There can be a perception (especially from non-artist friends and family!) that making art is more of a fun hobby than 'real' work. And certainly many artists struggle with feeling that wanting uninterrupted time and space for our art is self-indulgent, or even selfish.

Michele and Bec talk about the range of work required to generate and develop new creative ideas (it's not just in front of a canvas) and how we need mental, emotional and physical space to sustain a rich and satisfying art practice. Let's validate this important work for ourselves and each other, and claim the space we need!

Bec quotes Seth Godin from his book Linchpin
