Thriving as a professional artist is hard. Your passion is to create and inspire. However, to thrive, you also have to be great at running a business. You need to excel in marketing, sales, inventory management, accounting, plus much more. And, oh yeah, you need a website.
No one can succeed alone. Our technology platform gives you this help. Our goals are to build the first complete, modern platform to run your art business. Not only will you get a beautifully designed website, you will also get the technology and business tools designed specifically for professional artists. All of your artwork will be displayed beautifully. Newsletters and posts to social media, like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, are baked right in. Analytics show you which artwork sells the best and why. Reports show you where your inventory is.
We handle the technology, beautifully, while you focus on the art.

Meet Your Goals
We make it easy for you to set and keep your goals, so you can focus on your art.
No Technical Skills Needed
We're not like Wix, Weebly, SquareSpace, and other web services. You don't set up your site and deal with a thousand little decisions and buttons. We do it all. You just focus on your art.
No fees. No obligations. No exclusivity. No hassles. When your art sells, you get paid, and we get paid. We deal with sales taxes and all the business details. You just get paid.
I really love the way [my site] looks. You do such a good job. THANKS GUYS!
The site looks wonderful. Love the white space between the paintings. Very cool.
How much does it cost?
There are no setup or monthly fees. We succeed only when you succeed. We earn money only when artwork sells through the website. Our commission typically is 15% to 30%, depending on factors such as your sales goals, the amount and price points of the artwork you produce, and any specific customizations not normally part of the art business. We are not exclusive. You are free to sell your art, as always, through other galleries, though we hope you sell through your site.
What do I get?
You get a beautiful, secure website without the hassle of figuring out how to do it all yourself. Plus, as we grow, you will get access to more and more tools to help you thrive. If you are one of the first to join, you will also have a significant hand in driving feature development. We love to make great tools that are needed and used.
How long does it take?
Our current time to get a new website up is just over one month. This includes gathering information through a personal interview, learning about you, your likes and dislikes, and making sure we 'get' your style. We will then create a specific design, just for you. As we work with more artists, we will get faster. Our goal is to have brand new sites up in a couple weeks.
Focus on Your Art is invitation only right now. We partner with professional artists - those who earn a living through their art. We love art and technology. We see a great opportunity where well-designed technology, built specifically for artists, can open new worlds to all the fantastic, unseen art.
If you are a professional artist, unhappy with your website and all the disjointed technology tools that waste your time and frustrate you, please feel free to apply. We will get back to you soon.
