  • My husband. He is always out there talking up my artwork, giving out my website and I can always count on him to heavily promote my upcoming events. He’s the best, I’m very blessed to have him!

  • My blog, my website, my husband, my friends, my family, people who have previously bought my work?

  • My mum … Mum owns a wine agency … Wine & art really go well together … I was able to get my hands on the last two cases of Bisol Prosecco for a grand opening of a gallery last summer … The art was sort of ok (I only had three pieces & I used a little too much cold wax with the oils…oops), but the bubbly was fantastic…Also, I borrow mum’s mailing list when stuck for guests…

  • are probably one of my biggest promoters, and discovered artists are doing a bit as well. I would really like a bricks and mortar gallery too though!

  • Marge, my wife, is really good at helping me keep things going with people. Blogging is time consuming but she is good to help keep me active and a viable part of communicating with others. When we do art shows we are in them together. Working this next year on a gallery will be a new goal. In this whole promotional process I’m finding time to paint and put miles and miles on my brushes.

    When I first started my custom ceramic tile business I was taken on by a woman who owned a wonderful gallery and tile shop. For 25 years she was mentor, friend, promoter and more. She introduced me to the other shop owners I work with, took me to the national tile show, advertised my work in full page ads in design magazines, etc. Without her I may still have had a business but not the business I have today. Thanks to Elaine, this very cool lady! All young artists should have such wonderful mentors!
