Creative Digest

Often the hardest part of the creative process can be putting a price on your artwork. It can be a real challenge to put a nominal figure on your creative endeavours, especially as the artist default setting seems to err on the side of modesty. With many of you preparing to welcome visitors for Open Studios 2015, it is a good time to consider how you will arrive at a price for your work.
