Welcome to The Part-Time Artist!

If you are a busy creative looking for advice, support and resources about how to develop your artistic career while having a day job, you are in the right place!

My name is Céline Terranova, and I have been a part-time writer for the past twenty years. It’s been a crazy ride, trying to make it work alongside a full-time job. I have made so many mistakes, but I have learned so much!

I’ve always felt like there wasn’t much help for people like me. I had to deal with the frustration of having a job-to-pay-the-bills while trying to build a creative career, and my dream seemed out of reach. Worse: there were many voices that told me to stop trying, that it wasn’t worth it. It was discouraging and depressing, and I wished I had someone to advise me otherwise.

This is why I have created The Part-Time Artist. I want to be this person for you. I want to help you believe in yourself, achieve your dreams and find happiness. Whether you are a writer, an illustrator, a performer, a musician, an entrepreneur, a designer, or any other kind of creative, I believe that you can benefit from the content of this website.

Start Here!

If you feel burned out, if you feel like giving up, if you can’t find the motivation to create or if you just want to know you are not alone in this, I have several options for you.

The first part of the Part-Time Artist project, the book, is available NOW:

Following the publication of the book, I will launch a podcast and a series of workshops on the same theme. More info on these projects soon!

Finally, the blog is updated every Tuesday and Friday, with subjects as varied as motivation, health, resources, reviews and business advice:

Is it too late to make it?

Is It Too Late To Make It?

Feeling like it is too late to make it is one of these paralysing thoughts that, as an artist, we need to get rid of. And it is not as easy as it seems.
