Nowadays, most people buy online, so I love having the opportunity to meet people face to face. I find it really important to show my work in person too, as you can see the quality of the work, and get an idea about how it will look in your home. I’ve learned a lot about what works for me and my customers over time, but in this post, I thought I’d share my favourite tips!
Here at Wendy Laverick Art we love meeting new customers and finding out which item they're interested in. It can also be really inspiring to meet fellow artists on the other stalls and is a good motivator to produce new work.
Setting up a stall at a market can be great fun. Selling your work online is brilliant but there is no replacement for a really good on-line review compared to a face-to-face complement.
There’s lots of things to think about when setting up your first stall. Over time I will be trying different markets, and I’ve developed a system that works for me.
If you can’t come to view my artwork in person, please take a look at the pictures on my website and hopefully you will find that I have captured the beauty of your favorite wildlife perfectly.
As an artist, it's so exciting to have your art on display at an arts and crafts fair. Not only is it a great way of selling my work, but meeting new people and chatting to existing customers can be really inspirational too.
The great thing about the internet is it’s always open. You can be online 24/7 and customers who are looking for similar items can find you. Some people love to shop online as they don’t have the time to go to a market or gallery, others prefer meeting real people who have a story to tell and have made your work with their own hands, rather than buying an item that has been mass produced by middlemen and high street shops.
If you would love to sell your art at a farmers market, then it is well worth doing. I have found getting out of the comfort zone of your home can really be refreshing. We are very lucky to live in an area full of like minded people who appreciate this kind of thing.
My nature paintings are inspired by the beautiful scenery of the Cotswolds where I live and work. The rich textures, and bright colours are captured on sheets of paper using layers of acrylic paints or ink and watercolour.
My artwork is a part of my story and passion, which is available as framed canvas prints, framed prints for the living room, kitchen, dining room, or any room. I derive huge satisfaction that my imagination of the natural world is placed on canvas for all to enjoy!
