Becoming a full-time artist: advice I wish I’d never taken

Hi, everyone! In this video I share the four pieces of art advice I received early on in my career that didn’t work for my business. If your goal is to become a successful, full-time artist, perhaps these things will allow you to make the best decisions you possibly can for you and your art business.
The 4 things I talk about are:
1. selling my work on several art websites
2. signing up for as many social media channels as possible
3. Focusing on selling my art in galleries
4. Concentrating my time on selling at art fairs
**what didn’t work for me may very well work for you – my intention here is to promote discussion and to give you some things to consider as you find your path to success.
