Free Worldwide Shipping March 29, 2015 – Posted in: News – Tags: free, shipping
I am happy to announce that I can finally offer free worldwide shipping on all artwork.
When I set out ten years ago to self-promote my artwork, there were two main rules that I made for myself.
1.) Make the art that I want to make. (Search for my own artistic voice)
2.) Keep art accessible.
It is number 2 that speaks to Free Worldwide Shipping.
Art Is For Everyone
One of the things that has always bugged me about the “Art World” is how inaccessible and unapproachable it can feel to most people, most of the time.
Many of my friends have nothing to do with the arts. Many of them have never set foot in a gallery or have ever purchased an original piece of art. Some of them are hesitant to even go to a gallery opening, simply because of what think it going to be like.
Other comments that I hear often are related to the cost of art. With many people saying that is just too expensive for what you get in return. With most hard goods, you can quantify the value of what you are getting for your money. It isn’t quite that easy with art.
This is especially hard to quantify if you already are feeling uneasy about you relationship with art.
I don’t want to go into all the different aspects of these things. There are just too many variables to cover here, right now. Another post, perhaps?
With all said, ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to be an artist. It just felt normal. The art world carried no mystique to me. Ever since I was young, I knew that art is for everyone.
If free worldwide shipping helps encourage more people to enjoy artwork around the world, then I want to try and make that happen.
And I hope that it does.
