I am an artist, and have been since I was a child. My girlfriend constantly tells me that my work is great, as does everyone else. I have considered making a website for it, but how well do you think it would work? I don't want to necessarily monetize it with adsense, but rather offer commission work from it.

Questions:

1. How do you optimize an art website? What are good keywords to use for ranking and being "Discovered"?

2. How should I promote it to gain clients?

3. Do you have any experience with something similar?


Thanks everyone.
