Keep it simple: Write your statement in a language that’s easy to understand and read. Don’t use technical terms you learned in art school, but everyday language that can be understood by the average person that appreciates your art.
Not too long: Keep it to one page, three to five paragraphs of three to five sentences. Provide basic information such as why you make your art, what inspires you to create, what’s unique about your work and what successes have you had.
Make “I” statements: Your statement should be written in first person. Talk about what your art does for you and not how your readers are suppose to feel.
Avoid comparing yourself to other artists: If you have an artist that’s been an influence, that’s great, but don’t make repeated statements such as “Like Picasso I do this”. Your best bet is leaving other artists out of your statement and let your fans decide who you remind them of.
Not all artists can write: If you are really having trouble putting your artist statement together, then reach out to someone for help. There are many freelance writers out there that have experience in writing them and can create just what you need.
