“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known”.

I am keenly aware of the challenges that artists face. Especially when it comes to creating a series. Creating a cohesive body of work requires so much more than just putting brush to canvas or pencil to paper. Among other challenges,  it requires intention, focus, purpose and clarity.

In addition to actually creating the work (which is no small task) another essential component of this process is artists mind management.

This involves managing self-doubt, fear, procrastination, distractions and indecision.

I have discovered that artists also need additional support with perseverance, discipline, persistence, resilience, confidence, motivation, courage and self-esteem.

A good coach and mentor can be an invaluable partner in this process. A good coach and mentor can help artists navigate through the mental perils, as well as, the creative process en route to finding their true creative purpose.
