I need a list of 15 female artists with businesses similar to this: https://pencilneck.com/
Hi, thanks for your question about female artists with businesses similar to Owen Garratt's The Pencilneck. The short answer is that there are several female artists that have businesses and revenues of over six-figures. Websites like Business Insider, Bustle, and Forbes provided significant results because of their reporting on successful entrepreneurs. Below you will find a list of these women and a brief description of them and their business.
I found these women by looking into successful artists with the specific revenue that was requested. Women that I came across in my research were left off the list if they were not artists, if their revenues were private or unavailable, or if their businesses do not bring in at least six-figures. Income that was shaky or uncertain was verified through Hoover's, Owler, Manta, or DataFox.
