    When it's hung in a gallery with a fancy price tag generally nails it.

    I found when I was selling for a reasonable price (for me anyways) not many were sold. When I boosted my prices I was selling more.....Go figure. Got that idea from a professional painter who owns a shop.

    Public health researcher, physicist, philosopher, photographer, husband, father. If I happen to create something transformative then I'll add artist.

    "Starving Artist" = "Hobbyist".

    Simple answer. Both. I don't think I'm an artist, but some people do. Fine. Doesn't change a darned thing.

    The last time I spent 20-30 hours a week on photography, I was unemployed (happily). If artist = unemployed, so be it.
