Are you putting sketching your latest idea infront of preparing your dinner?

I feel like things are finally starting to happen in my little world of art in terms of making more steps to becoming a full-time artist but it has been a long and busy road!

For those of you who are aspiring to a career as a self-employed artist, juggling a real job (I'm also a teaching assistant and full-time mum) you will know that it is really hard going at times and you can spread yourself very thinly. Inevitably you have to burn the candle at both ends, you may struggle to get organised, put sketching your latest idea infront of cooking tea (!), perhaps you are devoting more time to your craft than to your family and friends?...Sound familiar?

I will be writing more about these issues soon so do check back!

Anyone have any thoughts or feelings on this topic? I would love to hear from you so please feel free to comment
