What I Do provides the following definitions for "artist":

  1. a person who produces works in any of the arts that are primarily subject to aesthetic criteria.
  2. a person who practices one of the fine arts, esp. a painter or sculptor.
  3. a person whose trade or profession requires a knowledge of design, drawing, painting, etc.: a commercial artist.
  4. a person who works in one of the performing arts, as an actor, musician, or singer; a public performer: a mime artist; an artist of the dance.
  5. a person whose work exhibits exceptional skill.
  6. a person who is expert at trickery or deceit: He's an artist with cards.
  7. Obsolete. an artisan.

Basing on those definitions, I am #3. As such, I'm also #1. I am definitely not #4 and I'm bad at being #6. I try to be #5 in everything I do. I have interests in being #7 of some sort. Being #2, though, is one of my many frustrations.
