Now, back to the scheduled program. It took me a long time to consider myself an artist, and realize that I truly am one.
But I never considered myself an artist.

Now, when people ask what I do or what I am, I tell them proudly that I'm an artist. I tell them that my most recent work is wearable art-- because whenever I make jewelry, that is what my ultimate goal.
I'm not saying that I think of myself as the world's best artist. I'm not saying there's nothing else for me to learn-- far from it-- and I still have doubts.

But now, at least I know, thanks to friends and family (and my own soul-searching) that I deserve the title.
To those of you reading my blog, who might be questioning your OWN status as an artist, I highly recommend that you read this article. It expresses my feelings, exactly, about what it means to be one.
Do my perspectives on being an artist resonate with any of you? I know I'm not the only one who struggles with this title... do any of you have experiences to share?
Tune in tomorrow, same bat time, same bat channel, for more alphabetical excitement!
