Give away a short biography of yourself with every piece of art you sell. This way customers can become better acquainted with your work, and their desire to buy and collect your work will grow. An artist’s biography also costs next to nothing to create. It’s distinctly different from a résumé or statement. The biogrpahy includes more about your personal life and accomplishments written from the viewpoint of an objective observer. Any first-person comments should be placed within quotation marks.
