Despite the name of this website, I am not a starving artist. You shouldn’t be one either. It is possible to live a life of financial stability while pursuing your artistic goals. It just takes a little bit of work. Or a lot, depending on your needs and goals. Whether you are a musician, painter, sculptor, poet or writer, the life of the artist is supposed to be about freedom. The creative life doesn’t feel so free when it is saddled with debt.
This Starving Artist site is intended to be a guide for all aspiring artists regardless of what medium or discipline they are involved in. It seeks to provide information, advice and inspiration on how to live a life pursuing your creative freedom while doing more than simply surviving. This guide will offer information on how to make a budget and stick to it, how to save and invest, maybe even buy a house and provide for your family. It can be done and the Starving Artists Guide can help.
