How to Find Your Niche as an Artist
On behalf of TVLesson.com, my name is Jacklyn Laflamme and I'm a professional artist. Let's talk a little about finding your niche as an artist. I personally am an acrylic painter and I've been painting in the same style for the past ten years. What style would you like to paint in? Are you an illustrator? Are you a painter? Do you prefer watercolors, oil paints? These are all questions that you need to ask yourself. And if you're not sure, I recommend that you try to explore and use different mediums. One day you might want to get out your sketchbook and go to the park and you just start sketching trees. The next day you might want to grab your camera and start photographing them. Maybe you want to grab your watercolors and paint them.
Whatever you decide to do doesn’t necessarily mean that’s what you have to stick with. But the best thing when starting out as artist is to explore all the different mediums. And remember that there is no right or wrong when you're just working for yourself. Always remember to work from your heart. You can always add your head into it later. But you really need to a true artist works from his heart and his soul. So just go out there. Buy a bunch of different creative supplies and go crazy. If you want you can even just cut out magazines and do a collage. I mean it’s all considered art.
And as long as you’re enjoying doing it that’s the most important thing. And by exploring all these different mediums and all these different techniques, you truly will be able to find your niche. So keep in mind that art really is wide open. You are only limited by your own imagination. So let your imagination go and just have a great time and explore.
