Blog / 2020 / How Deleting Facebook and Instagram Is Changing My Art

October 13, 2020

Whether the artist views their work as self-expression or communication, how an artist relates with their audience will have a major impact on the work being made. It’s why I work so hard to tune out useless comments about my art and why I am so glad that I am turning off the noise of social media.

This hummingbird was commissioned by one of my Patreon supporters. You can hire me to make you a painting of an animal of your choosing for $300 if you sign up to support my work for $50 a month for six months. There are also prints and pretty things with this image in my Redbubble shop!
