Positively Creative

Oct 12, 2017

Dorothy had the chance to sit down with Beth Winterburn, an abstract fine artist and discuss how she started creating abstract thanks to a friend's request.  Beth discusses how she prices her artwork and how she releases collections online, which helps with seasons of creating, packaging, uploading online, and helps give herself breaks.
