Congratulations Donte! Really great first step!

With over 20 years working with galleries, artists, students, and designers, I can say your style, initiative, and content is going to impress a lot of people!

Here are some suggestions:

1. Add an About page. People want to know and see the artist. Make sure your self-portrait (if you choose to include one) is as cool as your art. Also, make sure on this About page to have a short paragraph on your education and influences: art school, classes, teachers, anything; tattoo-culture (sugar skulls), Prince (neon purple), whoever; and lastly add a link to your inventory, so people can circle back to the content once they're done.

2. Add a Products page. Looks like your style is very merch-friendly. I could see all kinds of additional products in addition to your original works. Think "museum shop" here.

3. Keep working on the style of fonts and buttons and the little details. I think the current font choices aren't exactly there yet as far as communicating your aesthetic in text. Squarespace has a bunch of great built-in fonts and you'll find some (maybe no more than two or three) that work for you best.

Let me know if you need more feedback!
