The Creative Process

The “Creative Process” like creativity itself, cannot be hemmed in, pigeon-holed or limited to any one simple defintion or cookbook recipe. 

Techniques are but a function of one persons representation of creativity, and as a picture of a picture continues to distort the original image, so do techniques veneered over an unchanged or unknown self, lessen the creative force and expression of the individual beneath.

Painting by the numbers, like rote memorization and standardized testing, are a phenomena of the control that the “powers-that-be” employ to appease their constituency and to insert their current agenda into the consciousness of those they so ardently profess to serve.

Only an Artist with a heart and soul for the soul and hearts of the artists in others, can possibly foster an environment of creativity with the liberty necessary for both the growth individual and ultimately the collective.”
