There are a lot of creative types in this world. Many people can assemble a kit. Most can complete a class project. Some even have the ability to alter those ideas and give them a personal twist.
And then there are those who just create from a random thought or an idea. They are connected with their muse. But what is it that makes one an artist? I honestly think it's simple. It's not skill and talent (though that helps). It's not selling your work or showing in galleries.
It's heart. Creating with heart. All you need is the heart of an artist.
Between your heart and head.
Both are tied-
By a creative thread.
