Here I will be providing help and discussing ways for you to find artwork. For many people, this can be an overwhelming challenge. And since choosing art is such a personal process, it’s easy to start feeling lost and alone. Something I hear time and time again from my customers is that they are looking to fill a wall space in their home with the perfect thing – but for the life of them just can’t seem to find it!
I am here to offer my thoughts.
There are basically two categories of art – original artwork and reproductions. (I should note here that since I am a painter and have far less experience with 3 dimensional art, I will mainly be focusing on 2 dimensional art within the relevant sections of Advice From An Artist)
Original artwork could mean an oil painting, a hand-pulled lithograph or etching, a watercolor, a mixed media – basically anything that the artist made by hand. The price is set by the artist and so can vary greatly, but original artwork is typically more expensive than its reproductive counterpart.
In order to reach a wider audience, artists often choose to create reproductions of their art. They may market the reproductions themselves, use a publisher, or both. There is a wide spectrum of quality when it comes to art reproduction, which we will discuss in detail within the pages of this site.
Getting some help deciding which of these is right for you is the purpose of this site and I very much look forward to working with you!
