nurturing creativity

Do you think creativity is more Nature or Nurture? I am careful with my daughter not to push any interests on her, but naturally she is exposed to a lot of creativity at home because I enjoy creating art and crafts. I was no Picasso when I was a kid but I do remember always tagging along with my mom as she prepared for craft shows. I was so fascinated with all of the different things you can create from nothing. I kept at it but still can't say my art stood out until well after I started my first job out of college. 

Maybe we have a little bit of it in our DNA but do you think it's mostly our environment growing up? If we don't continually pursue our creative curiosity, do we lose it?
