Is it possible to make a living doing freelance coding?

I am very inexperienced in coding. I have messed with basic languages like html and others but that’s really it. I have always wondered if it would really be possible to teach your self code and make a living off it? Specifically coding and designing phone apps, websites, and maybe even softwares. But is this really something you can do freelance? And if it is, what do clients look for in a freelance coder? And what’s the best way to teach my self? And would it actually be possible to make enough income off freelance alone? Sorry if this is a very newbie question, but I am interested in learning more about code, and have wondered this for a long time. I tried to post this in a coding subreddit specifically but of course did not meet the requirements for whatever reason.
