Who and where are you?
My name is Stacey Zimmerman and I am a self-taught acrylic artist living in Raleigh, NC. I’m a mom of three amazing children and wife to a loving husband of 19 years. Currently I have my artwork in two local independent shops here in Raleigh and Wake Forest. My ideas come from nature and the wonder of color. I paint how I see colors through my eyes and hope to provide illuminating colors to inspire the viewer.
How were you introduced to Facebook?
I discovered Facebook through friends and after using a personal account became aware of the business pages available. I was hooked after communicating and interacting with the visitors. It was like stepping into my shop and having a cup of coffee with a guest.
Any tips for other artists starting a Facebook Page?
Try to make your page feel welcoming for visitors by including them in a contest or contemplating ideas you have brewing in your head. Also, post photos of your work in progress. Visitors enjoy actually seeing your creative process. Be creative and make it your own!
What’s your favorite Facebook Page feature?
I find that the Facebook Ads for promoting your page are very affordable and easy to set up. I can target a specific audience, set a daily budget and time frame. It is rewarding to watch my supporter numbers increase daily.
What’s coming next from your studio?
I am working on a series of impressionistic paintings inspired by my favorite artist, Claude Monet. I like to add touches of sparkle and mystery to my paintings by using some iridescent paint/mediums. Everyone could use some spark in their life! My hope is to draw a viewer into my work and provide a sense of happiness and love of life by my use of color.
