Two key qualities of an artist, Anna says, are presence and inquisitiveness. Oprah has presence, Anna says. "It's the feeling that the person on stage is sitting right next to you," Anna explains. Another important trait of an artist, Anna says, is curiosity. "Being an artist of any kind—whether you're just a guardian of the human spirit or whether you're trying to create art that is meaningful in the world—is about being insatiably curious."
