Blog / 2017 / Artists Shouldn’t Work for Free.

May 15, 2017

For more about how to make a living even when you give some of your art away, check out this post. Tomorrow is my 14th birthday as an artist and this video is meant to mark the occasion! When I turned 10 as an artist, I wrote a book about art marketing, and to celebrate my 13th anniversary I made a video detailing where my income comes from.

This painting is part of Empathetic Magic, which opens June 10th at the MT Burton Gallery in New Jersey!
