...If not, then read on to discover who we truly are

Artists have been stereotyped to have a lack of marketing skills, technological abilities and negotiation expertise. If you’re an artist and you feel that the stereotypical artist is typical of you, then you might have stumbled upon Discover My Art for good reason. If you on the other hand are an artist who is successful at maintaining high levels of inspiration, are able to market yourself, and are comfortable with pricing and negotiating the value of your art, then you will also admit that even you have one thing in common with the not so “multi-talented” artist – limited time! The same 24 hours that make up his day, also make up yours.

At Discover My Art we realise one thing is true of the art industry – competition is tough! To remain competitive will not only demand sharpness and skill, but also time. Time spent on targeted marketing can often leave little time for what you truly love to do and have been gifted to do – create art!

We all dream of building a career from the very gifts and desires that are within us but not all achieve it. If you are not an inspired artist, you will not be discovered. And, if you are not discovered, you will not be inspired. You will only create art as a hobby, sell art as a sideline, or if a full time artist, sell well below the potential of your creation’s selling power or be frustrated at the expense of all your time being swallowed up trying to juggle creating the art and then trying to sell it.

My name is Jason Swart – founder of Discover My Art. I am the son of an artist mother, the husband of an artist wife, the son-in-law of an artist mother-in-law, and a friend of so many other artists – all naturally talented people of the arts! For all that artistic aroma around me, I am by no means an artist myself. However, I have found that what all these artists are not, I am – generally speaking that is. Their creative, dominant right-sided brain gave my analytical, dominant left-sided brain an opportunity to partner with them to accomplish a fully capable dominant mind! And so Discover My Art was born.

The desire to see the potential of beautiful art, still undiscovered, to reach the realm of discovered, has become the thrill and inspiration of DMA. Great art left in the dark, unseen, is the saddest tale of all. It needs illumination! It needs to be discovered! And therein lays our set of skills. You might say that online selling, exhibiting, and marketing is an open door for any artist with an internet connection. We agree, like you cannot believe! But do this one thing, Google “sell art online” and get excited about the 22,400,000 search results that it returns you. And then as your excitement settles, you ask yourself “where to start?” There are well over 300 websites that specifically sell original art online, with each of them varying greatly in what they offer to you. So the short answer is that “yes”, the internet has opened the arena for your art to be discovered but with such an open arena, equally we can answer “no”, it is not a simple quick task of listing your work online that equates to your work reaching a new discovery point. And whilst “online” is a massive door, it is by no means the only one.

We humans like to believe otherwise, but the reality is that success is built on hard work, smart work, and team work. You might already have hard and smart but if you don’t have team then check out how DMA can team up with you and bring “hard” and “smart” to your work in a way that will bring new levels of inspiration and discovery!
