An artistic style is a unique blend of these three ingredients:
This is what make you unique. Your personality is inherent and something you are with.
What keeps you up at night. What are you values and what to you love to talk about? All these elements make up your passions.
What techniques can best express who you are and what you want to say. This is your palette, your techniques, the mediums that you use.
Style is learned, adopted, manipulated, and developed over time. Sometimes on accident, sometimes on purpose, and often times it is a combination of both.
Your style is a combination of your voice, techniques, color choices, compositions, subject matter, media, and more all wrapped up.

It is the glue that unifies your body of work.
