This thesis describes an exploration of the processes of conception of inspiration and application in art-making through making art (engaging audiences in some instances), reflecting on the process of making art, and through the accounts of others who undertake such practice. A review of the current situation evidences that being inspired to create art is largely seen as a stage removed from the creative process, which happens before the creative process, after it or beyond it, yet not as part of it. The literature separates the creative act from the initial stage of being inspired, dividing the process into two distinctive perspectives that do not sit together. The literature does not portray a uniform whole experience. This view sees the individual as having little influence over the initiation of his or her artwork and the motivation to create it.
