Sparking Creativity - 083
Creativity is an innate ability in everyone. If you can think of an idea… even a bad one, you’re creative. Creativity is just finding an idea or solution that works by experimenting and playing... and professional Creativity is when you can turn these new and imaginative ideas into reality.
It takes practice to learn to consciously drop into specific brain states like creativity, and even more practice to learn to stay there... and even more practice to override your current mood, or feelings of doubt and fear.

Nancy guides artists to create their deepest, most authentic art through her signature approach, which combines art and psychiatry.
