“I made some interesting pieces, and someone told me to post them. Some folks in town saw the posts and asked to purchase them, so I said $400. Then, an investment firm reached out, and I sold a piece for $2400. I read a book on SEO and built a website… I got a call from a designer in Brooklyn who needed a piece for an accounting firm, then a neutraceutical start-up wanted a huge 16’ piece for their headquarters, and by then, I was asking about $6-8K… then I got an art broker, and things started taking off…. Large financial firms, household names… it’s been amazing. I still have my day job!.”
