Why do you create art?

Artists are often asked why do they create Art and for me it is a lovely way to document places I have been, things I see in my local area and when travelling and a great way to have fun and make something enjoyable. Hopefully others will enjoy it too. I like to make art that makes you smile!

It is good to listen to other artists talk about their art and why they create. Recently I found the stunning work of Scottish artist Blythe Scott and watched a short YouTube  with her talking about her work and why and how she does what she does.

I also like to check out English artist Alan Furneaux as he has a regularly updated blog featuring little clips about his work.

Another terrific artist I like is Timo from New Zealand and you can see his amazing paintings on ‘Colour in your life’.

What drives you to create art?
