When it comes to the creative professions, everyone wants to do them. So you have to work harder than most to be successful. Itís very competitive. If itís your passion, you're going to like working hard. Itís not all about wearing a beret, eating cheese and drinking wine. All the successful artists Iíve met along the way are workaholics. They work all the time. You really have to hustle. [...]

The difference between painting and art is that art connects with a deeper sense of truth about who you are. When you see a piece of art, you instantly feel that youíve known it forever. It connects you with a truth about yourself. Thatís what I aim for with my art. [...]

Collectors donít just buy art, they buy the story behind the art and the artistís story. So tell that story and tell it authentically. Feeling inspired? Share that. Feeling frustrated? Share that, too. The more you reveal about yourself and your creative process, the more likely youíll keep collectors engaged. [...]

Artist Spotlight: Keiko Tanabe

by Dave Geada on 10/21/2015 7:03:14 AM

Because of my previous work experience, I valued the importance of marketing from the beginning and I believed that should be one of the top priorities for success as an artist. I met artists who were either hesitant to market themselves or had no clue how to do it. I also heard that they donít teach the business side of art at an art school. But the reality of a working artist is that you have to think seriously about how to make a living with art and be willing to spend time to make it happen. [...]

The Best Way to Sell Your Art Through Search Engines

by Dave Geada on 3/25/2015 7:53:37 AM

You shouldnít waste time creating long lists of keywords you want to target and writing a lot of content packed with those keywords in blog posts designed to get good search engine rankings. And you shouldnít spend an inordinate amount of time setting up links between your website and other websites you think might help your search engine rankings. What you should focus on instead is making sure your website shows up first when collectors search for you by name (which is actually a lot easier to pull off than these other examples). [...]
