🌟What does it feel like to be an artist? I think it is great. As a result of my own experience. Having the gift of being a creative person is truly one of the best things ever. Because you can create your worlds of imagination, share stories, and reflect feeling into experiences. I think it is purely wonderful!
🦄 I often wonder why not everybody is an artist? It is not the fact that you paint, that makes you an artist, but it is a way of living, thinking and moving through the world.
🐶 The reality of an artist is mostly not that wonderful. In my experience, people think I am weird, like an alien that comes from a different planet, because I am not a good writer nor with numbers. Thank god for the invention of Grammarly and a calculator.
In art school,
🤯 In art school, I did realise everybody around me had a story like this. We all loved more to draw on our exams, then actually make the exams. Therefore art school is great, you can write, work and create the things you like to do. You learn how to be a professional.
👑 An artist is not enough valued
🌵Some people say I don’t like art, but I love architecture, design furniture, jewellery and movies. Seriously, these are all forms of art. It shows more the ignorance of that person, then it shows his or her knowledge. Everybody who creates is an artist.
☕The other side is that people act like it is a hobby. Actually, we make art because we love it and it is a real job.
👩🎨Daily I get messages from potential clients if I would like to give one of your works? So can you make something for me for free? Rembrandt, Leonardo, Picasso and Dahli, they sold their work and we think they were great artists. Therefore I believe we shouldn’t judge too hard on our local artist.
👑 Being the creator!
🕊️We need to get real people; all great artists in history made advertisements or painted porcelain. In order to start to value artists, it is important to take the job of an artist serious. I start my job at 8 AM, and I finish at 7 PM, I do marketing, sales, administration and create new works every day, like any other business.
👯We can see that the art world and artists are flourishing. When you look at LinkedIn there has never been as many jobs available and things you can do, to live from your art today. Would it not be great if you earn your money by being creative, and share your talents?
📺Being an artist is fantastic, the world is a significant corridor with only doors that open, and you get to decide which one to take. Because your art will assure your income. This might be difficult at the beginning of your career as an artist. But creating art that isn’t just your passion, as an advertisement or on assignment based art. That’s why you need to be smart, learn some skills, like selling, marketing, and design. I assure you at some point; you will start making money by creating art.
