Creating is like travel. You have to step outside your comfort zone to experience the extraordinary.

#21 – Artists are Grand Explorers. But instead of discovering new worlds, artists discover new ways of seeing the world.

The Artist Mind is never afraid of exploring uncharted territory. I enjoy challenging my perceptions and pushing the limits of my talent or my materials rather than creating the same thing day after day. I’m not afraid of trying something new, but I do not choose irresponsibly.

Stepping into the studio is like embarking on a voyage of discovery. There’s the thrill of the unknown as I leave behind my comfortable surroundings to experience new sights and discover perspectives that challenge my own. It makes me feel alive, connected, tuned in with the world. Just like travel. Oh, the places you’ll go!
