The necessity of selling art can lead creative expansion to a dead end. “If I head in a new direction,” we ask, “will my audience follow?” My experience, though, is that striking out for largely unmapped territories is what makes the resulting art appealing to so many. And it’s what makes selling art so rewarding – in both financial and spiritual terms.

Selling art with changes in direction
It has been asked of me if I am concerned about how my collectors or critics would react to new work, or whether I would be able to make a living at all with newfound mediums?
I found that, although I have created completely new work at various times, I had no doubt that new work would always find it’s place with both the art world and my collector base. I am always simply so excited with discovering new visual languages completely by accident and with no influence by other artists before me. In fact, I am always surprised how quickly collectors embraced the work. I think that most of my collector base sees clearly that I’m sharing a positive message about beauty that can be gained from the aesthetic experience of appreciating these artworks, in the use of colour and composition, etc., as well as at the same time appreciating highlighting a present dramatic plight of our planet and also through the work giving examples of how we can recycle and reuse in creative ways.
