An Artist uses their skills to create pieces for sale or for public viewing. You might specialise in a particular kind of artwork such as paintings and drawings or sculptures and 3D models. You may use traditional media or make use of specific items such as recycled materials. An Artist will usually come up with their own designs but you may be commissioned to produce a particular piece of work for a buyer. Artists often hold exhibitions of their work or display their pieces for purchase either online or at a gallery or public space.
Being an Artist requires creativity and imagination but you’ll also need skill and talent in your chosen artistic field. You’ll have to be able to collaborate with other artists or with people and organisations who are commissioning your work. It’s important that you can communicate and you should be able to manage several artistic projects at one time.
