HOW TO SUSTAIN CURIOSITY, INSPIRATION AND MOTIVATION AS AN ARTIST

HOW TO SUSTAIN CURIOSITY, INSPIRATION AND MOTIVATION AS AN ARTIST

Starting a creative art business is hard. I’m sure starting any business is tougher than people expect. Staying curious, inspired and motivated is essential to keep moving forward.

Combining a love of creativity with wanting to share awareness of animal and wildlife rescue worldwide, drives me on. But there have been times when I have felt so challenged.

Hours of energy and devotion go in, with no guaranteed results. The building blocks take time. Sometimes things flow, other times it’s a struggle. And creating can be a lonely process, unless you are surrounded by a creative community.

ANIMAL COMPANIONS

ANIMAL COMPANIONS

Wherever we live, our neighbour’s cats seem to visit us regularly. In our last home, we had two beautiful cats stay over - Faddy and Ember. In our new home, a lovely black and white cat is always knocking on the door! Quite literally.

Some people think all animals are the same - their behaviour mimics the other. But this is far from the truth. They all have their own unique personalities. Ember would give the most epic cuddles, but when she waited by the window to be let out - she'd swipe a paw at you and growl. We needed to use chopsticks as an extension of our hands - to open the window, so not to get scratched. You could say that Ember had her ups and downs.
