The Lemont Artists Guild presents, via Zoom, artist Margaret Park who will talk about how she uses FASO (Fine Art Studio Online), an online platform, to market her artwork. She will introduce Dave Gaeda who is the CMO at FASO and BoldBrush. While artists are always intrigued in watching other artists explain their artistic techniques and see how they work, there are very few resources to explain, how, once created, artists can show their artwork online. As the world navigates during a pandemic and cannot be together like we once were, having a window to understanding one of the many art marketing platforms is such a necessity these days to help artists make the right choices when showing and marketing their artwork online.

Margaret is an experienced artist and works with a variety of media. Margaret’s love of painting was first fostered by the compliments and encouragement of her high school art teacher. A difficult childhood had left her feeling worthless and those kind words were the kernel of self worth that grew over the years. Her painting not only gave her life meaning but she found that it quieted and centered her soul.  Her after high school art studies were sporadic and diverse and included time at the American Academy of Art, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Park District Field Houses, the Hyde Park Art Center and finally private classes with Rebecca George who owns The Art House and has a master’s degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. While her studio is currently the second floor of her home in Chattanooga, TN, her art marketing is done mostly on a laptop on her screen porch where she can listen to the splashing of her small waterfall, the sweet song birds and watch her garden grow. Her son is currently living with her, much to her delight, as well as a large tabby cat named Walter, three goldfish that keep outgrowing their home and a blue and red betta fish named Finny-gyn who shares space with a large gathering of snails. Margaret has 3 children, 6 step-children, and eleven grandchildren.

As a result of her hard work and perseverance, Margaret has exhibited in many shows in Chicago and suburbs and the Chattanooga, Tennessee area. She is able to primarily sell her artwork on the internet and has sold her artwork both nationally and internationally. In her quest to show and sell her artwork online, she found FASO, the company that she will speak about that not only offers templates for professional looking websites specifically for artists but they also have a marketing program that works. She is excited to introduce Dave Geada, who is the CMO of BoldBrush and FASO.  In his almost decade with FASO, he has spoken with thousands of visual artists. He has helped many of them grow their art sales by developing and applying the best practices that he developed from working with these artists. He has turned all this know-how into a proven and personalized step-by-step guide to art marketing called The Art Marketing Playbook Formula. It teaches you what you need to do to grow your art sales yourself in as little time as possible based on you and where you are in your art career. He has also developed a complementary program called The Art Marketing Playbook Program that teaches artists the best way to put each step in their roadmap into action so they get results faster.  For more information on Margaret and Dave visit,,
