The Number One Creativity Killer Is…

EGO.

Nothing kills, dampens. squashes and rips the guts out of creativity like this bad boy.

The artist who reaches us with his or her work has usually walked through a fire or two before their work finds its place in our hearts.

WHY?

Because heartbreak, pain, failure, death, divorce, bankruptcy and betrayal shatter ones perception that we can control everything that happens to us on planet earth.

These types of experiences (although terrible) keep our hearts open, raw and vulnerable.

THE ILLUSION OF EGO has been shattered, judgement cannot exist and control is no longer possible and finally we can express who we really are.
