Am I an Artist? (When is it okay to start calling yourself an Artist?)
Deborah Christensen

Reciting the mantra “I’m an artist” in front of the mirror does not make you an artist. No, you are not an artist without effort, sweat and thousands of hours of work. You give a purely spiritual connotation to this word. It is unfair to put the mark of equality between matisse and someone who makes cakes, no matter how sensational they look.
