002: Increasing your net-worth by investing in your network; ft painter Jerrell Gibbs

Jerrell is a Baltimore based fine artist. A childhood desire for art was held captive until his 20’s. At that point painting quickly became his vocation. After making the bold decision to make art his business, he stepped away from two jobs so that he could get his first formal artistic training at Maryland Institute of College Art.


The Artist Maker is a movement to sustain and strengthen creative producers. Too often talented artists struggle to make a living because they haven’t been trained in how to run a business. We explore the business side of art by interviewing professional artists to discover how they develop and operate their enterprises. Each guest shares the strategies they have learned through success and sometimes failure in making art their business.
