If you’re stuck in a rut and looking for some encouraging advice, you’ve come to the right place. Here are some thought-provoking, and hopefully creatively inspiring, points that have been made by some of our favourite artists.

Pablo Picasso

Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.

Berthe Morisot

It is important to express oneself… provided the feelings are real and are taken from your own experience.

Vincent van Gogh

If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.

Donatella Versace

Creativity comes from a conflict of ideas.

Marc Chagall

Great art picks up where nature ends.

Salvador Dali

Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.

Laurel Burch

Close your eyes and dream a dream… and seek the courage to make it real. Reflect on the past, envision the future and embrace today with passion.

Andy Warhol

Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.
