This is very helpful information for someone who really wants to get started but not sure where to start re selling work online. Many of the online sales suggestions feature only UK based artists. Do you know of any that show work from all countries? Specifically Thailand? Thanks.

Hi Jo.
Glad you are finding it helpful. I just did a quick Google and you are right. There don’t seem to be any online galleries specific to Thailand. Many of the larger online galleries like Redbubble, Etsy etc will shop worldwide so they can be good, although the postage can be prohibitive for some areas. Best thing to do is probably to sell through your own website as you can then target your local area more successfully. Good luck with it all.

Hi Rosie.

Great to see you on here. Like your sites. Theres some lovely work on there. Great to see a portal too like this for NZ artists. Only thing I would say is maybe make sign up for newsletter a little more obvious [even though its in the middle I missed it - maybe add a graphic or something] and give an incentive for signing. That will help you get more signups. But lovely work.

Hi everyone, I would really like to hear your thoughts on this online gallery. http://www.artbuyweb.com
It is a follow on from my own personal online gallery http://www.artbyrosie.com, that I made available to other artists to help promote and sell their work, when I was still in the UK.
I now live in New Zealand and have built http://www.artme.co.nz for NZ artists, which is another doorway if you like, into this original website.
So if you have a spare 5 minutes, please have a gander and let me know what you think, good and bad, I can take it – Thank you :-)
