I've been creating works of art my whole life, I think as soon as I popped out of the womb I reached for a pencil! These days though I make most of my art while in bed, i've found it's the place I get the most inspired as well as being a 'safe place'.
Art educational institutions (with the emphasis on institutions) generally encourage and reward blandness and are terribly frightened of anything that is 'real' and at all confronting.
That is why them and I don't seem to get along.
When I'm producing art, especially something that really thrills me, its a rush, orgasmic, coming from the gut, unlike anything else.
