Being an artist

Whether you write, paint, draw, dance or play, the life of an artist is fantastic but not easy. As a writer and painter I know. The constant struggle between finding space to allow that tiny gem of an idea to grow and blossom and the demands of life, family, earning money and all the rest, can hamper the best creative idea.
I am privileged to be working with some amazing artists and creative thinkers and what breaks my heart is the turmoil and torture they feel in the process of producing new work. It's not the issue of the work, but rather the current structures and models that support the thought that if you make it you should be able to sell it and manage it. I don't agree with this and there are plenty of examples of artists throughout history that had teams around them, patronage and other support.
