About Leah and how Artist's Websites began

Living with an artist and being involved in the daily triumphs and struggles of an art career has given me an intimate knowledge of what an artist faces and what it takes to make it in the arts. I highly respect anyone who has the dedication and commitment to choose it as a career.

 

My husband made that choice over ten years ago and now enjoys a successful, growing career (you can learn more about Jerry on his website). Between running my own web design and marketing business, helping to manage my husband's career, and learning from established artists, I have learned a lot about the art business (and always continually learning).

 

When we are at art events I often receive comments from artists that they could use a "Leah" or someone to manage their career. Most artists don't have the time, desire or skills because their focus is on being in the studio and doing what they do best - creating art for the rest of us to enjoy. So I thought, why not share my knowledge and skills with others where I can, and offer my time to help those that don't have the time or resources themselves? Learn more about how I can help with your art website and online marketing.

 

Choosing a career in art isn't always an easy road, but it can be very rewarding, inspiring, and your work will be a lasting legacy for others to enjoy. My husband and I both have a passion for art and have a desire to help artists succeed. That is why I decided to offer my knowledge to others and help in areas that I can. Thank you for visiting my website and for sharing your gift.

I'll leave you with this quote from Robert Henri's book 'The Art Spirit'

 

"When the artist is alive in any person, whatever his kind of work may be, he becomes an inventive, searching, daring, self-expressing creature. He becomes interesting to other people. He disrupts, upsets, enlightens, and he opens ways for a better understanding. Where those who are not artists are trying to close the book, he opens it, shows there are still more pages possible."
