If I was single it would be pretty hard, but yes, I could get all my needs met (this would be like a small cheap apartment, no nice phone, biking everywhere, no cable, etc). Fortunately I don’t have to live just off my income, but I will say I’ve been doing this for about 2 years now and it honestly keeps getting better and better each month and each year. So in the future, I would easily be able to live just off mine.
Yup! I have a BFA in studio art with a minor in art history. School is expensive, but I busted my ass for scholarships. Art school helped me open my mind to more conceptual ideas as well as open me up to new mediums that I was too afraid to try (ceramics, jewelry making, printmaking, even watercolor!).
