How To Buy Art Responsibly and Ethically

How To Buy Art Responsibly and Ethically

Support real art. Follow real people on social media, who create. Follow local Etsy craftspeople and support local art galleries, craft markets. Support your musicians, artists, jewelers, knitters, crafters, potters, poets, painters, sculptors. You will be able to share in the creativity of their everyday journeys, not just the pretty staged picture at the end. ENGAGE at any level. Share our heartbreak too. As makers, we are deeply grateful for the love you share with us.

My Battle with Online Art Theft

My Battle with Online Art Theft

Over the past couple months, I have been relentlessly trying to get unscrupulous drop shipping companies to stop selling my art that is blatantly stolen by Ali Express. The network is so large, so widespread of ruthlessly stealing from small makers, artists and craftspeople from all over the world.
They steal our intellectual property, mass produce them in China and have them drop shipped for pennies to make gigantic profits.
