Question

Here's a question I often ask myself; do you need to be able to draw to be an artist?  I can't draw, but I love colour and texture and 'playing' with all the different materials in my studio.  Should I consider myself to be an artist?  I'd love to hear your views.

  1. I don't think you have to be able to draw, or paint for that matter, in a 'traditional' way to be called an artist. You create beautiful cards and journals using colour, texture and various different materials. You transfer an idea from your mind onto the page infront of you. Someone who takes a photo or writes a piece of music could be called an artist - they are creating something in a different medium, but it is done in an artful way, piecing together different elements to create an outcome for themselves and others to enjoy.

    I would say, tag that label on yourself, you are an artist!
