The Inspiration Behind This Series
As I walk this creative career path, I continue to grow both as a person and as an artist. Through my interaction with the art community, specifically on Instagram, I am always learning and I have come to the realization that it is my calling to help others through the common connection of Art. I believe that Art is for everyone and that everyone has the ability to be creative. Moreover, I want to help people change the way they think about Art and to overcome whatever hurdles lie in their path. I want to help other artists find creative freedom and to become their best creative self.
This goal lead me to ask the question: What are your biggest struggles or fears when it comes to making art?
I was pleasantly surprised by the number and range of responses I got. I immediately decided that I would reply to each as completely as I could. An in-depth answer, not just a few quick sentences, because the goal, after all, is to actually help others. I thought I would dedicate one full Instagram post for each reply. That was all well and good until I realized that my answer was more than double the maximum post length allowed. So here I am, writing a series of blog posts instead. If my words only help one person it will have been worth it.
So I invite you to join the conversation. How can I help you with your art journey? Or perhaps I should say, what are your biggest struggles or fears when it comes to making art? I am sure they are things we can all relate to and perhaps together we (the art community) can overcome them.
