You've probably been told again and again that artists aren't good at business, but what if it's not your fault? What if the problem is in the way we think of art as a business? French-American queer humanist painter and art blogger Gwenn Seemel will share how independent artists actually make money, using her own 18 year career as an example and providing a multitude of practical tips for getting paid while making art.
Since 2003, Gwenn Seemel has made her living as an independent artist, with her work being featured on sites like Hyperallergic, Boing Boing, Newsweek, and Bust. Born in Saudi Arabia in 1981, Gwenn has lived most of her life in France and in the US.
