Fine Art/earning a living


    My question is, can a portrait artist earn a decent living in this day and age?

Hi Pam

My honest answer will be that it is not possible. Very few people make a living of this since the demand for portraits have declined to almost no demand.

If you have artistic skills I advice you to go to art school or at least to try to master other stylistic areas than portraits.

I have been a collector for several years.

I have studied art on my own for as long as I can remember.
