I’m really, totally back at it, posting regularly in addition to teaching, creating, building, making. It’s good to be here again, in this space, sharing great contemporary fine craft with you. And speaking of you, today’s post is about what I can do for you. . .
Tomorrow? Hmmmmm. . .maybe a post about porcelain jewelry, or I could post about a ceramic artist who’s wall pieces make me swoon. . .or maybe minimalist concrete jewelry. Tomorrow please pop back over here to see who I feature next on DAM. Today though, take a look at how I can help you:
let me TEACH you how to create a website to showcase your work. . .
I’m delighted to announce that after a year-long absence, WPBasics is back! Designed with artists in mind, this eCourse teaches you how to create a WordPress website for your art.
I believe one-size-does-NOT-fit-all when it comes to learning a new skill, therefore students can choose from three levels of instruction.
Registration details and more information here.
let me CREATE a website to showcase your work. . .
Many artists do not have time (or desire) for the learning curve involved in building a website so a class doesn’t help them. I understand, and I’ve got you covered! I now create websites for artists. I love everything about WordPress and this was the natural ‘next-step’.
Here’s what folks are saying:
Renowned polymer artist Kathleen Dustin’s new website
“I have had a long working relationship with Susan and recently went live with my new website. All I can say is that she is absolutely the best. She spent a lot of time learning exactly what I wanted for the look of my site, executed my ideas and gave me options. Susan patiently taught me how to update my website with clear and understandable videos she made just for me. I highly recommend Susan to anyone wanting an artistic website and wanting to have control over it. I feel so much more empowered now in marketing my work.” ~ Kathleen Dustin
Studio Art Jeweler Amy Greely’s website
“Susan is an excellent teacher. And while her WordPress for Artists class gave me the insight and the tools to create a website true to my vision, it unfortunately could not give me the hours to actually complete it. After months of trying to carve out the time to progress beyond the beginning stage, a frustrated e-mail went out with a plea for recommendations of professionals who might be able to help.
To my surprise and delight, Susan was available to begin translating my vision into a reality and the whole process was seamless and easy. She clearly heard what I was trying to say as an artist and was able to create the visuals to further support that communication. She knew intuitively which questions to ask and how to navigate behind the scenes creating exactly what I had envisioned. Her ongoing support and maintenance have allowed me to focus on the work that I love and we continue to explore new ideas and additions.
Having worked with other web developers in the past, the luxury of working with an artist who understands the needs and nuances necessary to create a compelling creative website cannot be overstated. As we straddle the lines of art, advertisement, communication, and commerce, Susan is an excellent guide and navigator.” ~Amy Greely
