Artist Website FAQ

  • Yes! Your website can do more than just display your artwork. It’s a hub that provides important information about you to different kinds of visitors: patrons who want to see your work and possibly buy it, critics and press who want to interview and promote you, and art galleries, agents, and representation who are interested in booking you for shows, commissions, and exhibitions. Your homepage is a platform that you control, and that everyone can access.

  • When you plan what to include on your artist website, you probably have a lot of the pieces already. Most important is your portfolio—a photo gallery or web page where you display your best work. Add a brief bio and artist’s statement, and a list of current and upcoming events and locations where visitors can see and purchase your artwork. A list of past exhibitions, commissioned pieces, and galleries where you have shown your artwork is also helpful. Last but not least, don’t forget a Contact page to make it easy for people to get in touch.

  • The key to a good artist page is to make visitors feel like they are seeing your artwork in person. This is mostly done using high-quality photographs and possibly video. Since the artwork should be the highlight, we recommend using a clean and minimal design with a black or white background. Do make sure to include some text on every page, since this will help people understand your site and help search engines find you. Also, don’t include every piece you’ve ever made. Edit it down to just your favorite pieces to have a bigger impact.

  • If you are interested in selling artwork directly from your website, Jimdo is a great solution. Plus, you don’t have to pay any commission on what you sell. You can make separate product pages for your individual pieces, or you can display your art all together in one storefront. You will then just need to enter a few store settings to accept payments, and you’re ready. You can even make sales through your store and offer works for local pickup if you do not want to ship them.
