Article SummaryX

Being a freelance artist gives you control of your own work and commissions without being tied down to one client. However, you’ll have to manage your own time and your income can be unstable. It’s generally a good idea to start by getting experience working for others or building an impressive portfolio before you search for clients. Then, you’ll need to register as a business, since you’ll be in charge of your finances. If you don’t have the right equipment and technology, like paints, pencils, and a drawing tablet, you’ll need to purchase those too. Since you’ll be working for yourself, you’ll also need a studio space either in your home or in a rented office space. For more tips, including how to find clients as a freelance artist, read on!
