Put simply: you are the only limit to your own success.
I love this industry, and think you will too. I started off in a similar position to you; I really am not that artistic, but the more I practise, the better I become. In regards to the coding side of it, there are heaps of great communities, such as these forums, with plenty of people always happy to help out.
I would suggest that you start out by learning HTML and CSS (focus on HTML5). Once you have your head wrapped around those, you will hopefully have an idea of whether you would prefer to do more front-end or back-end, and then choose the appropriate path.
