You seem to have questions. Here are some answers.

I like to paint! I designed this site when I was taking a watercolor painting class and decided to use some of my technique practice as the aesthetic for this site, since, well, it’s cheaper than stock photos.
Unfortunately, I can’t help you there. Only you can get yourself a job.
No. As a freelancer, pitching your story and researching publications best fit for it is your job; please don’t ask other people to do the leg work for you. (I weirdly get asked this question a lot and I don’t like it.)
That being said, every publication looks for different things in the pitches they accept. I would love to offer (paid) pitching workshop services in the future, however, that is a long way down the road.
Available right now, though, are Study Hall‘s great resources for pitching. Use them!
