Creating Challenge Day 251--One Definition of "Artist"

Today I read an article about artist John Whipple in the July/August 2013 issue of Somerset Studio magazine. In the article, Whipple defined artist in a way I appreciate:
"I would define being an artist as a type of brain style, one where creativity, curiosity, problem solving, and finding connections somehow seem important and stimulating. The fascination is the surprise of seeing how your own mind resolves things."
I like that definition. What do you think?
