Art is the way you live your life, everything that is worth something is art, we can’t live without it. Our  cars, smartphones, houses,  they are all designed with the artistic touch. Since any kind of art is valuable, why don’t sell it and make some money.

Selling art is fine job and can bring you financial freedom if your artwork becomes popular. If you are not connected emotionally to your art work, sell it and earn money so you can continue creating more beautiful artworks.

Web can help us sell our art, and these websites will help you sell your artwork online and will give you chance to make money online. I will try to cover as mush websites as I can remember I used and some of the new ones.

The list is not connected to only one type of art, but the art of different forms and usage. Position of the website in the list doesn’t represent my personal favorite, you decide which one fits you best.

  1. Thank you for writing the list, but I have to disagree with two of the sites that you have listed. As a seller, I have not made any sales from Artbreak. And I found Etsy to be unreliable with paying the seller. I would not recommend using those two sources to sell your art.

    • You’re welcome Toi,I’m sorry that those sites didn’t work for you.And thank you for sharing your opinion with me and readers of this blog. 🙂

    • Hi Manita, it’s pretty easy, you can choose any website from the list and create an account.

      Just follow the rules and you will be selling your pictures, many websites have stuff that will help you and explain you everything.

      Just first make sure that you will be payed enough.

      thanks for stopping by 🙂

  2. Hi, Any recommendations for sites that are better for sales outside of the US?

    • Hi Kadongo, I think that most of these websites are international. If there are any boundaries when it comes to selling art, I’m sure that their support will help you to go over that obstacle. thanks for stopping by 🙂

  3. As far as Selling prints of your work, there is etsy, cafepress, zazzle, and deviantart. Etsy for me is too much of a hassle b/c I need to actually handle the shipping and printing and everything. Personally I use as a printer and shipper of my work. they give you a whole gallery option and pricing plans. They have their bare minimum prices, and you keep anything over that amount. Say it costs them $2.30 to print out and ship an 8×10 print. if you price it for $12, you get 10 bucks.

    Here is an example of my smugmug gallery.

    Also, you want to get all of your social media networks on par with one another, make it easy for people to be connected with you. on my homepage you can see that I have links to all of my different outlets (twitter, facebook, instagram ebay etc.)

    Hope this helps, and keep up the hard work!


    • Thanks for the insights Sam, It’s always good to hear from someone with experience in selling art online.

  4. Hi, I’m new at doing Art. Turning 65 and have taken one Art class. I settled on Pastels which let me do two things, free hand pencil, then color etc. In just over a 2 year period I have painted almost 45. All are 18×24 standard frame size art pieces. Most I have given away to friends, family and some of my teachers, Veterans office, and one in school library. Some pieces were copies of Disney characters of which no sale was made and given to family’s kids. I took photo’s of most of my work which is diverse.
    Question, how do I showcase what I’ve done to attract buyers? What would it cost me to set this up on a monthly basis? Can I sell 18×24 finished artwork in pastels and ship just the painting with no frame? That lets buyer pick a standard frame near them.
    Also who can take my photo’s and do standard print copies of finished paintings for sale to potential buyers?
