What do you get when you combine the skills of a hardnosed business editor with those of an experienced art teacher?
Founders, husband and wife team, Tim and Caroline Saunders share a passion for arts and crafts.
They realise that professional artists and craftspeople do not want to waste their valuable time promoting themselves when, let’s face it, they would much rather be producing work. That’s why there's a need for Creative Coverage.
Prior to being Business and Motoring Editor at the Bournemouth Daily Echo, Tim wrote regular articles for The Artist and The Craftsman magazines. During his time at the Echo, he achieved 100 words per minute shorthand and developed his writing style while working to tight deadlines, juggling an extremely heavy workload and networking. Tim writes press releases and is regularly commissioned by UK and international publications to produce features about Creative Coverage members.
Caroline, an art teacher and herself an artist, enjoys producing landscapes using oils. As well as being a doting mother to Harriett, Heidi and Henry, Caroline also interviews artists for The Artist magazine, designs literature and websites as well as publishing books for our members. With an extensive network of business contacts and a growing list of media outlets, Creative Coverage is a winning formula for the savvy professional artist or craftsperson demanding greater recognition.
We also handle PR for some notable galleries and societies. Creative Coverage provides a friendly and approachable service at a fraction of the cost of a PR agency with many more benefits besides including: gallery and outlet approaches, networking and exhibition opportunities.
Join Creative Coverage today and reap the rewards. Many of our members have sold work because of introductions we have made or exhibitions we have organised. Others ask us to help with their web presence and to take the hassle away from selling online.
A notable success, among many others, is longstanding member Sarah Pye, known for her large floral canvases. We have designed her website and also host it. Gallery introductions we have made on her behalf have resulted in some splendid sales. Meanwhile, Tom Lund-Lack sold three of his unframed pastels to one customer, in one of our online galleries. Claire Wiltsher's book Journeys from the Forest to the Sea, published by Creative Coverage, continues to sell well and we continue to generate good levels of press coverage for various artists.
Our thanks go to all those Creative Coverage members who renew each year. We are extremely grateful for your loyalty and commitment and look forward to continuing our work with you all on this exciting journey.
