I’ve opened an art shop!

Big news, everybody.

Or you might have already heard about it if you follow me on social media.

But hey! Big news! I’ve officially opened a shop to sell my art on neat merchandise like prints, coffee/tea mugs, tote bags, iPhone or Samsung cases, journals, and so on and so forth. You can find my new art website at www.artbyjessicajewett.com and it will be linked to this main website as soon as I figure out how to do that trick. Technology is really my downfall.

When you’re on my art website, select Gallery from the menu at the top. There you’ll see a lot of my art show up as tiles that fit together. Click on one and it becomes a slideshow that you can swipe through with captions and nifty descriptions for all of the pieces. I’m producing a lot more art these days, so that page will change frequently. And I’ll be dressing up the place a little more as I go. The blog over there is strictly for my art projects. Everything here will remain the same, except clicking any art links will redirect you to the art website. I wanted to keep art separate from the rest of my work.

You’ll also notice there’s a RedBubble Shop option in the menu at the top of the art website too. Clicking on that will take you to www.redbubble.com/people/artbyjessicaj and that’s where you can buy nine pieces (currently) of my art in various ways.

I had hoped to open my own storefront straight out of the box and avoid third party sellers altogether because they all take a big portion of the retail price for production costs. However, I don’t have enough upstart money to invest in all the costs it takes to become a small business owner of an art shop. So for now, my plan is to save money while my third party sites like RedBubble and (soon) Etsy are out there working their magic. One day artbyjessicajewett.com will be self-sufficient.

One thing at a time though. Let me know how you like the site! Oh and that painting on the header? That’s my work too.
