Make a career out of being a professional artist.

Fran Meneses (aka @frannerd), a Chilean self-taught Illustrator now based in New York, found success in the art world. Discover her journey on how she went from struggling in London with no work and virtually no money to how she managed to shatter the “poor artist” trope. Over the last few years, she’s established a strong and loyal following with her inspiring stories, quirky character, amazing illustrations and wealth of knowledge (and her willingness to share it).

She gets real on her YouTube Channel about financial advice, self-care, how to grow your career as an artist, how to deal with professional dissatisfaction and a range of other personal and professional topics.
