Depends upon what is meant by "Practicing" Being an artists does not
mean one has to exhibit or sell works. Being an artist is
participating in the arts. The question is then probably is the art
"Good" in the terms of public acclaim or is it mediocre. I know
people who claim to be artists and produce work for public viewing but
the standard is appalling and then there are those who produce
brilliant work purely for self satisfaction.(and visa vesa.)
