If you create any form of art and want a web presence, would like to display your work and perhaps sell your originals or prints - whatever your needs - this is the service for you. Virtually your own website without you having to do the work or gain the knowledge required.

You can upgrade to the Gold service at any time, and you have the full use of the Starving Artists 2 automated galleries too.

Everything in the Silver service plus a lot more. If you sell prints or accept commissions this is the right service for you. Your own Shopping Cart, unlimited images, close-up views of your artwork so your work can be better appreciated on the web [view example], your own Commission Details panel (with entries in the Commission Finder feature on the home page)... and more.

Hobbyist?
If you enjoy painting, drawing, pyrography, sculpture... whatever - the Starving Artists 2 automated gallery is the one for you. You manage your own work and make your own decisions about what to post or remove.
Beginning or wanting to build a business?
If promotion of your art is your aim then Starving Artists was created for you.  Starving Artists exists to promote your work and name as an emerging artist. It's the site I wish I had 25 years ago when I first started out. Choose the Silver service to use your gallery as a mobile portfolio and for global promotion and advertising of your art. If you want all the benefits of the site or accept commissions choose the Gold service. We're here to help you in any way we can.
Professional?
You can never have too much exposure. Even if you have your own website, centres such as Starving Artists can often draw a more diverse audience. Direct links to your site give you increased traffic and improve your link popularity in search engines such as Google.

You will need at least one image to send us when you sign up for your Gold or Silver Starving Artists gallery so you might like to sort this out now.
