    It's very impressive.

    Perhaps the discipline of having to compress into 60 words is good - all waffle (and there's a lot of it about!!)is eliminated leaving only the essential, which comes across with sincerity and passion for what you do.

    I think it's really good.

      Just wanted to say that I think that your statement is really well written and I hope you don't mind but I'm going to use it as inspiration for my own statement which I need to write for my first Exhibition next week

          See, you were worrying unnecessarily! That is a great statement and should entice lots of buyers to your site.

            Well done, very succinct. Not a word wasted. Love it.

              Thank you for your lovely comments!

              The artist statement is a very personal statement about yourself and your art. I think only you can write it as only you really understands what your craft means to you.

              The artist statement is a very personal statement that comes from the heart. The amount of times I have been to a gallery and admired a piece of art, and equally admired the artist’s statement and their inspirations. In fact I tend to spend as much time reading the artists statement than I do admiring their art. To me it can make a huge difference between me buying a piece as I want to know something about the story behind it and who made it.

              I think everybody should write one. I also think that it would be good to display one on your stall at a craft fair. So that potential customers know something about you the artist. I initially sat down and wrote loads of nice things about myself (which in itself is very therapeutic). What I ended up with might not be to everybody’s taste, but it’s me!

              I agree with limiting it to 60 words as it does cut down on the waffle and makes you concentrate on what’s important. There are lots of advice on the web but I found this link particularly useful.

              Blimey...did I just write that!! I think I must have thought I was writing in my blog for a minute there!!!
