How Will You Use That Extra Energy?

The promise of spring isn’t far off here in the Northern Hemisphere. This time of rebirth and renewal can be especially motivating, and it’s a perfect opportunity to pursue new horizons in your artistic career. As you shrug off the sleepy energy of winter, make time to seek out ways to expand your practice, your network and even your financial picture. Here are a few to get you started.
