You may have heard her on the Ask Calls in September 2009 or more recently, in April 2011.  Jill Seale was exhibiting at the SURTEX show and took a minute to talk to me about her path into and within art licensing.

One piece of advice Jill gave a new artist showing at Surtex  was “do not undersell yourself for the excitement of having art on product because all you do is cheapen your art and yourself and you will be fighting to shed that and get your prices where you can make a living for the rest of your career.”  This is sage advice for all of us!

Hear and see Jill (slightly limp from the rain in NYC during the show!) below…
