People tend to think of the artist as someone a little different from the rest of us; someone who sees things in a way that we cannot. True, those who create exceptional art often possess a rare ability to express what they see in their mind’s eye. However, I believe that everything we do is art.

The Oxford dictionary defines art as “the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination”.

Creativity is not limited to the visual or musical arts. Designing a website, starting a business, working on a project of any kind, choosing your wardrobe, caring for your family, decorating your home, planning an evening or a trip. These are all forms of expression. You started with nothing and created something.

Every action we take… how we go about each day… how we live our lives… is almost entirely by our design. If you choose to live with intention and grace, you are living an artful life.
