This is the 10th collection of artists from the artist spotlight, which means that 100 artists have been featured here so far. We would like to take this opportunity to thank every one of you. The response that we have gotten for the artist interviews has been phenomenal! This has become a major part of Artpromotivate and will continue to be.

For this collection of modern contemporary artists, we have asked them what they expected for their art careers in the future (10 years). Included are their replies to this question.

I would like to stay connected with fans, other artists and the community (teach). I also think it’s important to have artwork at different price points so that it is available to everyone. Oh yeah…a larger studio would be great!”
