How To Buy Art Online
Buying artworks online has become the most common and easiest ways for collectors to purchase a new art piece for their home. It also doesn't limit you to where you or the artist lives in the world, original art can be easily shipped safely worldwide.
I have been selling my original art online since 2017 and then becoming a full time artist 2 years later in 2019 I have sent my original paintings to hundreds of homes all over the world.
Here are my top tips to help you buy art online that you will treasure forever.
1. BUY WHAT YOU LOVE.
Never buy an artwork that is the latest 'trend' or because someone else likes it. Always buy an artwork that resonates with you in some or many ways. Think about your emotions and feeling when you view art. Find the artwork that makes you be intrigued by it, makes you stop in your tracks. Something that makes you feel happiness, excitement, calmness or other emotions. Something that triggers a memory or special moment in your life. Art is subjective so always go with your gut feeling and what speaks to you. You have to love it first and foremost.
2. CHAT TO THE ARTIST.
If you have a question about an artwork then please email, DM the artist. I get questions all the time and I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have. It doesn't matter how small or silly you think the query may be, I would prefer you ask and I guarantee nothing is too small or silly to ask. I want to make sure you are totally 100% happy with the purchase process or artwork you are enquiring about.
3. MAKE THE MOST OF MY FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING ON ART.
If you purchase your beautiful new artwork via my website then you will get free shipping no matter where you are in the world. Shipping artworks can be a very costly part of purchasing so I have made it easier for you. The price you see will be the price you pay, no hidden extras at checkout. Plus I also cover and provide insurance on all original artworks whilst they are in transit, to help give you that extra peace of mind.
4. EASY AND SAFE PAYMENT OPTIONS.
Payment of an artwork is a simple easy process at checkout on my website. You have the option to use your Debit/Credit Card, Paypal and Afterpay (if you would like to pay in instalments). All are common, safe, secure payment options for you to use online.
5. SIGN UP TO KEEP AN EYE OUT.
If you're just at the looking and deciding stage of buying art right now, that's cool. Feel free to sign up to my email newsletter I send a weekly email out which has news of my latest releases, exciting art news, any new exhibitions and up and coming sales. This is the easiest and best way to stay in touch and be in the loop.
