The Importance of Maintaining a Personal Creative Discipline for Creative Leaders

Why Continuing to Create is Essential for Staying Connected to Your Passion and Avoiding Burnout

As creative leaders, it’s not uncommon to find ourselves drifting away from the tools we once loved and instead focusing more on managing others or running a business.

Finding Art in Small Packages


As an artist, I’ve always been drawn to the idea of creating something beautiful out of small or unexpected materials. That’s why I was so excited when I rediscovered the micropoetry I had written on the back of a server. In my daily life, I find myself constantly inspired by the world around me, and I often jot down my thoughts in short, poetic form. These micropoems, as I like to call them, are small and simple but full of meaning.

Celebrating Imperfection: Embracing the Beauty of Old Technology and Chance in Art

Finding Poetry in Imperfection and Discovering the Wabi-Sabi Philosophy in Modern Art

As a creative, I’ve always been drawn to old technology. There’s something about the limitations of old cameras, typewriters, and super 8mm film cine-cameras that appeals to me. Perhaps it’s the unpredictability of the results or the imperfections in the process that make it so alluring. I find the polished and perfect to be untrustworthy and even disturbing. Instead, I’m drawn to the texture and poetry of imperfection as a parallel to life itself.

Embracing Kintsugi

Finding Beauty in Imperfection

As a creative individual, I am always looking for new ways to express myself through my art. Recently, I came across the Japanese art of Kintsugi, which involves repairing broken pottery using gold or other precious metals, turning flaws and imperfections into something beautiful. This art form resonated with me deeply, not only because of its visual appeal but also because of its metaphorical meaning. The idea of embracing and highlighting imperfection as part of the story of an object or person is something that I find incredibly powerful. I started exploring this concept as an extension of my creative practice, but I soon realized that it had a much deeper personal significance to me.

Uncovering the Mythologies of the Ancient British Peoples

Rediscovering Our True History Amidst the Supremacy of Greek and Roman Mythologies

As an artist, I’m always looking for inspiration and new ideas to incorporate into my practice. Recently, I’ve been drawn to the idea of exploring my ancient British cultural heritage and using it as a reference for my art. As a descendant of the Picts and Celts of Great Britain, I’ve become acutely aware of how our culture has been falsely associated with Greek and Roman mythology, which has resulted in the erasure of our true history, including our rich but mostly lost mythologies and stories. However, by delving deeper into the wildness and magic of our ancient British past, I believe I can unlock a new source of inspiration and create art that truly reflects my cultural heritage.

Using Web Design Principles to Create User-Friendly Recipes for the Modern Kitchen

As a designer who has spent years working on web accessibility, I’ve learned the importance of making information easy to read and follow.
