Terry Brooks
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Painter for more than fifty years. Attended Shepy International School of Art, Nova Scotia School of Art and Design and Vancouver School of Art. Author of "Be a painter"…
Be a painter: make images by hand in the 21st century.

A passion for the arts such as painting, writing, pottery, dancing and music is very common and, as well, the ardent hope that one’s efforts will be enthusiastically received by open wallets. In reality, very few artists succeed in supporting themselves via their art. The vast majority of artists ride the emotional roller coaster of the joy of creation and the disappointment of few sales in an indifferent market. This book counsels artists about the patience needed to develop their talent, persevere in the face of indifference, manage the economics of art production, market art products and recognize artistic success.
