Art Media is a blog about art and creativity. It was established in 2008 by a group of artists and art critics who believe that the creative industries are one of the most important components of the new media landscape.
The blog is aimed at both artists, curators and critics, as well as people interested in contemporary art, culture and entertainment.
Art Media provides a voice for free thinking artists and writers, who often have to go underground to express their views and opinions on contemporary art. The blog also aims at creating a space for dialogue between the artistic community and the general public, a space where the ideas of artists can be heard by those who are actively building their cultural environment.
Art Media connects like-minded people and inspires new projects, collaborations and partnerships. We want to encourage young artists to create their own projects and to be more involved in shaping their cultural environment rather than simply passively consuming it.
The blog includes posts written by guest authors on various topics related to art culture: exhibitions, performances, interviews with artists, tips on how to build your artist business etc. We have also launched a series of interviews with well-known artists from all around the world.”
In the last year I have been blogging about my art and creativity process, with the aim to make this important part of my life more visible. I write mostly about my own work, but from time to time I write about the works of other artists that I find inspiring.
The blog has been very positively received by readers and fellow artists alike, so I am happy to keep going with it.
I also started a newsletter which sends out short stories about art, creativity and culture every week. If you are interested in receiving it, please sign up on the form below.

I started Art Media, LLC to express my own creativity, and I’ve been writing about art and creativity since 2010. I’m also exploring new media and social networking tools.
I studied painting at college (and majored in English) then went on to gain a post-graduate certificate in screenwriting from UCLA Extension. My screenplays have won awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, the American Film Institute and the Austin Film Festival.
Actually, I’ve also won awards for painting, including one for a work that was acquired by the Bremen Museum in Germany, but that’s another story….

Art Media is a group of abstract painters who have been working together since 2005. The group has exhibited their work in various public and private venues in the Twin Cities, Minnesota and produced two full-length documentary films.
What’s the best way to make art?
I’m not going to tell you that. I’m not an artist and it isn’t my place. That’s your place, and you have to decide for yourself.
But one thing I do know: the best way to learn how to make art is to look at lots of other people’s art and try to figure out what they did.
I’m fascinated by the concept of “Art.” It’s one of those intangible things that everyone has an opinion about, but few people have a clear definition. The closest I’ve found is “the deliberate use of skill and creative imagination.”
I have no idea what skill is. And I’m not interested in creativity (which, as far as I can tell, is something only humans possess). But imagination intrigues me.
The imagination is a muscle. It can be strengthened through training, and it can atrophy through lack of use. Art — in any medium — is the process of deliberately exercising your imagination.
Art is a field of study that has been around for centuries. Over the years, many different types of art have been developed, from painting and drawing to sculpture, printmaking, and photography. Each type of art has its own set of artistic rules and principles that artists must follow in order to produce a work that is considered “art.”
Artists often work in teams or with other creative professionals to develop their ideas into works of art. They may also collaborate with technicians and other specialists who help them realize their vision. Many artists specialize in one type of art; others may be more generalists who are able to create in a variety of styles.
Artists may be self-taught or they may have attended a school or college where they received formal training in their chosen art form. Aspiring artists can “ease” into the industry by first working as assistants to established artists or by being hired as graphic artists or illustrators. Some may choose to focus on one aspect of the industry, such as teaching, while others find that they must move back and forth between the different areas of this career path depending on which offers them the best opportunities at any given time.
Another option is to become involved with the world of visual arts on an administrative level as an
