In partnership with our friends at Supernatural
Amy Whitaker, author of Art Thinking, is a bit of a unicorn, in that she has both an MBA and an MFA. She has taught business to artists, and art to businesspeople, which is why she’s sometimes called a “business poet.” And she makes both the economic world and the creative realm less intimidating and more accessible for us all. Whitaker describes art as a life process: It’s not about getting from point A to point B. It’s about inventing point B. We asked her for help carving out space for vulnerability and risk, and balancing the practical and creative self.
