Step 1. Build your portfolio.
In order to start selling your art online, you should have a decent sized portfolio for potential customers to choose from. Aim for 10-25 artworks.
You can either make a bunch of new artwork, or dig up some old pieces that could work digitally or physically to sell.
Step 2: Decide where to sell your art.
Next, you’ll have to decide where to sell your art and that will depend on your medium, style, and goals as an artist.
Identify your audience and how you want to sell your art.
- Are you going to sell primarily prints? (many avenues)
- Are you going to sell physical work, such as paintings? (Etsy, or Fine Art America)
- Do you create sculptures, jewelry or something else tangible? (Etsy)
- Are you interested in designing t-shirts and/or home decor products? (Society6, Zazzle or Redbubble)
Check out my blog post about Where to Sell Your Art Online to help you decide.

Step 3. Optimize your artwork for sale
You’ll have to optimize your art digitally, or take a nice photo of it in order to sell it online.
- Scan or photograph your artwork
- Make it a large file size
- Try to get sharp lines and true colors
- Post process in a program like Photoshop to fix colors, or clean up scans.
Here is a an explanation of how I clean up my drawings using Photoshop and Illustrator
Step 4: Upload and enable as many products as possible
Upload your art to your chosen platform.
If you are going the Print On Demand route, only add to products that look good and work with the design.
Step 5: Market your products
This is where a lot of artists struggle because, well, we’re artists not business or marketing professionals!
- Share your products and artwork on social media.
- Create an Instagram, Twitter, and/or Facebook page dedicated to your art.
- Ideally, choose one you use frequently so it’s not a burden to learn or use daily.
- You may consider building a website, which can be a hub if you sell on multiple platforms. It could be a blog or just a portfolio of your work.
- Check out my pages for inspiration:
- To delve more deeply into marketing, watch tutorials on YouTube or try Skillshare to hone your business skills or even artistic skills as your business grows.
There is a lot to learn on the business side, but don’t neglect your art! Consistently create new designs so you can figure out what works and what doesn’t, and go from there.
Consistency is key!

Here’s one for the nature lovers.
My latest design was inspired by a recent hike I went on.
Here is the view from the top of the trail. This photo was taken from the top of the Dog Mountain trail which starts on Mount Seymour, in North Vancouver, B.C., Canada.
It was a nice, clear day but there were actually still several feet of snow on the mountain, even in early June! It was a good, brisk hike and a lot of fun.
This design works especially well on t-shirts, and would make a great gift for someone in your life who likes hiking our mountain climbing.
It is available now on fashion, accessories and home decor products in my Society6 and Redbubble stores!
Here are a few examples:
I Climb Mountains – Blue – Hoody
I Climb Mountains – Green – Throw Pillow
I Climb Mountains – Blue – Drawstring Backpack
I Climb Mountains – Green – Tapestry
I encourage you to check out the full line on Society6 and Redbubble.

I have a new design in my shops called “Water Mandala”.
This mandala was originally drawn by hand, then scanned and layered over top of a photo I took of the water in a swimming pool!
I think it turned out pretty nice on the products in my Society6 and Redbubble stores. I really love the texture and colour of the swimming pool water, and the mandala stands out nicely layered over it in white. What do you guys think?
Water Mandala Wall Tapestry
Water Mandala Throw Pillow
Water Mandala iPhone Case
Water Mandala Contrast Tank Top
Water Mandala Duvet Cover
This is just a few examples of the products that are available with this design, so make sure to check out my Society6 and Redbubble stores for the full line!
