  1. Awesome Steve… I can’t wait to read all about the art of marketing art! I’ve been struggling with that aspect of it for some time now. I would love to learn more about licensing if you care to share any knowledge you have about that. And what a great idea…

  2. Marianne,
    Great question about art licensing. Kay has a licensing agreement with Custom Craft for needlepoint patterns and they have produced 3 designs so far. A friend of Kay’s suggested she approach the company. We reviewed their web site and sent them an e-mail with pictures. We were shocked to get a positive response followed by a contract. 6 months later Kay got her first check. Almost everything that we have learned about licensing has been from an expert named Maria Brophy. Go to She has a newsletter and lots of great information. There is lots to know about the subject and she’s a great guide. She even has sample contracts and things to avoid. I’m just a rookie at this. Let me know if her information is helpful.
