If you are like me, you will be busily working away in your studio, or garage, or at your kitchen table, deep in your creative world, making wonderful art of all shapes and sizes…all the while filled with glorious visions of your creations adorning the homes of art collectors, filling up galleries galore and selling for 4 figure sums!

And then, you will be able to fuel your practice with the highest quality materials (Michael Harding paints for me!), fund a purpose built studio, and possibly a house in the country too!

Well, there’s my fantasy for you!

My dreams may not have come true (yet), but there are things we can do to give our art some ‘legs’, to help it on its way out into the world. So this is the first in a series of Blog posts in which I have approached various businesses that provide support services for artists in the Chichester area. I would like to say a big thank you to those who have generously answered the questions that we artists would like to ask before taking the plunge!

I hope you will find the posts informative, demystifying in some cases, and helpful in taking a step towards your own dream come true. Meanwhile, ever onwards with the creating… and very best wishes with all your ventures.
