The MYTH of talent holds too many artists back, but it doesn’t have to keep you small, too


I’ve met so many artists, most of them self-taught, who feel like something is missing in their art. They don’t feel skillful enough, and they feel like they haven’t found their voice yet as a creative. And this whole self-taught thing has them wondering: is my skill level holding me back from making better art?

With so many new technologies available to us, it’s easier than ever to look at someone else’s art on Instagram and get caught up in the game of comparison. The problem with this is “comparisonitis” clouds our judgment to really assess our art, our skill level, and our ability to really know we want for our own art. Should we be doing what they are doing?

The good news is information is SO much easier to access and we have all that we need at our fingertips. YOU can find the answers you seek. Of course, this comes with its own challenges: how do we decide what information we need and where to seek it?

Join me to get a better understanding of what the term “art foundations” means so we can ditch the myth and get actionable strategies you can immediately apply to your art. Start up-leveling today, and make the art you truly want to create.

Two degrees, dozens of courses, and thousands of students later, I’ve discovered the exact ingredients that differentiate the artist who sees exponential growth in their art from the artist who stays stuck.
