Introducing Artist Day Jobs, a new series in which we’ll explore how artists and musicians are making a living to support their talents. Know an artist with an interesting day job? Email us at mnoriginal@tpt.org.

In 2005, Anna Tsantir had a full-time arts administration gig and no time for her art. She decided there had to be a way of making a living that also supported her true passion — and so Anna foundedĀ Two Bettys Green Cleaning Service, the eco-friendly house cleaning company she now runs. While Anna no longer cleans houses herself, she has 28 “Bettys” on staff, all of them artists, musicians, or healers.
