Danielle Krysa is the author of Your Inner Critic Is A Big Jerk, Creative Block, and Collage, all published by Chronicle Books. She is also the creator of the contemporary art blog The Jealous Curator. In this lecture Danielle tells the story of the day she met her inner critic, the 15 year art-hiatis that followed, and the aha moments that eventually taught her how to work with that big jerk. She realized, after writing her first book Creative Block, that everyone hears that annoying voice from time to time (or all the time), but it’s how you two communicate that makes all the difference. Sometimes a little couples therapy is required, because let’s face it, whether you like it or not, that little voice is there till death do you part.
Some of what she'll talk about includes:
- Forming new habits that will make your inner critic work for you
- A stop to self-bullying, and the start of getting on with your goals
- Tips & tricks to push forward when that voice shouts, ‘ QUIT!’
