Last year was my best year yet. I truly believe one of the reason is because I embraced the mindset of bringing my collectors artwork from me that is as authentically me as I can.
In a competitive art market, it's essential for artists to stand out from the crowd and capture the attention of our collectors. While technical skills and artistic talent are important, there's something even more compelling that can make collectors gravitate towards your artwork: OUR UNIQUENESS!!! In this short blog, I wanted to explore why I feel it is important to be unique as an artist.
