How is the Web Changing the Life of Artists?

Have you noticed how online sales are changing the life and work of artists around the world? Today you can find artists selling their work directly on sites like Ebay or Etsy. In the past, some of these lesser known artists may have had the opportunity to sell work at a local or regional exhibit or craft fair. Now they are able to showcase their work to the world. I am fascinated by how is creating opportunities for folk artist in all parts of the world, allowing them to sell their work at a price that is reasonable but far more than they may have gotten locally. How is this changing or affirming the vocation of artist in the 21st century?
