Promoting yourself and your work

As a personal thing that I love doing, I find going to the park and being creative helps the mind body and soul to be relaxed. Being relaxed and being in a relaxing environment brings out the creativity from within.

During the summer months I find myself in almost any park I can find in Birmingham, England. Currently it’s summer, the world cup is on tv, everyone is excited like I am.

Every park you go to is filled with people trying to grab a piece of the sunshine, as an artist this is also a fantastic way to promote yourself and your work. Many times I just visit to draw or create something from nature and find I end up promoting my work, getting jobs, answering questions talking to people, networking and drawing people on the spot etc.

Furthermore, because I am always with my camera, I am always taking fantastic photographs of our beautiful nature that we sometimes don’t even realise exists until we take just a little time from our sofa’s.

I addition promoting your art can be very time consuming and may even feel horrible for people who are starting out in art promoting. I would say try going out meeting people and networking, it is one of the best and most effective ways of getting recognised. It is hands on and direct, people see you and what you are offering. There are many other ways to promote and I will never dispute that fact, just imaging you being there as the face for your artwork, you’re seen by many and you can get alot of business this way, just have a few business cards and leaflets at your finger tips because potential customers will need to contact you.

Just make use of the sunshine and our beautiful outdoors, go out and promote your business, it worked for me and can work for you too.

This honesty will benefit you in the long run. Find more information about my work on:
