ABOUT ART STby Karen Collins
After completing a painting semester at the Brisbane Institute of Art with some extremely talented Artists, it occurred to me how hard it is for new Artists or student Artists to sell their work and become well-known. It is difficult to be accepted by a shop front gallery, so that leaves art competitions or the Artist paying for marketing and/or their own website, which can be very costly.
So, being a web designer, I decided to create ART ST ... a website and supportive community especially for Brisbane's emerging artists AND for art collectors who like to identify new talent.
I sincerely hope it makes a difference to Brisbane's Artists and student Artists who are trying to share their gift with the world or who simply would like to cover the cost of their art supplies.
I am a freelance web designer, graphic designer with a background in IT support and project management. I am also a student Artist. I don't have as much time as I would like for painting, but it is something I really enjoy and hope to sell a few paintings on ART ST myself!
