Finding Inspiration from Thinking Inside the Box


Artist, Phil Hansen developed a ‘shaky hand’ condition that threatened his ability to create the work he loves.

After an internal battle and a diagnosis that his condition would not improve, he chose to ’embrace the shakes’ and instead, find limitations and use them to drive his creativity forward.

Many of us wear a number of hats, and as creative people we are always taught to think outside the box. In the inspiring video below, which also showcases some of his fascinating artworks, Phil asks, ‘can we become more creative by instead, limiting ourselves and thinking inside the box?’
