Because collectors and interior professionals ask about our artists to get a feel for their background and creative process, we make sure that our platform gives them the information they need.

To make it easy, we input your Seller Form information into your account, saving you time and making sure our buyers see a robust representation.

Below is a list of everything necessary to make your EC Gallery vibrant and engaging – which sells more art. Although your account has been filled in, you can edit from your dashboard at any time.

This information will not be visible to the public.

Step 7 - Artist Statement

Bring your story to life! Sharing your story is one of THE most important things you can do to connect with potential buyers. This begins the path to the trust they want to feel before a purchase.

Fine artists call this an Artist Statement but it’s also called ones “story”, your “why”, or purpose.

Whatever you call it, write something expressive that will explain why you create, rather than just your process. If you need guidance, read our helpful post.

Step 8 - Biography

Help others walk your path. Your biography will explain “how you got here”. Use this space to continue to create a connection with the customers who want to learn more about you. If you need guidance, read our helpful post.

Do not add exhibitions/shows in your bio.

Do not add contact information into your bio. It will be removed and you will receive a warning or you will be removed from our platform.

Step 14 - Your Introduction Video

Alright, here is where you can talk to your buyers! Walk them around your studio, explain your process and show off your shining personality!

Create a 30-45 second video introduction and upload to YouTube. Set the video to “unlisted” or “public” then share the URL link on the form. We’ll add it to your Store for everyone to see. If you have a video but not a YouTube account, let us know and we will add it to ours.

You may update the video link at any time.

Step 15 - Artist Tags

TAG, you’re it! Everyone wants to be seen, right?  Well in our digital world, targeted keywords are the best way to show up in searches. Embrace Creatives gives you the space to add keywords/tags to your Shop so people using our search feature can more easily find you and your art.

Include anywhere from 5 – 8 words that best represent you and your art business. They can be one word tags like “abstract” or “painter” but don’t forget to use two-three-word tags like, “contemporary artist” or “potter in Pennsylvania”.

Think like someone searching for what you create. Use Google or Bing to search for your product. Watch the words you use then use them in your Store. For detailed information on keywords and tags, click here.
