Karin Jurick's framing business took a dive after 9/11. In a
desperate attempt to save the shop and to keep from having to
layoff her employees, she began to paint. Karin kept the framing
business going for another 7 years by subsidizing the shop with
sales from her oil paintings. Eventually painting became more
lucrative than her framing business.
Karin sells the majority of her work online using eBay. In this episode, Karin and I talk about building a fanbase, trust, getting payments and how she navigates the sometimes choppy waters of selling art online.
