7 Life Changing Books for Creatives

Amy Wren

I used to hate reading when I was in school but as I’ve gotten older there is nothing I love more than getting engrossed in a good book. It hasn’t happened much since I’ve become a mother and on the odd occasion when I have been able to sit down with a book, nothing fills up my cup more. I often get asked for book recommendations as I always have a few on the go at the same time so I’ve collated a list of books that have inspired my creative journey and had a profound impact on my life.

Here is a list of 7 of my most highly recommended, life changing books for any artists or creative looking to deepen your journey with within yourself and/or your creative practice.

  1. The Artist’s Way by Julia Camera

  2. Make Art No Matter What by Beth Pickens

  3. Find Your Artistic Voice by Lisa Congdon

  4. Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

  5. The War of Art by Steven Pressfield

  6. Everything Is Figureoutable by Marie Forleo

  7. Steel like an Artist by Austin Kleon
