Do you wish you were more artistic?

Are you the type of person who stares enviously at beautiful works of art, longing to be the one who effortlessly wields the brush or moulds the clay? Do you secretly envy those folks who can whip up stunning doodles on the corner of a napkin, while your own attempts at drawing resemble the work of a deranged chicken?


The yearning to tap into our artistic side is as old as time itself, and luckily for you, we're here to help you uncover the Picasso within.

Embrace your artistic appetite

Let's face it – we've all been there. Wistfully gazing at a blank canvas or piece of paper, wondering where on Earth to start. The truth is, everyone has the potential to be artistic; you just need to give yourself permission to play!

Remember when you were a kid, and you'd scribble your wild imaginings onto any scrap of paper you could find? It's time to recapture that spirit. Grab a piece of paper, a napkin, or even the back of a receipt and just let your imagination run wild. Don't worry about making a masterpiece; the goal here is to have fun and let your creativity flow.

Dabble in different mediums

Being artistic isn't just about picking up a paintbrush – it's about exploring a world of creative possibilities. Why not try your hand at various mediums, from sketching to watercolours, and even digital art? You might surprise yourself by discovering a hidden talent for sculpting or photography. Remember, the journey of creativity is about exploration, not just the destination.

Steal like an artist

Here's a secret that all the greats know: stealing can be a good thing – in the world of art, that is! Don't worry, I'm not advocating outright plagiarism, but rather the idea that inspiration can come from the unlikeliest of places.

Study the works of your favourite artists, dissect their techniques, and adapt them into your own creations. Picasso himself once said, "Good artists copy; great artists steal." So go ahead, raid the treasure trove of artistic inspiration and make it your own.

Think outside the sketchbook

Creativity doesn't have to be confined to a piece of paper or canvas. Think bigger, bolder, and more three-dimensionally! Transform ordinary objects into artistic marvels.

Ever thought of using driftwood to create a stunning wall sculpture, or repurposing old CDs into a dazzling mosaic? Try some glass engraving or chainsaw carving. The world is your artistic oyster, and you are the one wielding the paintbrush of potential. I love doing earth art, making little sculptures and pictures from leaves and stones.

Embrace the imperfections

Let's get one thing straight: not every stroke of the brush needs to be flawless, and not every line needs to be perfectly straight. Thinking like that is a great way of never starting. Embrace the imperfections, for they are what make your work uniquely yours.

Remember, the world's most famous artists didn't always hit the mark on their first try. So if you accidentally turn your serene landscape into a whimsical caricature, just roll with it! Who knows – it might be your accidental masterpiece in the making.

Surround yourself with creativity

They say you're the average of the five people you spend the most time with. Well, the same can be said for your artistic pursuits. Surround yourself with creativity by joining art groups, attending workshops, or simply engaging in creative conversations with like-minded individuals. You'll be amazed at how your own creativity can be sparked by the energy and ideas of others.

Practice, practice, practice

Just like any skill, becoming more artistic takes practice. Set aside dedicated time each day or week to flex your creative muscles. It could be as little as fifteen minutes of sketching in your spare time or committing to a weekly painting session. The more you practice, the more your skills will improve, and before you know it, you'll be proudly displaying your own gallery-worthy creations.
