AM I CREATIVE ENOUGH??

I know SOOOOO MANY PEOPLE have this block!

Hell, even I had this block.


I remember when I first realised I wanted to be an artist.

I had been making jewellery and selling it at markets for a living.


But deep down I REALLY wanted to be painting.

I wanted to be a painter.

I wanted that to be my life.


“But I think I’m shit!!”
“I don’t know how to paint!”
“I don’t know how to draw people!!”

A few days ago I posted an artwork entitled “on fire” because I had been on fire those last two weeks. But a few days later my energy troughed, my hormones kicked in and the veil lifting power of my mensturation slapped me in the face - "you’re trying to go too fast."

My creations aren't tolerating stagnation.

What if no-one came to my workshop because on some level I didn't want to run it?

I started running the woven mandala workshops to teach myself how to facilitate.
