From Chaos to Control: A Personal Artistic Evolution

Jan 15, 2024

Embarking on my artistic journey, I stumbled through disorganization, leaving emails unanswered, sticky notes as desk decor, and a desktop resembling a post-hurricane candy store. But here's the twist – I transformed chaos into control, and you can too. Let me share my personal evolution and the immense success it brought to my art career.

Embracing the Mess: My Candid Confession

I confess – by default, I'm not the most organized artist. Procrastination was my second nature, and disorder seemed my artistic birthright. But, amid the scattered sticky notes and cluttered desktop icons, I made a conscious choice to act against my natural tendencies.

The Art of Taking Control

Picture this: chaos turned into a symphony of success. Today, you'd never guess I was once drowning in disarray. My journey wasn't a miraculous overnight transformation; it was a deliberate, methodical shift towards control. From tackling one small mess to another, I regained control of my art career....

Reigniting Your Creative Mojo: Conquering Doubt and Challenges

Nov 24, 2023

Have you ever stepped into your studio and felt a nagging doubt about your abilities, your artistic vision, or your experience as an artist? I know I have. It's those moments when the creative journey can seem daunting, like I've suddenly forgotten everything that got me here. But, let me assure you, it's okay. Every artist faces these moments of self-doubt. It's part of the journey.

Embracing the Roller Coaster of Confidence

Confidence in our artistic abilities can be a roller coaster, especially when things aren't going as planned. Picture this: you're in your studio, and your artwork seems to be fighting back, stubbornly resisting your efforts. You find yourself at a creative impasse, and your confidence takes a nosedive. I've been there, too, and I understand the frustration.

However, it's precisely in these challenging moments that we must remember what brought us to where we are today. Think about the countless hours spent immersed in the world of art, studying, practicing,...

Breaking Barriers: How to Approach Art World Professionals with Confidence

Nov 17, 2023

Today, I want to share something close to my heart, a message that's all about unlocking your potential and finding opportunities you never thought possible. Let's dive in and discover how you can take your art career to the next level.

Giving People a Chance - The Art of Possibilities

We've all been there, right? That moment when we hesitate to approach someone we admire, whether it's a gallery owner, collector, or curator. We're gripped by the fear of rejection, the fear that they'll say no or, even worse, slam the door right in our faces.

I've been there too. Countless times, I've had these incredible ideas for art shows I wanted to curate in specific places, but my own self-doubt held me back. In my mind, I was certain they would reject my proposal.

But here's the thing: more often than not, the story we create in our heads doesn't match reality. We assume the worst, but we never truly give these individuals a chance to respond. We shouldn't be writing their responses for them...

Crafting Your Creative Path: The Artist's Guide to Self-Belief

Nov 06, 2023

As artists, we often find ourselves at the crossroads of self-doubt, wondering if we truly have what it takes to pursue our creative passions. It's a shared experience we've all encountered at some point. But I want to share a powerful concept that has personally transformed my creative path: The Artist on a Mission.

The Power of Confidence in the Creative Process

When I first conceived the idea of the Artist on a Mission, I realized the importance of identifying three core qualities that drive us forward. Confidence, the first of these qualities, serves as the foundation of our artistic journey. It's not just a word; it's a bold statement, a declaration we choose to embody.

Confidence isn't a magical trait you're born with; it's a daily path of growth. It's the inner belief that you are on a mission, driven by purpose. Full disclosure: I haven't always been the confident artist I am today. Doubt has crept in, causing me to question myself and my work. But here's the essential...

Boldly Addressing the World: Art, Beliefs, and the Artist's Dilemma

Nov 03, 2023

As an artist, you've felt the pull of your inner muse, beckoning you to share your unique perspective with the world. But what happens when you're met with uncertainty and resistance, and the act of speaking out through your art seems like traversing uncharted waters? I recently had a conversation with an artist who faced a dilemma we can all relate to, and the lessons learned in that exchange are invaluable.

The Artist's Dilemma: To Speak or Not to Speak

This artist questioned whether it was acceptable to share her concerns about current events on her Instagram. She had already faced backlash from some of her followers when she tried to use her art as a platform for her convictions. It's a predicament many artists encounter: the desire to give voice to their beliefs and emotions through their creative work, weighed against the fear of alienating their audience.

My advice to her was clear-cut but profound. If you're an artist, if you're an individual, you must stand up for what you...
