About Wise Owl Artworks
When and how did you start your business?
“I incorporated Wise Owl Artworks almost one year ago. Although I’ve always had a passion for playing with color, I never considered myself an artistic person. Taking a collage class changed that. I was hooked. My work was well received, so I quickly expanded to designing for products, such as tote bags, scarves, and tea towels.”
What’s the biggest challenge you faced with your business and did you able to overcome it?
“I spent my career in nonprofit management. It was hard at first to think of myself as an artist. To get better acquainted with the art world, I joined a local artist’s group and attended some seminars at my local community college. Now I have a wonderful network of artist friends, customers, and colleagues that support each other.”
Any success stories you’d like to share?
“I recently had a piece of art accepted for a contemporary art exhibit in a local museum. It was a first for me.”
Joining the Art Community and Promoting Sales
What are some of the activities you do to promote artwork sales?
“Instagram is great because I can show my art and reach people who like my work. Plus, it has a dynamic community of artists who are willing to share their expertise.
“In addition to selling online, I show and sell my pieces at selected fine art and craft fairs, art exhibits, and retail gift shops.
“Lastly, printing hang tags with NextDayFlyers allowed me to promote my brand professionally and consistently across my entire product line.”
