“Reconnecting to Our Artistic Roots w/ Thalia Couture”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
With musician and artist Thalia Couture, we dive into the value of going back to the first things that inspired us to become artists. Sometimes where we end up isn’t where we started or first imagined ourselves going, but it’s all valuable experiences when you treat it thoughtfully.
POINT #1: “WHAT BROUGHT YOU HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE”
-We can often lose sight of why we begin our creative journeys and get lost in the daily race of progress only to realize we feel disconnected from what we’re doing. Sometimes going back to what inspired it all gets us back on track and clarifies our direction.
POINT #2: “CREATE IN OTHER WAYS”
-Finding a creative outlet that is different from what you pursue as a career and only for yourself is essential to keeping the well full and inspiration moving.
POINT #3: “PURGING OURSELVES”
-Our present lives have a way of making their way into our work whether we’re entirely conscious of it or not. One thing is for sure, don’t be surprised to look back on an old work to discover a depth of theme and emotion that you didn’t even realize you were creating at the time.
