"Humans have an innate need to create. Anyone can learn the techniques and tricks in art, but that doesn’t necessarily make them an artist. An artist has to go much deeper and reach down within themselves to access something that is greater than oneself and then attempt to share it with others."
in•nate

2. inherent in the essential character of something
3. Originating in or arising from the intellect or the constitution of the mind, rather than learned through experience.
