Let me ask you some questions.
Do you feel overwhelmed at the thought of having to make a continuous supply of impressionable art to make a steady income as an artist? Do you believe that's the only way to "make it" as an artist? Is that what's keeping you in your full-time job and preventing you from stepping into your own creative business? If you said, "yes" to any of these questions, I feel you, and I hear you and let me tell you this:
Selling art is only one way of making money as an artist. And for many artists, it's actually their least lucrative income stream!
There are tons of ways that you can make a robust and steady income as an artist.
Becoming a self-employed artist can be a lot simpler, smoother, and financially stress-free when you learn to view your income as a conglomerate of many separate streams, rather than one big one.
You can lessen the pressure on yourself by letting art sales make up a fraction of your total income, so that you can take time to grow artistically, while making money steadily. Alternative channels utilize other skills and passions you have and can round out your life wonderfully.
