Know Your Budget
One of the most common challenges artists face is setting prices for their work. Many artists are uncertain about how much they need to earn to cover their living expenses and bills each month. This uncertainty can lead to arbitrary pricing decisions that don’t reflect the true value of their art. To establish a reliable pricing structure, it’s crucial to know precisely what you need to make ends meet and calculate your overhead. By understanding your financial requirements and having a consistent approach to pricing, you ensure that your art not only sustains your livelihood but also respects both you and your customers. This mathematical approach not only prevents burnout but also conveys confidence in your pricing when communicating with potential buyers.
