When working as an artist, setting up a business or having an already well established one, you need to get yourself out there. People aren’t going to see our art work if it stays in the spare room or a drawer at the back of the house. It doesn’t mean we have to go crazy, do it all now, go into drive or a mission, but we do need to put ourselves out there and be prepared for rejection.
Not everyone will like our work, but everyone will buy, not every gallery will say yes. But the first steps are to contact galleries, shops, coffee shops, look locally then expand. Enter exhibitions ( keep an eye on closing dates, I just missed one by days, whoops learning there) places where there is potential in showing your work.
