We are very happy with all the interviews and emails we receive from artists, art-business owners, collectors, galleries all over the world. Sometimes we receive emails or posts on our social media channels from people we don’t know a lot about because they did not include any personal or contact information. These contributions are often very interesting and add value to our quest for how to make a living from art Therefore, I’ll collect these contributions in this frequently updated article so you can enjoy them.
We hope you will get inspired!

NEVER GIVE UP! Best advice I can give. Tons of social media. Don't be in a rush to sell commercially you just might cheapen your art for a quick dollar. Make a name for yourself, meet and support artist around the world, people talk so consistently post new art. Practice, practice, practice. I haven't made it big time Yet, but most artist know my name. Think outside the box. Don't be afraid to piss people of by what your creating, because those are the art works that are remembered.
Push the limits, all the time. Don't be jealous, and always remain calm and positive. Support everyone as you wish to be supported. Don't let the art world tell you if you've mastered your art, you'll know by the competition. Most art promoted, and I mean no offense, but its crap, don't get upset about it do your personal best. If you NEVER give up they cant defeat you. Enjoy the journey, never look back and always Love yourself!! :-) :-)
My interview statement, Best advice I can give to anyone.

What drove you to become a profesional artist? Louise Cutler:
''I do not think one is driven to become a professional artist. I think it is something you as an artist slowly migrate to the more you pursue excellence in your work. Most artist want to merely create, I know I do . I am of the opinion you do not become a professional artist because you sale or need to sale. To me It is when you have developed a high level of discipline in your craft and a stander of professionalism that allows you to rise above mediocre and stand out as an individual. Collectors do not just buy your art they are buying your story as well''.
