Since today’s topic is ‘artist’ I figured this would be a great opportunity to do a self-portrait. Artists only make up less than 2% of the workforce in the United States, a statistic which includes not just visual artists, but also photographers, directors, writers, performing artists, and architects. Of those working artists about 41% are working freelance, like me. Working as a freelance artist is difficult, but artists overall enjoy much higher job satisfaction than other careers, which is something I certainly can attest to.
