My Art Journey: From Galleries to Online Success with Shop In Ireland
Art has always been my passion, and I've been selling my original oil paintings for years, primarily through galleries. However, in February 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic forced galleries to close, pushing me to explore online selling. That's when I discovered Shop In Ireland. Let's delve into my journey, my best-selling works, and what the future holds.
A New Chapter with Shop In Ireland:
As galleries shut their doors, I sought a new way to share my art. Shop In Ireland emerged as the perfect solution for small Irish businesses like mine. It offered a broader audience and the personal touch that makes art special.
- Bluebell Woods Paintings: The enchanting Killarney bluebell woods have been a recurring theme in my art, drawing admirers with their vibrant colors and serene charm.
- Still Waters and Reflections: The tranquility of still waters and the captivating reflections they create have become a hallmark of my work, invoking peace and contemplation.
- Children Portraits: Capturing the innocence and joy of children has always been a source of inspiration, bringing smiles to many homes.
- Custom Pieces for Special Occasions: My custom paintings have found their way into retirement celebrations, presentations, and cherished moments, making them truly unique
Looking ahead, my plans involve refining my online and direct selling mix, a strategy that has proven successful. Additionally, I'm eager to participate in more art exhibitions, including the upcoming Art Source event at Cork City Hall.
