Join Illustrator Cath Garvey to learn how to set up your art business, handle social media, and ways to make money.


Are you starting as a freelance artist? Do you want some help figuring out how to get yourself out there and finding people to pay you for your work? Then join "HELP! Starting Up as a Freelance Artist" on Zoom.

Cath Garvey is a UK Freelance Illustrator who has learned from scratch how to promote herself, get work, and what to do when there is no work. At the start, Cath had little knowledge about how to start her art business, prompting her to create "HELP! Starting Up as a Freelance Artist" which is for any artist who needs help getting their work out there. She has worked in comics, with the community, and in animation.
