How Limitations can Boost Your Creativity [149]

Apple podcast


When – and why – is it a good idea to place limits on your work? First, we discuss the benefits of limiting ourselves in some way. That might mean using a limited colour palette or setting rules for a certain body of work; it might mean keeping everything to one size; or it could mean limiting the media we use.

But whatever parameters we set, limits can open up our creativity. 

Then we look at the flip side – where might we benefit from challenging our limitations? What do we believe that might not be true? We hope this free-ranging discussion will help you to assess where limitations might fit into your practice. Comment below or share this episode and tag me on Instagram @alicesheridanstudio
