Have you ever experienced this??

Someone asks you what you do and when you say ‘Artist’, they ask if you can create art for the local society or other worthy cause - free of charge of course!!!

Or, someone likes your art and you give them the price and they offer you half of what you say??

In this episode, I talk about why people devalue art and what you can do about it.

This conversation came from a post we shared that said - “yes, I am an artist and I have bills to pay just like you and everyone else, so no I won't work for free”.

Giles asked why this happens and I thought it was a great question.

In this episode I talk about the main reasons and cover the following:

  • The top 3 reasons why people devalue art
  • What you can do to add more value
  • Learn how to say no and what to say no to
  • How it’s not just your time and materials that add value to what you create
  • Why people negotiate you down on price and how to handle this

I would love to hear your thoughts on this topic, do you have a story to share on this topic?? We would love to hear, let us know on our Facebook or Instagram.


Every year I run an incredible FREE workshop that teaches people how to get their art into the world and sell it.  I have been teaching this framework for more than 6 years now and it works!

We start on the 1st September and it lasts for 2 weeks.
