This is one of those subjects that is hard to write about without sounding incredibly pretentious. Lucky for me, most people find me impossibly pretentious which means I can take on this topic like I would any other. As a full-time artist, having a creative practice ends up being an entire lifestyle. Everything in my life is built around creativity. It effects when I sleep, how I schedule my life, and how I spend my time. For many artists there are plenty of other commitments besides just being creative. That’s where having a creative practice is helpful. Creativity isn’t something to be chased, it must be fostered.
