How do artists find their niche?

One of the most pressing unanswered questions for artists, photographers, and artisans is “how do I find my niche?” Why do some artists become famous and others do not, despite their talent?

By re-examining art history, you’ll learn how artists have determined their niche through “The Four-Part Code” created by artist and entrepreneur Ann Rea. Then we’ll apply the code to three emerging artists, maybe just like you.
