" Learn how you want to work. Learn how other artists work. Learn about artists that work in your discipline. Learn techniques that interest you, this will allow you to become more creative when you aren’t concerned with the fundamentals of process. Also, put yourself out there, call yourself an artist, tell people what you are doing and where you want to be. Your community wants to support more than you know. In the words of Dr. Franke-N-Furter, “Don’t dream it, Be it.”"
One of the things that makes art, well…. ‘art’ is that it is impossible to define. Art can be created through traditional means, like the stroke of a brush on paper, or it can come from more untraditional practices such as crystallizing alcohol and photographing the resulting patterns. But food? Can food really be artistic?
There is a common misunderstanding that science and art are separate. People are often drawn to one or the other, labelled as ‘right brained’ or ‘left brained’, but there are some of us who are attracted to both in equal measure.
