Lyne Marshall is a contemporary Australian artist who has exhibited extensively in Australia and overseas. This book is the result of her ongoing research towards a better understanding of the elements involved in producing emotive artworks. It is t a set of step-by-step instructions to creativity but rather a book for anyone seeking to understand the creative process and contemporary art. Using narrative to describe her own struggle to create, she explores how we can reclaim our childhood ability to be naturally creative. It includes creative exercises and covers issues facing practising artists.
