Monday, November 1, 2010 offers rich array of features

We'd like to start out this month by thanking Toni Daniel, who alerted us to by showing us her own website, is operated by, a popular print-on-demand service for artists.

Toni is one of a growing number of artists taking advantage of artist website hosting companies, which offer attractive site templates, simple navigation, and an extensive set of features.

Toni's site showcases her beautiful nature photography and impressionist oil paintings...  most of which can be purchased directly from FineArtAmerica in a variety of formats, including posters, framed Giclee prints,  stretched canvases, and even greeting cards. 

The site features include an artist statement, event calendar, blog, contact form, mailing list signup, and much more.  It's a sophisticated, full-featured site that really promotes Toni's work.

For another example, we looked at  Karin has taken advantage of the blog and news capabilities at to talk about her gallery shows and awards.

Companies like usually limit the ability of the artist to control the appearance and functions of their website.  In return, they offer a great set of features - include easy ways for artists to sell their work - at a very affordable price.  It's certainly an option worth considering!

(Note that it would also be possible for an artist to have their own domain name, and "forward" the name to their page.)
