The idea for This Business of Art was born out of a desire to help artists create sustainable businesses around their art, by sharing what I have learnt over the past ten years. 

"I believe all professional artists need business skills. It's not something we were generally taught in art schools; so it took me a long time to make a living from my art. I want to make it easier for other artists by sharing my experiences, so I've written a book to help artists build a business around their art." - Hannah Blackmore​
