5 Ways I Make Money As An Artist (with exact numbers)

5 Ways I Make Money As An Artist (with exact numbers)

Figuring out which income streams work best for your art career can be a challenge. In this video, I share the five income streams I used to make over six thousand dollars last month!

I don’t share these income reports to brag or to flex, just as a community resource. I desperately wished someone was more open about how they make money as an artist when I was just starting out my art career, and you know what they say, right? Be the change you want to see in the world.

I’m admittedly in a unique situation as an artist on YouTube, which makes my income streams different from other artists out there, but all of them are valid! I’m really excited to launch my online shop later this summer and add another income stream to my art business.
