An idea can come from anywhere, at any time. We speak often of this as a “spark” when it is just as often only an abstract glimmer or an out-of-focus flicker. Being patient and being willing to follow this light is the very beginning of the creative process. And as one shimmer leads to another, the questions begin: Which idea is worth pursuing? What do I really believe in?

The answers come as you try to find clarity and find a way to take your prized intention and give it some shape, give it FORM. Whether you work in clay, paint, digital, dance, or composition, you need to give yourself the freedom to be expressive. With expression comes success, failures, and the occasional happy accident.

This refinement from amorphous to specific is at the core of "form".
