Being an artist is a different thing for each individual—there is a journey of steps each one takes, a sequence that transforms one from wanting to be an artist to naming one’s self as an artist. Inherent in this evolution is the process of participating in the act of creation enough times until the idea of ‘ARTIST AS SELF’ shifts from theory into being, Internal obstacles such as fear of failure, beliefs about talent and using comparisons with those we admire to gauge our abilities often cover up the main desire: to be truly one’s self—to create the art that comes only from within you—to experience the satisfaction of being truly yourself.
