As an Artist, I try to find other ways to monetize my art apart from exhibitions,
blogging,markets and fairs, the other ways for me, to put my art out there, are licencing on products and workshops. 
This particular blog is on products-Tote bags, which has my art printed on them,

that in itself is a subtle way of
advertising and putting my art, out there through fashion and style.
 Printed products come in handy for the artist, to still make money on a painting by the side.
These small collaborations here and there, help the artist to put their works
 out there, and will in turn,help their bottom line. 
Every Artists, knows the difficulties of getting any sort of funding, for our projects and it can be quite discouraging. 
These online platforms out there, allows for us to extend our creativity, by Licencing art on there products and creating,a brand and retail business around them.

With the right products and tags, your creativity gets seen, around the world without much expenditure.
I can only write about the ones I know of and use,it involves hard work and constant sharing, of your creative designs, through social media and news letters.

These platforms that I'm familiar with are:

In this day and age of fierce
entrepreneurship, it is important as 
artists, to be in the game.
This is so important and cannot be over emphasized or taken for granted, 
because we are the creatives and our imaginative process, can only be imagined and conceived, by us artist. 
It is a gift that keeps on giving,and must be harnessed and utilized, to its fullest. 
Hence the internet,with all its juicy platforms that enables us, to be us..... Artist!
These tote bags represent my Art and these are gorgeous all-over printed tote bags features sturdy, weather-resistant fabric and dual 100% natural cotton bull denim shoulder straps. 

And one can make a beautiful, artful statement with this stand out, all-season  Tote Bags - whether on an afternoon stroll around town or a weekend out of town.
The Tote bags are designed by me and are made and sold by Vida ,on their platform and the revenue is shared.

Most of which goes to educating women around the world. And I totally support that cause.
I love how my Art, is a statement and is enjoyed by those who love Art and Style.....Enjoy
