It is already being done. I have been doing it for many years, and so have my inner circle of friends and colleagues. We share our secrets here with you in ‘How to make a living as an artist’.


You could be a full time professional artist, like me with forty years in my studio, and still going strong!
You could be published worldwide.
You could have regular exhibitions of your work in many countries on five continents.
You could have international sales of your work grossing about half a million dollars a year.

Like me.

This book will walk you through the process step by step, chapter by chapter. You will be able to skip from subject to subject in any order.

But the life of an artist is not just a wonderful way of making money and kicking goodbye to the wage slavery of working for someone else. There are several other benefits when you become a full time professional artist.
