For any professional artist, an outbreak of red dots on the wall of their show is a great feeling. It means people like your work enough to part with their hard-earned cash in order to take it home, and it’s another important step on the journey from art student to practitioner; practitioner to professional; professional to celebrated artist and (hopefully) art icon. But it can be hard to find buyers and collectors for your work at any step along the way.
