Do the words, I am an ARTIST, make you feel..
Uneasy, Shy or Overwhelmed?
I hop from art class to art course but never feel quite ready or good enough to call myself an artist
I can't imagine anybody actually appreciating my art, let alone buying it
My social media profile says 'artist' but do I have enough talent to take my creativity seriously
Believe it or not, there are many creatives struggling to embrace their artistic identity, shying away from making the word ARTIST their own.
BUT...If you're ready to ditch the lies holding you back, own this space and find your path to self-expression that is genuine & liberating, then I'd love to show you how!

The process of creating art is a very personal experience, and it often involves spending a lot of time alone. But, in order to improve and develop, it's also important to spend time with other creative people. This is why I began our creative community. It's a welcoming, gentle place to ask questions, connect with others, and learn and improve together.
