Does our craft define us? Or do we define our craft?

I hope you're having a great week so far and your day will filled with excitement and inspiration.

Over the last few weeks, I've been thinking about art and how it pertains to filmmaking and photography, and other creative mediums. I consider myself an artist of sorts and I have so many questions about the meaning of all this, from a psychological standpoint. I believe that we were all born with the ability to create—to create something, anything. Over time, some of us push to master this ability.

As a filmmaker, I wonder... why is it so important for us as humans to express ourselves through our craft? How does it benefit others? How do we know if something is a true work of art or when it's just practice? What makes art visually appealing? Are science and art connected in some way?

Does our craft define us? Or do we define our craft?

These are just a few questions I'd like you to consider as you're making your way through your journey as a creative individual.

Also, on the topic of art, I ran across this quote. I'd love to read your thoughts on it.

"The enemy of art is the absence of limitations." - Orson Welles

What does this mean to you as an artist, filmmaker, photographer, writer, etc?
