Here is a repost of the very first, The Creative Cookie, blog entry:
“Are you an artist?” is a question that I’ve been asked by some, but responded “no”
to until recently. A group of us were preparing to walk to a concert in
a nearby park, and a friend of a friend turned to me and asked that
infamous question and I said, “yes I am”. For years I’ve responded with an array of hesitant statements that ranged from “I like to play in clay” to “I am an artist supporter and I like design” to just plain “no”.
That August afternoon, I was able to respond in an affirmative way
because I've started being intentional about developing my talent to
live a life that's more creative.
I’d like to use the Creative
Cookie blog to explore deeper questions, such as “what does creativity
feel like”, to make a space for other unsure artists to emerge. This
blog also will serve as a diary of my creative journey. So, you’ll get
a glimpse of my artistic process and the adventures that I encounter
along the way.
