Artists

The artist Henri Matisse wrote: “Another word for creativity is courage.” In general, our society has labelled artists as misfits and eccentrics … lost in their own world. Their hard work written off to having ‘talent’. But talent alone never dug a depth. That is left to the person wielding it. To have the courage to pour hundreds of hours into your craft, often with very little reward. To fail, and to flop. To suffer criticism, but to keep on working. To place your deepest secrets and rawest emotions onto a piece of paper, and then hold it up for the world to see.
