A section on selling your work has always been difficult for Artquest to present - we provide information and advice for all visual artists, at all stages in their careers, and working in all media. To break down strategies for selling across such a wide range would require a whole new website all over again.
Instead, we've taken a broad-brush approach to this topic. What do collectors look for? What are the unspoken rules about making an edition of your work? How can you make sure you pay the right amount of tax on sales? What's it like to work with commissioners? And the most hotly contested of all - how do you come up with a good price for your work?
As ever, all these questions are linked to other money issues that artists might face when earning low amounts of money, so we recommend you read the pages in this section that are relevant to you with our Make a living area, with top tips on making the most of your assets, making grant applications, getting money from different sources and minimising your expenditure - and much more.
