Nick’s Answer

If you are interested in a professional career you should consider an education in Graphic Design. It's easy to take for granted but the appearance of everything you see such as printed literature, signs, labels and even this website was designed by a graphic designer. There is also the field of Industrial Design which covers the aesthetic design of products from simple objects such as coffee cups and on up to automobiles, even airplanes. Every object you see and use including your computer needed and Industrial Designer to help design it.
Be aware that while the writers and techies are making the content and products work, it takes an artistic and aesthetic eye to make the product beautiful and interesting.

For example, organizations prefer to have a design language where all of their products, packaging, literature, websites, etc. are integrated so users and customers recognize them as related. It take artistic talent to establish the basis of this look and to integrate it across everything. New products are being added all the time. The language also evolves over time or sometimes is completely overhauled to a new look. There's plenty of work out there.

There's a lot of artistic talent out there so that means a lot of competition. A formal education is necessary to get a good job in this very large field, however there are also many jobs.

It's great that you seem to have the necessary talent and interest in art. The next step is to acknowledge that there's also a lot to learn and pursue it. The good news is that many people have had good careers supporting good lives with their artistic talent.

Yana’s Answer

Consider such career paths: illustrator, professional artist, graphic designer.
After studies you can also teach as full or part time art/design teacher.
All of these options have great opportunities for remote and freelance work as well, if you don't like meeting much with strangers and people you don't know.
