This week’s featured Association member is Marianne Goodell.
TAA: How would you describe your art to your ideal collector?
Marianne: Figurative, symbolic art and jewelry for personal reflection and emotional release.
TAA: What motivates you during slow seasons?
Marianne: Trying new techniques, taking courses, watching YouTube videos by other artists.
TAA: How did you settle on your current way of working? (How did you narrow your focus?)
Marianna: The busier I got, the more I had to decide what it was I really wanted to do. What do I love doing?
TAA: What is one mistake you’ve learned an important lesson from in your business?
Marianne: To quit selling myself short. I make an assumption people can’t afford my art, so I have a tendency price too low. I’m stopping myself from doing that when quoting prices.
TAA: What was your greatest success from the past year?
Marianne: New clients, FB likes over 3K, exceeded sales goals, created online co-op with other artists who want to grow their business.
