The impact on artist's career during and after the Covid pandemic
The pandemic greatly impacted the creative sector. While some were able to find opportunities within these tumultuous times, most of them had to suffer a lot professionally and financially. In our interviews, some artists even stated that they found the time more testing for them after the pandemic, that is the recovery stage. What are your views on this? What challenges did you face during the pandemic, and are the challenges harder during the recovery stage? Please share your thoughts.

@j-poort My challenges during the pandemic were attenuated by the fact that I have used my time to document on further viable paths to monetize my work already completed. I have explored more in depth site building as well as online shop and the possible approaches that entail from there. As my income was not dependent on selling paintings- albeit my aim would be to create a reasonable living only from selling my artworks - the pandemic has had only an indirect impact on me, personally.
As the now moment is in discussion, I have yet to decide on my approach, as individual artist, self representing, counting the complexities and perplexities of wanting to create - which is a strong drive I have, but not wanting to be visible as I whish to keep private as well myself not being an edorser of advertisement, magazines, marketing etc.
