Jackie Battenfield has done that herself, and has been teaching many of us about the kinds of persistence, creativity, energy, and focus that we need to develop cash flow around our art.
Wish I could say that I've taken all of her advice -- but I've certainly taken it to heart! And as this book gets well used by my bedside, I'll expect that my web site ([..]) will be more inviting, my grant applications stronger, and my outreach to galleries and other sales channels more direct and more frequent.
Enough said. If you love your art, and you want or need to make money from it, read this book! Buy one for yourself, your friends, your library, your community arts center.
I plan to take a seminar from her within the next three years to help my passion for art to also become full time and get paid well for my art. You will learn a great deal from this gifted artist!
My one possibly negative comment is that I would have liked to see more about how the author integrated her creative work with the business of being an art business woman, but that's a minor criticism; it may have been the author's intent to avoid the issue of creativity.
I would definitely recommend it for young artists and graduating students of art.
