“There was a renewed energy and optimism at the show.” Reed explains. “Manufacturers were looking for fresh designs to fill their needs and more up-beat about opportunities than in the past two years.”
Reed brought more than a dozen new art collections and got great feedback. With a fresh and original take on classic themes like coffee, wine and game night, Tara Reed Designs is poised to fill the growing needs of licensees.
As well as showing her own art for licensing, Reed spoke to a sell-out crowd of 100 artists who attended the SURTEX conference program entitled, “How to Find, Interact and Work with Manufacturers Who License Art”. The class was based on her eBook which is available at http://www.ArtLicensingInfo.com/
“Artists are educating themselves and I believe the industry is growing again.” Says Reed. “The SURTEX show is a valuable piece of my business and I’m thrilled with the response to my art.”
