How Much Average Artist Make?  

An average U.S. artist makes anywhere from $10,000 to $ 35,000 per year.

Most artists don't make enough to live on, so they have to work in addition to hustling as a freelancer.  This can be hard at times, especially when you try to keep your studio full-time.

Many artists do not have the luxury of an income that supports their art, so they partner with others to create successful campaigns.

Some artists are lucky enough to be supported by their spouses or other sources of income, but most struggle to fund themselves.

Some artists are lucky and work hard enough to get picked up by good galleries and patrons who will appreciate their art.
