art & business books

9 books that have helped me grow my art business

growing my art business hasn't been easy...there is so much to do as an artist...marketing and social media, accounting that never ends, updates to my website, creating new blog posts, prepping for shows and markets (my to do list could go for days, but i'll spare you!)....this doesn't even include motherhood duties....this can leave me very little time to create my art! 

without much free time, i'm always looking for ways to learn and improve my business. below are my favorite books that have helped me grow my art business in 2020.
