Creating a website that is unique
In a world of mass production, people are falling in love with unique handmade things.
Art and love are the same thing: It’s the process of seeing yourself in things that are not you. ~ Chuck Klosterman
There is something so special about owning something unique, whether it be the perfect imperfections or the loving touch that someone has deliberately put into creating something. Handmade products are a celebration of culture, a celebration of tradition and imagination. Call me old-fashioned but I love the time, effort and technical ingenuity put into something handmade. Each creation has part of the maker in it and we are reflected in what we choose to buy!
Website Design for artists should show your creativity and uniqueness. The website isn't the feature, your art is.

Questions to Consider:
- Is your website there to show your work to people you connect with face-to-face or alternatively is being found on google important?
- Is it to get shares and likes and views, or do you want to convert people into long-term customers?

Co-creation Web Design
Pricilla wanted a custom design that incorporated a mosaic of images on the home page. It was important that she had a unique website with spaces and a variety of sizing, including custom mosaic on the shop page. Creating a responsive functional design was going to be a challenge for her without help.
Results: Unique responsive versions of her ideas, including instructions on how Pricilla can edit the mosaics for both her homepage and shop herself!
Here’s what Priscilla said when I checked in to see how she felt the project had gone:
The video and documentation is so helpful. I've been adding a whole bunch of things to the home page and getting used to the process. And I think it's looking awesome! Thank you so much!

I have worked with Tarnya putting together my portfolio website and making subsequent additions to it. Tarnya rebuilt the site from the ground up in very short time after I was dissatisfied with work done by a previous web builder. It now works properly and has all the capability I wanted. I have always found her very swift and efficient to work with. She understands the brief and always gives me what I want first time. Communication is easy, her response time is quick, and her fees are honest and fair. I would highly recommend her.~John Robertson
Tanya Wolfkamp and Henri Stone:
Tanya Wolfkamp and Henri Stone wanted a website that reflects their belief that every object deserves equal consideration however humble. One of their core values is that everybody should be able to own beautiful things regardless of their budget. Tanya and Henri also wanted a website that they could personally maintain, update, and edit. Could I help Tanya create a responsive functional design that not only showcased their work but enabled them to update and edit their website easily?
I created a website with a clean and tidy look designed to be easy for customers to navigate. It was essential for the artworks and products to be the feature of their new website. I created step-by-step videos to enable Tanya and Henri to edit, upload, and manage their own content.
Here’s what Tanya said when I checked in to see how she felt the project had gone:
You're a treasure! The website is wonderful! The videos have been so helpful."

What our customers say ...
Tarnya takes your vision of your business and translates that into a website which is what you wanted but didn’t know how to describe it.
~ Carol - Start-up Entrepreneur
Your video tutorials were brilliant
I got amazing feedback on the website. Your video tutorials were brilliant and allowed me to make the most of my (tiny) budget by learning how to do much of it myself. And it was fun! I’ve really enjoyed the process and found you to be wonderful to deal with. I’m busy recommending you to everyone I know.
