Vicky Faye Aquino is NOT a starving artist. Far from it. Her artworks were snapped up by foreign ambassadors and political figures. I should know because I witnessed it!
Being talented is not enough for an artist to survive, let alone thrive. Vicky’s successful exhibits were not accidental at all, because she carefully prepared for them.
Lesson for artists: hone your entrepreneurial skills, not just your artistic talent. Ignoring the business side of art will bring you closer to starvation. Sad but true.
