When you think of an “artist”,
what is the first thing that comes to mind?
I asked google…

Exactly what I thought!
It’s an individual who “practices” these various forms of art.
We don’t have to be a “professional” to be an artist.
So why do we have such a hard time
to admit that we are an artist?

Give me a hand

For example, if someone asks,
“Oh, are you an artist!?”

For quite some time I would,
“uhhhhm” and “arrrrrhhh”
To eventually say,
“I guess I like to draw…
I’m not an artist though”
I never used to think I was good enough.

However, since I started traveling,
my confidence has boosted in so many ways
and I can finally start to feel happy
and proud with what I do.
Art is something that is part of me.

The reason I share all my work and
put myself out there on social media is because
I want to show that thing that I do
that is unique to me.
Everyone has that special thing that they were destined for.
But for some reason,
we are too shy or are told not to pursue it.

That’s why I’m out there to say;
“F*#$ what society thinks you should be doing”
If you are good at something – do it.
Make it work and be confident with yourself.

Times have changed.
Trust me,
there is more than enough room in the world
for creative individuals.
When people said;
if you do what you love,
you’ll never have to work a day in your life,
I now understand what they mean.

  1. Well ‘taelamade’, most of us knew you were extremely talented and I am so pleased that you now recognise the fact also. The est decision you ever made was to travel: that in itself gives you confidence and everything else follows (you do have to have natural talent though). I feel it should be mandatory for every young person to travel to ‘discover’ themselves. Very well done granddaughter. Love Nan xxxxx
