I have lived and worked (as an English teacher) in Taiwan for a handful of years.
I am, however, an artist and would like to return my focus to this career.
As I have come to love Taiwan and living here, I am wondering if and how it would be possible to live here and pursue my artwork.
Furthermore, would it also be possible to have a dual work permit while I build up my art career? (practically speaking, continuing to teach as I relaunch my art career would be a realistic - and hopefully short-term - way to ensure paying the bills.)
These is my initial questions and I welcome any advice or knowledge you could share.
(I envision the income from my artwork being a combination of sales of original work - direct or gallery related, freelancing, and perhaps merchandising some images. My background includes years of exhibits, mostly DIY/small scale, and a BA in studio arts from an American college. I’ve been a somewhat active in Taiwan, but I’m afraid those experiences would count against me in any application/effort to get a visa, as they occured without official approval )
