Reflections on Art, Growth, and Imposter Syndrome: A journey with Lindsey Tucker Designs


Friends and supporters of Lindsey Tucker Designs,

As I sit down to write this blog post, I find myself reflecting on the whirlwind of experiences that have defined the past couple of months. It's been an exhilarating journey filled with art, growth, and moments of self-doubt. I'm thrilled to share some highlights with you all.

First and foremost, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you who joined me at the Castro Country Club in San Francisco for my art show. The support and love I received from friends and loved ones during the opening party on March 23rd was truly overwhelming. Your presence meant the world to me, and I'm deeply humbled by the response to my work. The show, which has been up since March 11th, is almost completely sold out—a testament to the power of community and the appreciation for art.

Throughout this journey, I've had the privilege of connecting with new clients and creating four new commissioned pieces. Each interaction has been a reminder of why I embarked on this creative journey in the first place. Yet, amidst the joy and success, I've grappled with familiar feelings of imposter syndrome. Since the day I picked up a paintbrush, it seems, doubt has been a constant companion. But I've learned to confront these feelings head-on, pushing forward even when the path ahead feels uncertain and uncomfortable.

The road to growth is rarely smooth, and it's been no different for me. But with each step, I've felt the imposter within me shrink just a little bit more. As the show draws to a close, I'm filled with a renewed sense of purpose and determination. It's time to shift my focus back to my website, craft fairs, and in-person sales this summer. Stay tuned for exciting deals and discounts—I have an overflowing inventory of greeting cards waiting to find new homes!

Admittedly, the business side of things has always been a bit daunting for this right-brained creative soul. But I'm learning to navigate it in my own Lindsey-esque way, fueled by my unwavering passion for creativity. And speaking of inspiration, I'm thrilled to share that I'll be embarking on several adventures in the coming months. I am writing to you today from Spain and headed to my first-ever cruise to Greece and Turkey next month. I can't wait to soak in the sights and sounds that will undoubtedly fuel my artistic endeavors.

In April, I had the privilege of attending Camp Thundercraft, a conference for small business owners on Vashon Island, WA. Surrounded by talented women entrepreneurs, I gleaned invaluable insights into the world of running a creative business. Now armed with newfound knowledge and inspiration, I'm eager to apply these lessons to my own journey.

As I look ahead, I'm filled with gratitude for the unwavering support of this incredible community. Thank you for being a part of this journey with me. Whether you're a longtime supporter or a new friend, please know that your encouragement means the world to me.

As always, if there's anything I can create for you today, please don't hesitate to reach out. Here's to embracing the journey, embracing the growth, and embracing the creative spirit within us all.

With heartfelt gratitude,
Lindsey Tucker
