Artists have a special set of requirements when it comes to websites and its often hard to find a set of services that suit as we often don’t fit into conventional “shape” of what a website “has to have”.
Having a easy to use system for managing & displaying your art out to your current and potential collectors is really important, but one area that is often overlooked when putting a site together is making sure its tailored YOUR needs and YOUR capabilities as an artist and a business owner. There is no point in having all the bells and whistles if that’s something that you will never have the time or inclination to update, use or take advantage of – let alone if your customers actually want that when looking / purchasing your art.
My name is Belinda Lindhardt you can read more about me here > . As i am an artist myself, I understand many of the challenges artists face when getting a website and as a small business owner i also understand how important it is to have a process that works for you. It’s also crucial to have someone you can rely on to help you out when you need it and hence here are my services for Artists.
