Website Design for Artists

If you are an artist without a website (or would like your current one redesigned), you can contact me to discuss this personalized service (limited and selective).

You provide the photos and content, I'll design the website on your or my host account (see bottom of page). Presentation sites only - no e-commerce sites or form services offered. 

Custom designed websites and future maintenance costs are charged at a flat rate of $30 per hour. Feel free to contact me for an estimate.

Some Example Sites:

Client quote: "I can't begin to tell you how thrilled I am with how the site is going, but most of all, how wonderful you are to work with. I very much appreciate your flexibility and wonderful sense of design and artistry. I am going to have one of THE most fabulous websites on the internet!" - Jean-Marie Chapman

Client quote: "You are brilliant as well as reliable. I'll pass your name around.There are many artists who feel frightened by the idea of approaching someone with regard to building a site.........but you, as an artist would be easily accepted. On the strength of what you are doing for me I would be glad to recommend you and offer a testimonial. I've enjoyed working with you and love the site". - Stuart Williamson

Client quote: "You are clearly a powerehouse of creativity and hard work. I am so very very pleased with what you’ve done. I think it looks great. I feel empowered with you at the helm of my website and I have felt relaxed about giving my site address to people and enough pride to not be embarrassed for a change! It’s been fantastic being able to just confidently give the site address to people hither and thither. I’m looking for a studio and I’m taken more seriously once the people concerned have had a look….no question ". - Karen Newman

About Domains and Hosts

To have your site viewable on the Internet, you need to have both a registered domain name and your files hosted on a web server. This can be done in one of two ways:

For Beginners

I can setup your hosting service on my reseller account and register the domain name of your choice. With this option, no direct involvement or technical knowledge is required on your part. I administer the site, perform all site maintenance, do all of the setup and renewals, and pay the monthly fees to the hosting service. You are billed monthly or annually for this service through me. This option is best if you are a web novice.

For Advanced Users

The other option is for you to set up, register, and control your own hosting account. You register the domain name and pay the monthly hosting and registration fees to the hosting company of your choice. Once I build the site on your host's server, you have complete control over it, including editing and future maintenance. This option is best if you have experience with building web sites, including using html editors, image editors, FTP upload programs, CGI scripts, and SQL databases.

Hosting Services:

If you choose to host your own site, there are literally thousands of domain registrars and hosting companies to choose from and it can be confusing. I have chosen to use MicFo to host this site, but can also recommend HostMonster or GoDaddy as sites that offer decent services at a reasonable price.Once you have a domain and host, anyone can design, build, and upload your site for you. When researching hosts for an artist site, keep in mind that 100 MB disk and 5 GB bandwidth is more than you will ever use so buying unlimited storaged space and bandwidth, etc. is pretty useless.
