If you’re anything like me, then you probably face a lot of challenges when it comes to your art. Whether it’s finding ways to complete projects, or having the courage to show them to an audience, every artist has been there. I’ve faced so many moments of disappointment, discouragement, and failure on my journey. And I’m still so far from my destination! So how do we pick ourselves up and move on? How do we overcome the challenges that we face? The stARTup Artist blog is for up and coming artists facing issues of procrastination, motivation, creative block and the creative blues. Let’s reorient our minds to overcome the tests we face so that we can walk right up to success and poke it in the eye.

What kind of challenges do you face as an artist? Email me at and let me know.

And thanks for reading!
