Hi Camilla I've seen your etsy work - nice - where else is your work for sale? Thanks. Cremmen
My work is for sale through GCAC in Santa Ana, AR4T in Laguna Beach, and various other brick and mortar boutiques. You can also buy directly from me. Anything I make is for sale unless it’s already sold, just ask for the price. And I’m always up for a studio visit and there’s no obligation to buy anything if you do. -Camilla
Hello Camila, thanks for liking one of my images. I just wanted to share with you that while in school I was studying alternative forms of printmaking in contemporary art and I did various presentations on different artists and you were one of them. I enjoy printmaking a lot and I find interest in the possibilities that exist beyond the traditional structure in printmaking. I´ts nice to find you here, I´ll keep myself updated now on your processes. Cheers! -Matias
Wow, that’s very cool, thanks for letting me know!
To be honest, selling out seems so amorphous now. I don’t really know what it means to you, but every artist has to decide what they’re willing to compromise on and what’s too much. We make decisions about money with our art all the time (what materials we can afford, what we can afford to store if it doesn’t sell, etc.). You just have to decide what’s important and what isn’t and then make decisions from there.
HI! I am a fellow printmaker from Bloomington, Indiana (BFA, Indiana University)--I literally just got to LA and plan on being here for a while! I noticed your Tumblr says your studio is open for visits! If you're open to it, I'd love to see your work/studio and talk about being a young artist/printmaker in LA! Hope to hear from you! -m. carson day
Oh dear, good thing you plan on being here awhile because I think you wrote this some time ago and I just saw it. Yes, I do indeed welcome studio visits! I’m in downtown LA in the industrial district. Let me know when you’d like to come by—just give me a couple days advance notice to tidy up.
hi, do you have any tips on becoming a better artist? :)
Well, it does depend on what you mean by a better artist. It could mean better at making art, or more successful at the career of being an artist. But either way, here’s some sort of obvious advice:
Work at it. Invest all your spare time into it.
Hang out with other artists and ask them to give you a real critique (not just the nice things your friends say) and take their feedback into account going forward. Meet professional or more advanced artists and ask for them for critique your work (you could offer some sort of trade, like buy them coffee while they talk to you).
Decide what part of the art world you think works for you and research it, attend galleries, make friends, etc. If you’re into abstract expressionism, then don’t invest tons of time looking into galleries that show pop surrealist work.
I’ve compiled a list of artist job opportunity websites for a discussion I’m moderating at SGCI, 2014. I’ve tried to cover nearly every state for the US and listed national websites at the bottom. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or revisions. Feel free to share this list.
