Portfolio Tips for Artists

Your portfolio is a presentation of your work…true statement.

Here is another one…galleries represent artists.

The objective of your fine art portfolio is to use it as a tool to build a long-standing relationship with a gallery. Look at your portfolio as if it is an extension of you as an artist not just a display case. Ask yourself; is it polished and professional or a little rough around the edges?  Does it contain only your best work or everything you ever did?

Does it answer the questions?

  • Is the artist serious?
  • Does the artist have a chance to succeed in the world of art?
  • Is the artist worth representing?

If you answer yes then click next, you do not need to read any further.  If you answer no, continue reading and we will work through this together.
