another aspect to consider is that you must separate yourself from those
“artists” that have a CNC router. . . . . . (I call them “fabricators” – not artists).
any teenager today can put a nice design into a computer and spit a very nice mahogany carving.
with the significant price drops, the average everyday handyman can buy a CNC router
and operate it off of his/her kitchen table and call themselves a “dimensional carver”
and sell his work at a fraction of the cost of your similar work.
so you must think outside of the box in your area of expertise to grab the attention
of any potential clients that will buy your work.

like said above – no matter how good you think you are, there is always the competition
that will sell similar work for half the price you are asking.
you have to find that “niche” that will put your work in a smaller, more desirable category.

good luck in your ventures !!
