making time to create without fear

spend a little time in your creative space everyday in february. Often we place so much pressure on ourselves to create something great that we fail to even try. We tie our own hands behind our backs. The trick is to create something everyday or spend time in your creative process everyday. I am totally guilty of doing this. Letting daily life get in the way and not carving out time to spend in my own creativity. Then my life and my art becomes stale and stagnant. This month I am going to spend anywhere from 10min-one hour in my creative space and create something each day in February. Some will be great. Some will be horrible. Some will be light and pretty. Some dark and disturbing. I will learn and grow from it all. I invite you to join me. Make the commitment to yourself. Take the challenge!...

Personal work: by Jodi Collins Photographer located in Portland Oregon

Personal work serves many purposes for artists. It is art that we make only for ourselves with no one else’s agenda in mind, it is our vision, our dreams, our terror & fears etc pored out into a piece of art. For me it is an outlet. A means to an end. A form of healing and expressing what lays deep within my soul.   I am looking for models for my personal work for the coming year. If you are interested or know someone who is send me an email or TXT. I am looking for all age groups and people from all walks of life. Forward this link to anyone you think may be a good candidate or just simply share it. Thanks! ¬†~Jodi   Jodiabcollins@gmail.com 503-293-4186 call or...
