I recommend creating art and donating it to local charity auctions. Be sure to supply them with lots of cards with your contact info and link to your website where you can sell your art. Set up shows locally. Coffee shops are a great place for a first time artist show. Again, have lots of cards available. Join a local artists guild. Get your name and your art out there! But don’t quit your day job! You have to build up your name and hone your craft. It’s hard work, but you can do it!
