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.

AN EVENING WITH LEVISON WOOD

AN EVENING WITH LEVISON WOOD

Levison Wood is a British writer, explorer and photographer. Last night, I ventured to the Hall for Cornwall – fighting against the ‘Beast from the East’ snowstorm, to experience an evening with Levison Wood and his good friend Alberto Caceres. Levison gave a talk about travel and why we put ourselves through the trials and tribulations of adventure. He shared video clips from his journeys around the world, and comical tales from his many encounters with the people he met along the way.

This means we are able to make conscious decisions in our everyday lives which will have a huge impact on the rest of the world.
