It took me YEARS to give myself permission to be an artist. As a child, I was always drawing and doodling, and friends would say "You're so talented, you should be an artist" but I never knew what that meant because my parents told that I couldn't be an artist. It left me confused and unhappy. And then one day, I realised I wasn't alone.
After a post on Instagram, comments came flooding in from the surface design community how they felt like imposters every time they called themselves "artists". I felt like an imposter too! But no more.
It's time for us to embrace who we are and who we want to be. It's time to give ourselves permission to be creatives and CLAIM that title of ARTIST today.
