How To Sell Your Artwork Online

If you want to get started on making an income from your art but don’t know where to begin, we’re here to help...

We’re BRUSHWRK, an all-in-one app for buying and selling art with ease. We help independent artists showcase their incredible work and make a living off their art, and we help art lovers support independent artists. Music has Soundcloud, fashion has Depop and BRUSHWRK is for art! Follow these steps to start selling your work through BRUSHWRK’s easy to use app or website:

  • Download the free BRUSHWRK app and set up your profile 

Follow the simple steps when you open the app and add your basic info.

  • At this stage, you can add your artist bio

Make sure to include links to your social media/website and any non-piece specific information that you want buyers to know. 

  • Upload the pieces you want to sell

These can be originals or prints. If you are selling a sculpture or any other fragile art make sure to consider how it will be safely shipped. 

When uploading your work, you will be asked to enter the dimensions, a description and the price. 

Include any piece-specific information here - can you make various sizes of prints? Should the buyer message you before buying? 

  • Publish your work 

Once you’ve published your listing, your work will go onto the explore page of the BRUSHWRK app for buyers to browse. 

Galleries and curators charge artists 40-50% just to show their work - this forces artists to raise prices if they want to make any real money which in turn makes art more expensive. We only take a 5% commission on pieces sold.

  • Ship your work to the buyer! 

Great, your piece has sold! You will receive a notification within the app and to your email with delivery instructions. The artist themselves is responsible for sending off their work, so simply ship it off as soon as you can! 

  • Get Paid

The money will arrive in the bank account that you have attached to your profile once the sale has been completed!
