Honestly, art is subjective. If anyone – even someone you love – says anything about something you’re passionate about, then it can be a struggle. But if that passion is something that relies on opinions and expressions, she doesn’t have a right to say anything terrible about it. I don’t know what your art looks like, but you have to keep on drawing. You pick up that pencil and know that no one is stopping you. The fact that you continued just means her comments are nothing at the end of the day. Talk to her and say that you aren’t comfortable when she doesn’t voice her opinion constructively. Tell her you’ll get better.
Because, really, all artists do.
