Do you ever doubt yourself – do you ask yourself these questions? I know I struggle if people call me an ‘artist’ – I don’t think of myself as an artist, I think of myself as a creative, a crafter, a blogger… but not anything so ‘lofty’ as an artist.
But perhaps I’m giving the term ‘artist’ airs and graces? What defines an artist as opposed to a designer/maker? Is the line that artists create for the sake of pure creation, without thought to money or a market?
I doubt that – some of the most famous artists in history worked on a commissioned basis for rich families or organisations.
What say you?
