Angela Sasser is an Atlanta-based writer and illustrator. She specializes in character-driven fantasy art and Art Nouveau painting, as well as creating beautifully decorative handmade masquerade masks. In order to keep her portfolios tight and focused, she wanted to create three new sites. Angela spent three weeks putting together three different portfolios for her art, all using Make & Make Plus.
Tell us a little bit about your websites?
I’m a freelance creative professional and I use my websites as an online portfolio to share my work with other individuals and companies seeking illustrations and other creative work. I have multiple sites, all utilizing Make, which bring the varying facets of my creative personality to my clients. I create everything from whimsical Art Nouveau Paintings to decorative masquerade masks to character-driven fantasy art.
Why did you pick Make & Make Plus for the website? Were you looking for specific features?
Make was recommended to me by another creative professional (a writer) because it is extremely easy to use. Most artists aren’t very skilled at coding, which made Make’s simplicity appealing. I also needed a theme that was pliable enough to be adapted for use with my varied creative facets so I could make each site have its own identity. I also needed something compatible with WooCommerce, which is the e-commerce solution I picked for my business. Make suited all of these needs for me!
How long did it take you to put a site together? What was the process like?
It didn’t take long to finish my websites. I would estimate about a week spent on each one and that’s because I am extremely meticulous in my setup and presentation.
Has Make & Make Plus made an impact on your web presence?
I had a hand-built site before. It was unstable, didn’t display correctly on multiple devices, and difficult to update. Make, by contrast, is very stable, scales well to various devices, and makes my site very easy to update so I can spend more time creating in the studio instead of updating websites!
How can we follow you? Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.?
You can find me at the following places. Social links are listed at the top of each site so you can follow which facet of me you prefer:
- My Fantasy Art
- My Art Nouveau Paintings
- My Masquerade Masks and Leathercrafts
- My Art Reviews and Stock Resources
Do you use Make? Let us know on Twitter (hashtag: #iusemake). We’d love the opportunity to feature your site!
