Amber MacGregor - Artist

Return to Blog

So I'm getting into the studio this week preparing for a couple of things. I have a show coming up in May at a local coffee shop and the Fernwood Art Stroll happens at the end of June. 


As usual I feel like I'm really leaving things to the last minute.


Being extra broke after two years plus of joblessness outside of my art practise has kind of put a damper on the kind of art I can make. That said I am incredibly fortunate to have an amazing husband who keeps us all afloat financially. I'm hoping he won't have to keep that up for too much longer all on his own. With that in mind I applied for a job a couple of weeks ago and went through the process of interviews and hiring and an initial orientation only to find that the whole thing really wasn't going to work for me in so many ways, not the least of which was the company itself.


After applying endlessly online for dead end job after dead end job and not even getting an interview it was actually refreshing to apply in person and get interviewed and hired even despite the fact that I decided not to keep the job.


I am grateful for everything that I am able to do despite my lack of funds. So thanks to all those that support me and my art making. My friends, family and those that have purchased my work.


Let me know if you've found a way to generate funds with your artwork, and how you find it's working for you. I would love to hear about any new ideas that I could latch onto and make some extra cash.


All the best!
