There were many commonalities I found among the creatives I interviewed during my 2010 cross-country U.S. trip. One was that my interview subjects all discovered their own creative side at a very early age. Fortunately for them–and for us–they held on to that creativity, and didn’t let the “I can’t” and “I don’t” forces of life turn them away from an art-committed life.
Two years ago I assembled a five-minute film (above) featuring eleven of those artists sharing their earliest memories of when they knew they were an artist. I’d like to ask you the same question. When did YOU know you were an artist?
