I have come to the conclusion that Life and Art are so closely intertwined as to be inseparable.

The more I teach art and participate in the development of my own creativity, the deeper my understanding of this becomes.

Although many people don’t realize it, participating in any form of creativity whatsoever – is ALWAYS an act of self development.  Perhaps this is why we find so many people refusing to acknowledge their creative potential and denying themselves through that oft repeated phrase;

“But I have no talent!” I refuse to accept this and challenge everyone to examine that statement by asking the question – “Is that true?”

We all have talents of some kind which are often dismissed.  The ability to draw a smile to someones lips or make people laugh are talents.

What is your greatest talent?
