What do I need to sign up and create a profile?

To join you will need the following:

  • a card to make the payment
  • your images (profile image, your work and a selected photo for the header)
  • your artist statement
  • your selected art form (eg painter, sculptor)
  • your website (if you have one) and email address
  • your social media
  • your cv

It will save a draft as you work and will be made public once you have added a profile photo.

How do I pay for my membership?

We take payment securely through the website using PayPal.

If you don’t have a Paypal account you can just pay using your credit/debit card.

Once payment has been made the membership secretary will be notified.

What size should my images be?

To add your profile you need to add images in the following sizes:

  • your header photo (the photo at the top of your page) should be over 1000px wide
  • your profile photo should be over 190px wide
  • your ‘work’ photos can be any size – but bear in mind that if you add a large number of hi-resolution images it might make your profile slower to load.
