Many of the artists here at AFI have full time day jobs in addition to their art work business. Below are just a small portion of the artists at AFI who do something else for their day job.
Michelle James - I work full time in IT and full time in Art Shows - she uses both sides of the brain.
Patricia Manus - My husband and I are both in IT for our day jobs - about as far removed from art as you can get!
Donna Jadis - I’m also a musician, actress, singer, and fiction writer - as well as being a technical writer for IT security during the week.
Jeffrey W. Boswell - I am a musician/music teacher learning to be comfortable in the visual arts.
Jennifer Mary Xerri - I am also a Dj!
Kim Shirley - I work part time at an ice cream shop...one of the coolest jobs I have ever had(and so much fun!)
Yes, Kim, your job sounds fun!
Brittany Bindrim - I am the vocalist and song writer for the band I:Scintilla.
Look up Brittany's band. I googled it and found lots of info on her band.
Cathie Shaffer - My dad gave me a typewriter and a sewing machine for Christmas one year and I now use BOTH. I do medical transcription (typing) by day and bridal accessories by night. I designed costumes for our theatre group in our area for 10 years
Mary Jo Gardere - I’m a 30 year veteran elementary art teacher finally attempting to market my own art work. Hoping to be successful enough to finally quit my “day job”!
Sue Cadamagnani - In college, I sold dog tags door-to-door.
I love the way Ilona describes her jobs. Sounds like a great Life slogan.
Ilona Pileika - Graphic designer by education, jewelry artist by heart, meat market owner by husband.
What job are you juggling during the day to keep yourself afloat while you get established in the art fair business?
