Art Business Advice: Real Strategies to Help you Succeed in the Business of Art

Want to be a professional artist? Then you MUST know how to sell your art—online and off. At EmptyEasel we only share art business advice for artists by artists. You'll learn where to sell fine art online, get strategies on how to market your art successfully, and find out which art websites are better at selling original art versus fine art prints.

Not online? That's OK. Besides learning which art-selling websites are the best, you'll also find complete art marketing guides, tips for how to sell art at art fairs, and step by step instructions on using your email list (yep, email!) to build a successful career from selling art.

We also do our best to encourage and motivate every artist who stops by. And if you're an art buyer or new art collector, we'll occasionally share tips for buying art as well.
