Hi everyone!

I’m glad I’ve found this forum, I’ve been looking for some time for somewhere I can speak with fellow artists.

I’m an abstract artist working in acrylics and inks. I live on the Isle of Man (tiny Island between England and Ireland). As must as I love the Island, I’m really struggling to have my art seen, I have an Instragram account (jennakim_art) but my posts don’t reach very far. I really want to have a presence in either England (preferably Liverpool, Manchester) or Northen Ireland as I can get there pretty easily by ferry. My problem is I haven’t got a clue where to start, I didn’t take art in school, I have no experience. My painting started as a hobby last year, and then a passion. I’ve self taught myself through endless hours online and I started being told I should sell my work. I have sold a few over the last couple of months but I would love to grow....I just don’t know how. If anyone could give me any advice, big or small, I would be very very grateful. Thanks Jenna xx
