Who are your creative ancestors, and how can their stories influence your creative journey?
Your creative ancestors are those people who make you, you. They build you up and inform your creativity through the things they teach you, even from a distant past. Their legacies inspire you to share their stories with future generations through your art. They are part of what I call your Artist’s DNA.
Adri Norris’ successful “Women Behaving Badly” series was born out of a desire to share the stories of important women whose stories have largely gone untold. These works are a window into their truth, created to inspire today’s generation with role models they might not otherwise be exposed to.
Adri says of the project, “It was basically combining my love of learning with my love of drawing and painting faces and learning how to tell a story with my work.”
Listen in to hear Adri talk about how she infuses her work with the power of storytelling, as well as:
- How she’s using her mural work to inspire both the community and the next generation of artists
- How she’s proving that you don’t have to pick one area of art to work in as long as you’re clear on your core
- Her Artist Residency and the long-overdue surprise project she’s working on now.
Plus, she’ll share what her biggest challenges have taught her and the big shift that changed the way she views her work.
If you’ve ever wanted to dive deep into storytelling through your art but don’t know where to start, this episode is for you.
