Why sell art online?

To quote Eleanor Roosevelt, 'Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.'

I live in a fairly remote location, which is lovely for creating art, but has drawbacks when it comes to making my work available to a wider audience. I also want to do my part to look after our planet, so I use my car as little as possible.

As we're lucky enough to have good internet access here, the www offers a solution to these issues. People can view my work in their own time, where they are & purchase securely online.
