Barbara Derrick, an Indigenous Tsilhqot'in artist and businesswoman, is challenging the long-held 'starving artist' cliché by showing that art can be a successful career with the right sales strategy, pricing, marketing, body and tonal language. She has seen her artists go from zero to bust by following her guidance and now have financial independence and recognition. Barbara is showing that it is possible to make a living from art and is dispelling the myth of the 'starving artist.'
