Canton, OH, April 27, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Artist Kelli Swan has published her second book, “From Creating Art to Creating Income - Marketing Tips for the Visual Artist.” A collection of art marketing tips, this handbook is designed to help emerging artists market and sell their own artwork.
A professional artist for over 25 years, Kelli specializes in detailed pencil drawings depicting various themes. Her artwork has won many awards in prestigious juried art shows. In addition, her drawings have been published on magazine covers, special event program covers and in a variety of publications. Kelli’s original works reside in collections in Europe, The United Arab Emirates and The United States.
“How did you get started selling your artwork?” That is the question that inspired Kelli Swan to write this book. It is a question she has been asked by emerging artists many times over the years. It occurred to her that whether self-schooled or traditionally taught, most amateur artists have been taught little about how to generate income from their work.
This book contains a wealth of helpful tips, interwoven with life philosophy, and is designed to inform and inspire. Kelli covers traditional marketing methods such as art festivals and gallery shows along with modern e-commerce approaches to selling artwork like websites and online auctions. Packed full of helpful information, this book is sure to inspire any artist ready to take the plunge into “earned income” from his or her own creations.
Available from www.pencilplace.com, www.lulu.com, and www.amazon.com, the book has a soft cover and retails for $14.95. ISBN 978-0-6151-9645-9
