What area do you work in? Are you a painter, sculptor, printmaker? You can select more than one category here. Visitors to the website will be able to search for artists in each listed caterory. If your nominated category isn’t listed, click the ‘Other’ checkbox and tell us what it is, we may be able to add your ‘other’ category to the list.
An introduction about you
This should be brief – the idea here is that this is a quick introduction to who you are as an artist. Aim for a minimum of 50-ish and maximum of 150-ish words
What are media do you work with? If you are a painter, do you paint in oil or acrylic, or both? If you are a sculptor, do you work with wood or metal or clay? This is a brief listing of the different media that you work with in your nominated art category/s.
More About Me
This is where you tell us more about you and your work. In effect your, an artist biography or artist statement. Tell us what motivates and inspires you. Include awards and your exhibitions history, if this is relevant to you. Tell us if you run regular workshops or sell your artwork online, tell us and include a link here.
Some artists write their details to read like a CV, others tell a story. How you want to present the information is up to you – but tell us about you and your arts practice! Again, have a look at a few different profiles in the online Member’s directory to get a feel for the different ways people share their stories.
How much do you write? Some people have written 100 words, others 500 words. 300 words is a good word count to aim for. More is ok. And so is less.
