Up to this point, all of the articles on this blog have been about marketing. I may post more about that in the future, but for now, my focus is on my path as an artist.
I was encouraged to pursue art from a young age. But as I approached college graduation, reality set in when I discovered that without a patron, it’s nearly impossible to make a living as an artist.
After completing a degree in journalism, I spent 35 years working in electronic media and marketing with very little focus on art. It has come to a time in my life when I have time for and can no longer ignore my desire to create art.
Realistically, I’m a 2-D artist. I work in collage, drawing, painting, pastel and printmaking. The work that I will share on this website will likely be in one of those categories.
Enjoy! Mary Lou Olds
