Reignite your Creativity!
“Everybody is talented because everybody who is human has something to express.”
Do you feel like your creativity has been suppressed under the weight of all the “must-dos” in your life? Then this week’s Rocking Midlife® Podcast interview with Faigie Kobre might just be the inspiration you need to dust off your paint brushes, your sketchbooks, your musical instrument or your pottery wheel, and reignite that creative spirit in your midlife years!
Faigie lives in New York and is a mother of 6 children and grandmother to many! She works with women who love art but, don’t feel creative due to earlier negative art experiences, Through her workshops, Faigie helps these women reignite their creativity by introducing them to the magical medium of alcohol inks, which are vibrant, fluid and forgiving and which make everyone who uses them feel like an artist.

During our conversation, we talked about whole creativity is something that is often neglected in our lives, and how midlife can be the perfect time to reignite it, due to us having more space in our lives now that we are through the child-raising years. We also touched on how we need to change our inner conditioning that tells us that anything creative or artistic is “frivolous” and not worth doing.
Faigie is passionate about seeing women reignite their creativity and shared many key insights including:
- How you don’t have to be born with a talent for drawing to become an artist.
- How alcohol inks can be the perfect medium to help you reignite your creative side.
- How taking the time to be creative can fuel your soul

Creativity is so easily stunted when not used often. I find that I get grouchy when I don’t have those periods of creativity and I set certain “do not disturb” phases especially when I am writing.
Good for you in protecting your time when creating, and I hear you about feeling grouchy when not getting the chance to be creative!
This was inspiring to me. We often underestimate our creativity. Often we neglect even trying because we put others first. This art class sounds both fun and rewarding.
I totally agree with you Nancy! So many of us tell ourselves that we aren’t creative and stop ourselves from an experience that can be fun and joyful.
Creativity can come in so many forms. For me, it’s in my kitchen. I find I can express myself in the art of food preparation. We need to remember that we can be creative – art is more than just paintings.
Yes! I completely agree with you.
Creative expression or “art” is so much more than visual.
