Why do you make art?

The answer to this question will help you to make better decisions.

On this episode of the Art with Soul podcast, we talk about why we create art – is it for business or for leisure? Determining the answer to that question can help you make better decisions about every aspect of art making.

Scroll through Instagram, and it seems as though almost every artist is running a business – be it via Patreon or ecourses; art commissions or selling artwork. And that’s a beautiful thing! What’s less visible, though, is the doubts and uncertainties that plague many other artists who are still on the fence about selling their art.

This uncertainty comes from a lack of clarity on why you create art. Get clear on that, and your entire decision making process becomes clearer.

Tune in, as I talk about:

  • The importance of determining why you create art
  • Untangling the business side of art from your self-worth
  • Some of the lies we believe as artists
  • How to take better decisions when it comes to our art

and much more!
