I have been using WIX to host my website for about a year now. I tried several other options before I settled on this one.
This is the most intuitive application that I have ever used hands down. If you are an artist and are looking for a way to create your site this one should defiantly be on your short list. Ease of use, a very robust set of design possibilities and great customer support.
In addition to this they offer an integrated blogging solution that is worth considering.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
