Hello everyone at Ganoksin.
I’m an artist who works in a variety of media - including silver and
precious metal clay. Here’s my question: How do I go about finding a
rep? I really, really, really REALLY, hate cold calling, etc.
Everytime I do it, I get so dejected I can’t muster up the courage to
do it again for months. Ridiculous I know, but it’s just one of those
things. And the sad thing is, it’s just my timing that’s off - I get
fabulous responses to my work, I just keep hitting the stores at the
wrong time of year after they’ve spent their open to buy. I have a
business background in advertising (also as a creative, but a writer)
and I should be able to handle this aspect of the business better,
but I would really like to have someone else either accompany me
and/or just rep me, so I can work in my studio and not worry about
these things. Any advise, referrals, or would be greatly
appreciated. And if you’d like to take a look at some of my work, look
for my name amongst the artist’s portfolios at wwar.com - which by
the way offers free portfolios for artists.
