Artfinder’s mission is to empower artists everywhere to turn their craft into a living, to give them the tools to become their own best salesperson. Unlike portfolio sites, Artfinder puts the control directly in the artist’s hands, allowing them to shape and market their brand to the world.
It's one thing to provide your customer with clear, well-lit images of your product. But by going that extra step further and presenting the artwork in context or with a frame, you remove that element of guesswork so frequently associated with purchasing online - how will it look in my home?
