Dear Artist, what do you want?

We put so much pressure on ourselves as artists and creatives. We want to be the best. We want to succeed. We want longevity. We want consistency. We want growth. We want the right platforms. We want recognition. We want to show the doubters - See I did it, I’m doing it and I’m a star! We want to change our pasts and shape our futures. We want to be heralded damn it. And we’re so hard on ourselves. We’re perfectionists. We feel our souls screaming, lamenting, in turmoil when we’re not creating, not being listened to, respected or understood.

Feeling the fear about your career

It’s OK to feel fear as as an artist. But it’s important not to let it stop you from creating or moving forward.

At the time I didn't have the best representation and I was struggling to get work and get opportunities so getting on the red carpet seemed very unlikely. Now I have been on so many red carpets they don't really mean anything to me anymore. I don't mean I don't enjoy them, of course its fun to get dressed up and have your photo taken, meet other artists and watch a film or some theatre but it doesn't represent success to me anymore. Success for me is having the ability

What's stopping you from having the career and life of your dreams?

Your MINDSET! Everything starts within. Take a look at your life right now. All areas, financial, relationships, career, opportunties, where you live, how many holidays you take a year, the clothes you wear, your body and health. If you're unhappy with any of these areas only you have the power to change them. It all starts with the daily conversations you're having with yourself, your beliefs, how much of other people's issues and worries you take on as your own, how much you absorb what's happening around you and apply it to your own life. Artists especially can be victims of oh but the industry, oh but lack of opportunities, oh but its hard to make money! OMG you literally have to s
