What's Your Next Step?

Feel like you need a little extra something to get a jump start on your creative juices? I provide an experience to make your work come to life and get the attention it deserves?

I’m an artist coach for committed artists who want to develop their expertise, business and earn money from their art and get shown. They’re usally beginners in the business of art and feel frustrated that they aren’t selling more and aren’t sure what to do about it. I help them grow their art business so they can earn an income from their creative endeavors while staying true to what they make.

I work with both new and experienced artists, makers and creatives who want to learn how to sell more work, get more press and build a business based on their creative endeavors. The people I work with are action-takers that want to grow and up-level their art career. They know if they get their questions answered, they’ll be able to get ahead.
