“If Art is made by ordinary people, then you’d have to allow that the ideal artist would have to be an ordinary person too, with the whole usual mixed bag of traits that real human beings possess.”
Art & Fear - The Perils (and rewards) of Artmaking

What does it mean to be an artist?
Before you go look it up or google it - think - what does it really mean to be an artist?
We are humans that live complicated lives, suffer pain, fall in love, make mistakes...Just like every other human being. We are all artists, what sets us apart, what makes our art shine is the work we put into our craft. Taking the time to build on our talents and develop our skills. But first, just be human, just be ordinary.
