Artists websites, are they important?
Many times I see this questioned asked on forums. In my opinion simply answered is yes most definitely.
Your website is your virtual business card.
If you are serious about showcasing your work and getting it out then this is a great place to start!
When you have your own website you are the creator, and can make it look and act just how you want.
When listing on other market or gallery sites, you have to adhere to their rules, with your own website, you make the rules! Your website should be the first place you go to, your place of work, your virtual gallery and storefront.
Drive traffic to your website and build your client list and make those sales!
