I'm a juried and lifetime member of EBSQ Self Representing Artists. Honestly without them, I don't believe I would have come this far as an artist. Now don't get me wrong, I feel that creating art is a journey. I don't think you "arrive", I think you constantly grow. However, the collaboration of other artists there, helped me not to be afraid of who I am. Their support, both with my business and art questions, has totally had a positive impact on my life and work. If you are creating art, join some sort of collaborative. You need people whom you can relate with and relay questions to.
Right now they have just updated the EBSQ web page. They're working on getting out all of the "bugs" and have been doing a fantastic job. I'm so thankful for places like EBSQ where artists like me can learn, grow, and even contribute.
