Highly recommend especially to anyone who has been creating for a while and wants some insight into their own creative process.
"An Artist Empowered," infused with spirit and hard-won insights, contains everything needed to sustain creation over a lifetime. It's simply a magnificent achievement.
Janet Grace Riehl, author Sightlines: A Poet's Diary
Eden's 'dharma' - his 'reason for being here' - is a strong theme within the book and it is empowering to be swept up by his self-belief, a state that all artists must surely attain if they are to produce works from the soul. Anecdotes from Eden's life pepper the pages, giving a personal touch to what is essentially a reference book. We really get to know Eden as a person and, through the black and white similes of his artwork, an artist.
The layout of the book is appealing. Sidebars contain poignant and relevant quotes, many from Eden himself; bold section headings act as grab lines, allowing the reader in scan-mode to to be caught in mid flight; a comprehensive index makes for quick and easy searching.
An Artist Empowered is the perfect reference for anyone desiring to affirm their individuality.
artist--from painters to poets. The author is living it, and is willing to
put his soul on the line for the reader to examine and learn.
This book will also intrigue anyone with an interest in the arts, from
collectors to art teachers.
