I talk with a lot of my students who finally start making the most beautiful art of their life, and one of the things that makes them happiest is to finally feel like saying, "I'm an Artist." This may sound obvious to a lot of people, but this is huge for women who've been waiting their whole life to feel valuable and confident with their art, and their true purpose. Here's the question: Do you feel like something is missing, or do you feel down in your life, when you are not creating? Do you feel happier when you are making your art? If the answer is  "yes", you're an artist.
