Quotations from from Real, Working Artists:
“Sixteen months ago I left my full time job to run my own photography business. It was simultaneously the most terrifying and the most empowering experience of my life.
I have keep reminding myself of the many years of school, bad jobs, and other prep that went into getting me to this stage. Success or no, I never stop working.”
–Photographer Flee Kieselhorst
“I often get asked how I balance working full time and painting full time and I tell them that I might not sleep much, but I am happy.
My art is my reason for living, so I HAVE to do it.
The whole point is, JUST DO IT. Don’t let a little thing like working for the man hold you back from being an artist.”
–Artist Leanne “Elrod” Rodriguez
