5 Tips For Starting an Art Print Business

5 Tips For Starting an Art Print Business

When I set off to begin my journey as Kimposed, it was just a fun idea. As you may or may not already know, my trade by day is digital marketing analytics and strategy.

In short, it’s a lot of charts, testing and crunching numbers. I just wanted to be creative again. It had been so long since I had really put down any paint on paper, and I missed it.

What I Learned During My 30-Day Art Challenge, On Day 19

When I embarked on my 30-day art challenge on Instagram, I thought it was going to be easy. Oh contraire (It’s called a “challenge” reason)!

Then reality hit.
