This paper will touch on the aspects that are present in the ‘way of working’ of Artists. A description is created using a black box approach and in-depth interviews with artists. A crucial role for consciousness was identified. The derived description enables a meaningful discussion on the act of creating. Calling this a model will do injustice to the highly intuitive and illusive event (or period) of artistic creation. Case studies and interviews used in this paper indicate that it holds meaning across various disciplines like Visual Arts, Architecture, Music, Performing arts, Painting, Writing, etc. Keywords: Expression, Feeling, Sensing, Meditation, Consciousness, Design thinking, Product development, Creativity, Process.
