Not only do artists need to be creative with their work – they need to be creative in how they fund it. An artist’s financial strategy is shaped by their personality, preferences, personal philosophies, and by the work itself. Sometimes the strategy is a space – somewhere you can always come back to. And sometimes it is a faith in the bounty of the universe.
