Episode 4: Why you need to know what you create & why you do it!

Episode 4: Why you need to know what you create & why you do it!

Sometimes we just get carried away and jump into a new adventure head over heels. However in some cases - for example when it comes to starting a creative business - this approach is often a bit risky.

That's why I thought we should talk about what you need to know about your creative work before you jump into making it a creative business.

We'll talk about when you're just not ready yet and when it's time to take the leap into creative entrepreneurialism. And of course, we'll also address how you can deepen your insights even when you have already achieved some higher levels in your creative work and process.

Trello is an online program and app, that helps you store notes, links, photos and more.

Oh o, paint all over the studio!

Oh o, paint all over the studio!

Right now, I have paint all over my hands. I probably should have washed them before starting to type this post on my mac. But I just wanted to share what I am up to in the studio at this very moment.

The studio looks a little bananas, but I am so exited!

I'm testing out new color combinations, one of the most fun parts of creating my big newspaper artworks...

write about your creative work!

write about your creative work!

Back in art school I had a habit. Every night I took out a little journal and wrote down the thoughts I had about my art.

Things I wanted to try out, stuff I wanted to research, techniques I wanted to learn and thoughts about the artworks. Back then I didn't know how important this routine was for the growth of my art.

So I stopped doing this after I had my little boy. There was no time at night to do this and other tasks where piling up, so I made sure to at least work in the studio for a while every day.
