...being seen

Corinne Galla

Why do we, as artist, struggle so much with being seen?  Oh, sure, it's easy to make art, place images out there on a website or post photos in social media. We want our public to fall madly and passionately in love with our creations, yet not want these admirers and collectors to know the slightest scrap of information about how we think or feel about bringing forth our work. In other words, "Here's my heart on a plate. Will you pay me for it and just go back to what you were doing?" I still make that mental grimace when I see the phrase "Artist's Bio." I really, really don't want to do that update for my website/Etsy shop/Facebook page. I'd almost rather have prospective customers come over to my house and rummage through the closets while I'm out grocery shopping. My new website's about to be launched, so I have two choices: 1. Use that lame-o bio I've had out there for the last 5 years, or 2. Really tell you what it's (and what I am) all about
