As many of you know, I very much need a shed at Tiny House Ontario. In order to build this, I need to raise some funds. I decided in the winter that I would try to up my income, by bringing prints of my work to the historic Springer Market Square in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. BUT in oder to do this I had to buy a car… a 1999 Golf… and is in the shop now getting a $400 repair done. So much for earning. So far, I pay rent at the market and I am not quite breaking even… but with the car repair and gas… tragic (for me)!
I was speaking about my concerns to fellow artist friend (another Laura) and she made a few suggestions. In short, I have followed her advice. I opened an account with Fine Art America to sell some of my pieces, originals as well as prints.
I decided to keep the prices minimal – marking them up just a dollar or two on each print and the originals are marked to pay for my materials as well as my time. I wanted to keep the prices as low as I can so that everyone in the tiny house community can afford to support me. Too, I think it would be cool to see my work up in other tiny houses! I am really hoping that this will happen!
