The Artist’s Journey

£10.99

When Kent Nerburn received a letter from a young woman questioning a life in the arts, the writer and artist was struck by how closely her questions mirrored the doubts and yearnings of his own youth. So Nerburn resolved that he would write his own letter: one of welcome and encouragement to all young artists setting out on the same strange and magical journey, sharing the wisdom of a life spent working in the arts. From struggles with money and the bitterness of rejection, to spiritual questions of inspiration and authenticity, ‘On Making Art & Being an Artist’ offers insight, solace and courage to help young artists on the winding road to creative fulfilment. Tender and joyous, it is a celebration of art’s power to transform the human experience.

Description

The creative life is not easy. From the outside it can seem romantic and exciting, but in fact it is a unique journey filled with doubts and dreams and complex challenges that most people never imagine. From the obvious issues of making a living and dealing with rejection, to more rarified questions like how to know when a work is finished and the delicate balance between inspiration and craft, the creative artist – whether writer, painter, actor, or dancer – lives in a world of profound questions and subtle choices.

The Artist’s Journey takes you into this world with an emotional honesty that few books offer. At once practical and spiritual, it is a rare exploration of the inner landscape of the artistic experience and an essential guidebook to the artist’s journey, for creative artists in all fields, whether young or old, accomplished or just beginning.
