Updated: May 13

It's time to crush imposter syndrome. A few weeks ago, or perhaps longer, I attended an event that left me feeling like an imposter. It was an uncomfortable experience, one that wasn't anyone's fault but my own insecurities bubbling to the surface. However, as time has passed and I've reflected on that dreadful feeling, I've come to realise something profound. From that unsettling experience, I've unearthed what truly matters to me.

Turning The Doubts Around

Yes, I paint pretty pictures. Yes, I'm drawn to vibrant colours, and yes, my paintings exude joy. But beyond the strokes of my brush lies a deeper realisation—the importance of art and its role in society.

Standing in a crowded room, faced with the daunting task of introducing myself as an artist, I used to falter. Doubts would creep in, questioning my legitimacy in this world of successful business women. But now, armed with newfound understanding, I hold my head high.

I'm a Proud, Happy, Successful Artist

Being an artist is a privilege—an honour that extends beyond mere talent. It's the ability to evoke emotions, to spark joy, and to inspire. It's about connecting with people on a level that transcends words. My art isn't just about pretty pictures; it's about making a difference, no matter how small.

So, the next time I share with others that I am an artist, I do so with confidence and pride. I've learned to crush imposter syndrome! Because being an artist means contributing to the collective tapestry of human experience. In fact, it means bringing a splash of colour to an otherwise grey world.

And as I navigate through life's ups and downs, I find solace in the knowledge that my art has the power to uplift, to comfort, and to unite. It's a reminder that even in moments of self-doubt, my creativity has value.
