Lately, I’ve been spending lots of time thinking and talking about creative habits. Over the past year or so, I’ve transformed my creative process through the power of a flexible daily routine built from habits that support my creative exploration, purpose, and well-being. Through a process of experimentation, I discovered there were certain activities that shifted my mindset, helped me feel in alignment, and generally built up my confidence.
After transforming my own relationship to creativity through the magic of routine, it was an easy decision to make habits the focus of my first online course. The creation of the course material and exercises has been a labour of love, and I can't wait to share them with you.
At the close of last year, I completed The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity, a book and self-study program developed by Julia Cameron in the 1990s. The course helped me reclaim my identity as an artist and return to my passions with new energy and confidence.
‘Work is self-expression. We must not think of self-expression as something we may do or something we may not do. Self-expression is inevitable. In your work, in the way you do your work and in the results of your work, your self is expressed.’ —Agnes Martin, Abstract Impressionist Painter
