What hidden forces are at work when it comes to making art? Art is my passion, and I’m pretty sure it’s one of your top 3, too, so why do we often hold ourselves back from it and deny ourselves the pleasure? Why do we postpone it and make ourselves miserable for our lack of […]

Where are YOUR Creativity Gaps?
