How do Artists make a Living?

There was an interesting article by Elizabeth Day in the Observer earlier this year. Her story tells us about the problems artists encounter to make a living.

Today there are some who have touched the imagination of a gallery owner with a unique marketing gag and made the headlines.

So what do you do to make ends meet? Read about other artists and what Elisabeth Day  has to say about us by clicking on the highlighted name.
