Creativity & Confidence

  “The greater the artist, the greater the doubt.

Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize”

– Robert Hughes

“…meeting Bandura was really cathartic for me because I realized that this famous scientist had documented and scientifically validated something that we’ve seen happen for the last 30 years. That we could take people who had the fear that they weren’t creative, and we could take them through a series of steps, kind of like a series of small successes, and they turn fear into familiarity, and they surprise themselves. That transformation is amazing.” David Kelley
