EP49: The “Artist Success Interview Series” is a collection of interviews from artists who have had great success selling their art and reaching their goals. They’ll be sharing the biggest catalysts to their success and providing valuable tips that you can implement in your own business.
Inge Flinte is an abstract artist currently living in Australia. Inge has been painting seriously for about 8 years now, but it wasn’t until just a few years ago that her career in fine art took off. She gave some work to a friend’s gallery just to get it out of the house, and to her surprise her originals began selling so fast she had a hard time keeping up with the demand. Prior to this experience, Inge never thought it was possible to create an income around her art, and it took someone else believing in her for Inge to begin believing in herself. Her art business continued to grow as she had fun acting on her ideas and seeing where they would take her.
Over the past couple of years Inge has seen a lot of change, to include moving continents twice and uncertainty with her husband’s job along with the normal change that occurs as life happens. She managed to adapt but not without making changes in her business as well. When she became concerned that selling her original art wouldn’t bring in the income she needed, Inge decided it was time to create a few new streams of income.
Listen in to hear more about how Inge adapted and the pivots she has made in her art business.
