How did you get where you are? For all you professional artists …

When did you decide or realise that you were a working artist and that this is what you are going to do for the rest of your life?   Did you actively seek a gallery to represent/exhibit your work from the get go, or how did you get started in the actual BUSINESS of being a paid working artist?  Did you fall into it without much effort, or was it a long struggle?  Do you feel that an ‘artist statement’ is vital to defining and helping people understand your work?   Why?

If you would like to expand on this topic on your own blog/website, would you please let me know in the comments below – as I’d be very interested to read your thoughts.
