Key points

  • Taking inspiration from another artist is a great way to get started – but remember to make art that’s personal to you.
  • Challenge yourself to move out of your comfort zone.
  • Experiment with different materials and make notes on what’s good and bad.
  • Hitting a wall is natural. Take a step back, pick out the good bits, and try to push them further.
