I have also been researching where I want to go next with my life, I have become disillusioned with the art world and got fed up of trying to promote myself and 'make it' within the art scene. Not anyone's fault, I just don't like having to promote myself.
So after a summer of soul searching and reading and walking, I realised that I love creativity more than I love fine art. I enjoy the actual making, but really not that concerned with the piece after that. I don't know how to value my work in monetary terms, because money isn't a priority in my life, even though I do need it for bills, food etc....
This led to me deciding to enrol on a Mindfulness and Life Coaching course, I want to combine this knowledge with creativity and work with other people exploring how creativity can be used for positive purposes. So from being fairly disillusioned, I am now boinging with energy and excitement over the future and what it will bring. I'm not giving up my own artwork, but will be making purely for the pleasure of making without having the pressure of selling and promoting myself.
