Last week our show headed over to Paris, well not physically unfortunately for me. Karen Whitworth joined us from Paris to talk about problem solving with creativity and passion. It was an interesting talk and Karen’s positive energy is infectious.
Karen mentioned how she lived in Alaska and the challenges she faced trying to sell her art and find collectors. It is clear that Karen loves to paint and that she enjoys her work. Karen pointed out that she is always thinking of ideas to use her artwork as well as looking for new ways to sell her originals. Karen has a number of product lines, from selling Alaska wildflower seeds to baggage tags for luggage. We discuss how she came up with these ideas and she provides information on how she researches each idea to determine its viability.
I encourage you to listen to this art chat and decide if expanding your work into other possible incomes is something that you would like to do. If you would like to visit Karen’s website to see all she does with her artwork, click here.
