and twice reading through The Artist's Way 🤭 to figure out! Wow! Ok thank you for reading, here’s the vlog.
Until next month,
