Gallery representation certainly doesn't come easily for most artists...it is a challenge doing the door knocking and requesting appointments to see busy gallery owners to promote work. I dare say most artists dont like it one bit, we're a reclusive bunch who would rather be painting than marketing!
I've resisted direct selling from my website for years, because I wasn't sure how galleries would feel about that, but this month I made the decision that I will do what I can. After all, the prices remain the same either way. Why should I care more about what galleries think? I have decided to add purchase buttons to my website in order to make it easy for people to buy if they like what they see.
Of course, I am always open to contact and very happy to show work 'in person' to anyone who wants to see it. Contact me anytime to make an appointment.
