Lotus mudra

As an artist, I've found it very difficult to develop the skill of promoting and selling my work. I think this is something many artists struggle with and why so many of us never get anywhere. Sometimes it can be a lack of confidence ("why would anyone be interested in my stuff...?) but often it can be a dislike of self promotion. Somehow, somewhere, someone gave the art of putting yourself out there and promoting your work a bad name, but really its just in how you do it.

 

I've learned by making my work known, by putting it "out there", I get to do more of it and the more places people can see my work the more it gets seen. And if all goes well when having a public exhibition and I sell my work, it helps me afford to make more of it.

 

And now here's the part where I tell you the two places online where my work can be purchased:

rashe.etsy.com

rachaela.imagekind.com

 

I have just uploaded a fresh batch of small metal prints to etsy, featuring a selection of holga tree photos from my exhibition at Radha Yoga in October. And on Imagekind I have made some of my photoshop image manipulations available as prints. Please do check them out.
