The reasons are many and varied, but at the end of the day we are a small island, with just over 500,000 people.
Not all artists I know have a website. They choose to sell their work through exhibitions, representation in galleries or by word of mouth.
Websites are generally not cheap to establish, especially if you choose a third party to do the setting up and maintenance. Some are suitably skilled and motivated to do the task themselves.
My website was established in 2007 and has served me well, but it’s very much out-dated. I need a new, fresh site, one that I can maintain myself.
I have enlisted the help of web guru Chris Ikin and have charged him with the task of building me a site, one that I can look after and regularly update. I want a site that contains my 2 blogs, galleries, sales and updates about my work and the classes I conduct.
It’s early days, but we have made a start.
The cover page, or website face is very important. Today I have featured one idea that I have.
I hope that my new site will be up and running in a few weeks.
