Dame Barbara Hepworth was an English modernist sculptor who, amongst many other things, was a mother to triplets, one of the few women to gain prominence in her artistic generation, and dedicated a significant portion of her life to uplifting the place of her fellow artists in British society. In short, she was a phenom and has been an inspiration to me for years. I came across two quotes from her that are a kind of rallying cry for this week’s theme:

“I found one had to do some work every day, even at midnight, because either you’re professional or you’re not.”

“Body experience…is the centre of creation.”

Be like Barbs this week and take a step towards your creative calling. Take action every day towards the values you hold for yourself.
