Day 17 - Customers and Feedback
Customers are what it's all about! Without my collectors I'd never be able to justify the amount of time and effort and money I put into my artwork. I'd definitely still paint, but I wouldn't enjoy it as much. I like to be purposeful with my work and painting for others motivates me to continually improve.
I love the idea that my paintings are now dotted around the UK and some live as far away as Japan. Without my collectors I'd have a huge pile of them in my loft or garage which would be such a waste! I'm a firm believer that if you make art you should work hard to share it with the world.
Art is such an important part of our culture. It helps to define a moment of time and is nearly always life enhancing. People who buy art from living artists are helping to keep the magic of the creative sector alive and are helping to create history. Can you tell that I think art collectors and supporters are wonderful?!
