Being an Artist - Why It's Not About Money

 Being an Artist - Why It's Not About Money


Who is the artist, plastic surgeon, craftsman, and craftsman?


Artist - A person who creates products for a company. Two examples are graphic designers and book illustrators.

Fine Artist - inherited a talent for creating original, visual, and beautiful artistic objects for aesthetic values. Examples include oil paintings and hand carvings.

Independent artisans creating beauty and utility projects. Examples include a glassblower or a carpet maker.

Craftsman - Repeats utilitarian things as a trader or craftsman. Examples: carpenters build houses, and merchants make furniture.

People often use these words as they please, not by definition. The misuse of these words is confusing.

The most important thing for any artist or craftsman is a profitable business. Plastic artists have a lucrative business during booming economies. Their creations are original or unique and the price will be high. People with disposable income buy non-essential works of art.

The craftsman reproduces the utilitarian art and type of work throughout the year, regardless of the economy. People need houses, clothes, shoes, tools, vehicles, furniture, and more than owning original jewelry, statues, or oil paintings. Artists and craftspeople must be entrepreneurs and work as sole proprietors or work under a contract. Craftsmen or traders work for wages in large companies.


Why do artists and artisans struggle to earn money?


1. They don't talk about money because it's rude or unimportant.

2. There is a lack of financial sense, interest, status, or money management

3. Money is considered the root of all evil.

4. The creation of works of art or crafts is more important.

5Love, preservation of the planet, and world peace are more important. As for money, it is not important.

6. Families and communities make them uncomfortable as artists. They appear to be playing and not lacking in commercial value.

7. Money is not important and they don't seem to have it to understand its value.

8. Lack of money or financial knowledge and an understanding of how money works. Feeling worthless or ashamed of not making money.

9. Afraid of making money.

10. People consider artists to be poor and struggling; Those who believe in it, are.

11. Feeling uncomfortable asking for money.

12. It is not clear how to price the topic or how to sell it.

13. Lack of self-confidence and not knowing our worth.

14. Harsh criticism of our work because we see flaws in our industry. We cannot see or understand that buyers see the beauty or personal use of the product; Its flaws are not.

15. It is not very comfortable to sell some of our creativity, which makes us feel like we have put a price on ourselves and sold our souls to Satan.

16. Undercharging the price of an item so you don't look greedy.

17. Poor negotiating skills with potential clients.

18. Hate or hate preparing paperwork associated with recording our profits, expenses, income tax forms, and other financial affairs-related matters.

These attitudes, concerns, or lack of knowledge will prevent artists and artisans from making comfortable use of their talents and skills.
