Meet Iris Scott, a Brooklyn based Oil Finger Painting Artist since 2009; dedicated to creating and building a business that stays true to her vision. Iris is an artist who creates from Joy. In our conversation she shares her journey that began with a year of making art in Tawain, selling paintings for $150 to selling them 9 years later for $50,000. We talk about everything from what it means to "make Art for Art's Sake" the movement towards collecting Joyful Art, how to connect with your collector's, how not to be an Art Brat and what it takes to become a Thriving Artist in today's possibility filled marketplace.

"Go practice, just go make stuff and focus on what's working and make more of it. And you will inevitably innovate in ways no other human has innovated in that specific thing." - Iris Scott
