I am an artist in the U.S. From statistics here, only 20% of the population owns original art, I don't know what the percentages are where you are
from. You have to target your market. Who can afford it, and are they willing to take a chance on an unknown artist? How is your pricing? Too high,
No matter where you live, this is a tough business. I do about 10-12 shows a year and I'm in my fifth year of business. I am just now starting to
build a decent client base. Unless you are the .002% of those lucky enough to catch the eye of a serious consultant/gallery, you are most likely going
to have a tough time. I know some truly talented and gifted artists that struggle to make a living at what they do. I swear this is just like trying
to be a professional athlete or musician, your odd aren't great, and you will have to do a lot more than have an online presence.
Not trying to discourage you, just trying to be real. If you really want it, you have a lot of work to do besides just making the art.
