Artist Marketing Tip:
I have been recently asked how I became an "international artist working directly with interior designers". Answer, I worked hard on it. For example, I was contacted by a large design firm in Washington D.C. that was developing a new retirement center here in Jacksonville. They contacted me through http://www.jaxartist.com/. Another firm contacted me through the Collier County Art Alliance in Naples Florida. Getting the idea? Join as many associations and websites that you can afford. AND still work with the galleries! They are still worth the commissions and their representation. We need them and they need us! Now go create!
