Brave Art book by Mark Pierce


​Courageous Creativity In An Age Of Conformity

​A guide to becoming creatively bold

​Overcome doubt, create with conviction, and dare to make the art our world desperately needs.

Whether you sing, dance, act, compose, paint, design, write, lead a team, or make sandwiches in the local deli, your human spirit was created to create things of beauty. And what if beautiful work holds healing answers for our broken world?

Combining stories from his own journey with inspirational and practical insights, Mark Pierce explores why we should approach an uncertain future with the heart and mind of an artist – a brave artist.

It’s the artist who expresses the impact of life on the human heart. It’s the artist who ignites fresh hope in the weary. It’s the artist who offers beauty for ashes. And it’s the brave artist who does this with love, and without apology.

Does this sound like you? Or who you want to be? Perhaps who you are called to be?

Conventional wisdom insists we do something “more important” than pursue creative gifts, especially in times of great shaking. But by nature, artists and creative people disrupt convention. Undaunted by cynics, they craft works of solace to soothe the hurting, and dream up new ways of guiding us safely through the mire.

So, will you risk a more artful way of life, choose courage in defiance of fear, and help shape the world that is shaping us?

This is your call to brave art.
