Dinner with Jonas Almgren CEO of Artfinder.com in Los Angeles

I was fortunate to be invited to attend a meeting of artists in Los Angeles held by Jonas Almgren, the CEO of ArtFinder.com the fastest growing online art retailer and gallery in the world! It is an amazing gallery that I have been with for over 2 years now and could not be happier to have been invited by CEO Jonas Almgren. Ideas were discussed and it was so refreshing to have a gallery actually ask artists what they can do for us to help us sell our art!

Artfinder is a breath of fresh air in the all too often elitist, stale, and frankly boring art sales scene. They are truly the future of selling fine art and after spending the evening with Jonas and hearing him speak with such passion and honesty I am more confident than ever about the future of selling my work online and especially excited be a part of the artfinder family!
