An online portfolio can be a great time and money saver. Interested galleries and buyers look through your work at any time from any place. You no longer need send a full print book or cart around a massive portfolio of samples. Pieces can be presented in attractive galleries or slideshows with pertinent information such as medium and year tagged on every image. Using a WordPress framework, you can move your artwork from available to sold, update images, add show and event information and more quickly and easily. While the page framework is a standard content management system, your page design will be created just for you. No generic templates here! I can walk you through every step of the site – from design, choosing pieces, providing text, choosing a web name and even will create how-to worksheets so you can update your site ( if you so desire). Creating a web site doesn’t need to be scary or hard!
