: I have been a Wildlife artist for over 25 years and feel like I am going around in circle and not going really anywhere.
: Being an artist I am not great at selling or marketing my work.
: Can anyone recommend a contact who would be a reliable source for representing my art?
: Please look at samples of my work and feel free to comment!
: Maybe there is a reason I aren;t getting ahead!

I would suggest two U.S. publications to you, ART CALENDAR magazine ( 1-410-651-9150 or Art Calendar, 27528 Fairmount Rd., Upper Fairmount, MD 21867 USA and AMERICAN ARTIST (subscription info at 1-800-745-8922 or American Artist, 1 Color Ct., Marion, OH 43305 USA Both have articles, monographs and resources for getting your work out there. I read your bio and it sounds like you've had some commercial success. Maybe you haven't built on that over the years? Most artists tend to think of themselves as non-salespeople and non-marketing people, but you at *least* have to sell yourself and your artwork to a good rep, to get them to pitch for you. If you are determined to have someone else do it all for you, you may find some good references or ads for various reps in either of these publications. Good luck to you!
