Artist Sara B. Worner Gives Tips On Going Pro

Business Innovators:   Great. Now, just to wrap this up, what are one or two things that all aspiring artists should consider before putting their work out in the public domain?

Sara:  That’s one thing about social media these days. Once it’s out there, it’s really out there. Anyone can just open the picture and save it and recreate it anyway they want to. That’s a concern with artists. They don’t want people taking their work and using it as their own. I like to make sure I either sign the painting before I post it, or I will put a watermark on there. There’s all kinds of sites where you can put a watermark right on your artwork digitally before you upload it. That way people can’t copy your work.

Business Innovators:  Sara, I thank you for taking the time to speak with us  today.

Sara:  It was my pleasure.

Business Innovators: Absolutely. If you could give our viewers a way to contact you and be able to look at your works, like your social media contact and your website.

Sara: Absolutely. I have a website now and it is I’m also on Facebook, and it is Sara’s Studio. You can’t miss it.
