When you say you want to make art for a living some people will react the same as when as a child you wanted to be a prince/princes/rock-star. “Yeah, that is great, but maybe you should choose something more realistic” or “But what is your back up plan”
I’ve heard these things before.
I’m Sofie and I’m 19 years old. I live in the Netherlands and I want to make art for a living. Life is though for those who choose to go into arts. On this blog I want to share my journey to maybe making it as an artist!
I have one year to set up something that can create income. I don’t want to be rich, I just want to make enough to make a living. Hopefully some of that will come from selling original artwork. I want to sell online but I’m also looking in to selling my work on conventions or through other means.
Setting up a business is never easy. I hope I can inspire other people to join me on this journey. Maybe if you are also looking into making art for a living the blog will offer you some insight on how it is! If you want to join me on this journey that would be great and please do contact me !1
