Someone who consistently is driven to create.
The potential problem with defining an artist is:
One who has produced several creative works, but then relaxes in the shadow of past actions...like someone who's written a book or two, but who now gives more effort to "being a writer" than actually writing. Example? Just turn on a pop radio station. Chances are whatever you randomly hear right now, people will have forgotten 10 years from now. Many "artists" are more concerned with going with what already works in proven genres...and then seem to forget the true meaning of "artist."
