THE BUSINESS OF ART & THE ART OF BUSINESS
Feb 04, 2021 Season 1 Episode 24

I speak to Nicole Tamarin, artist, instructor and entrepreneur, about the business of art and the art of business.

  • Trade shows and doing your homework to research the industry
  • Truly understanding the market
  • Artists get to a point where they should work on art and not business, ie. working with an agent
  • Collaborations
  • The business of licensing
  • Products are also a service industry
  • Teaching art and teaching to the individual. Her amazing journey started with her French teacher.

"...every student has their special mark to make on the world."

One of my favorite topics we discuss is constructive criticism. It's all about the communication and timing when giving feedback to an artist. Pointers should be given with tact and purpose at the appropriate points in a project.

Plus, I have heard this many times from successful entrepreneurs, that their journey is seen as an instant success from others. Often, it is not instant, it was a slow and steady process, so it can be maintained. This is often not seen by the average onlooker, but known to the entrepreneur.

About Nicole:
Nicole is a left-brained creative who's practicality tends to win over passion until the one day it didn't.  She had a true lightbulb moment where she could see so clearly where she was meant to be and how she was meant to get there which ultimately allowed her to push play on this artistic career that she will forever be grateful for.  Nicole creates traditional watercolor art designed for use by the stationery, gift, and home décor markets.  Her work is sold at retailers nationally on products such as quilting fabric, hard and soft home items, wall art and seasonal décor, as well as internationally on her first love, greeting cards, which she has been fortunate enough to have published over 500 designs including three signature lines.
