The Billfold (a funny and readable site about money-management) interviewed an artist and nonprofit worker about her finances. They covered everything from student debt and spending habits to studio rent and familial contributions. Margaret, the interviewee, works at a nonprofit to support her career as a sculptor and candidly discusses how she manages money. It’s eye-opening to see how she balances her work and her finances.
As a soon-to-be art graduate I worry about career choices and about money. This addressed so many of my questions and makes it clear that EVERYONE worries about these things. If you’re an aspiring artist or current art student I would recommend this as a must read!
