Dreams can come true, but it takes work. For artists, the dream is a career in which your passion generates income. This is possible. But it won’t just happen. Artists are responsible for getting their work out into the world, for building up the resources they need to further their practice and their careers, in essence, they are their own advocate at all times. While this can feel overwhelming, with the right resources and committed time, you can make your artistic dream a reality.
