An artist, to me, is a person with an imagination. You've got an imagination, You're creative. You are an artist. Believe that, my friend.
Pablo Picasso said,
'Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up.'
One solution would be not to grow up! Ha, ha...as if, that's possible.
The better solution would be to let the artist in you grow.
Perhaps along the way you've stifled your creativity because someone laughed at you. Forget them. Channel those feelings into words, into art. Use your creativity to heal yourself.
Do what you love and what makes you feel good. Create because you must. Not for the recognition. Not for money. Those will follow when you allow yourself to create with passion.
Practice. Hone your skills. Forget about trying to be perfect. Try to be original.
Connect with other artists. Make place in your life for those who will build you up and yet not shy away from giving you an honest opinion.
Remember, you are an artist. And the world is waiting to see your works.
