Recently I spent about 45 minutes talking about art licensing with Antrese Wood of the Savvy Painter.  It was one of those “are you open to explaining how art licensing works” kind of calls where I didn’t know what the specific questions would be ahead of time.  Some people hate that but I find it rather fun… I mean I knew what the basics would be but then we get to move into sometimes uncharted territory through organic conversation.

Listen where we went with this discussion about art licensing over on her site > SavvyPainter.com/tara-reed/


A little about Artese Wood, the Savvy Painter:

I’m an artist, just like most of you. About seven years ago, I took a giant leap and quit my job art directing video games for Disney. Not long after, I took another giant leap and moved to Argentina. Crazy, right?

In the first episode of the Savvy Painter podcast, I tell you a little bit about who I am and what you can expect from the show to grow your art career.

By listening to the Savvy Painter podcast, you will:

  • Learn from artists who have been there before.
  • Expose yourself to new ideas that inspire you to push your studio work farther and build your business.
  • Learn to analyze other peoples marketing solutions and adapt them to suit you.

Moving to Argentina made selling my artwork more challenging- at first- until  I came up with a project that took full advantage of my location. I pulled it off and sold close to 200 paintings. In future episodes, we will dig deep into that process, and talk to other artists who have done something similar.


I recommend you go check out all the other interviews she has created – lots of different people talking about ways to earn an income with art!

Here’s to your creative success!
