I have been enjoying making my art since 2006, but there was something missing in my development as an artist. Most of my artists friends talked about this, and I finally got the courage to take a workshop about "The business of Art."
Learning how to market myself and my art has been a confusing and scary journey, but I learned to enjoy doing it as much as I love making my art.
I am always looking to find more information about marketing and self-promotion. I am so happy to share with you this wonderful book, I'd Rather Be in the Studio!" by Alyson B. Stanfield. Alyson is a great communicator and coach in self-promotion, her book is filled with great tips and guidance.
If you are growing as an artist and your work is being accepted better and better, this is a great book you must have to learn how to self-promote your work.
These are some of her ideas in the book that I really like:
"No one is going to magically appear in your studio, wave a shimmering wand, and give you the success you want in your art career. You have to get out of the studio and make it happen." ~Alyson Stanfield
"In order to have a successful career, you should be able to define yourself and your art in a sea of artist. To do this, you must first find your style."
~ Alyson Stanfield
