Why work with me? Just like you, I'm a multi-passionate artist. I've gone through what you are going through. Over the last 20 years, I've taken a gazillion(!) classes, and spent way too much on art supplies (who doesn't love a trip to the art store??). I lacked confidence with my art, I struggled so much. It took years of work before I started selling my paintings.
My big leap came when I sold my first pour painting, seemingly by accident, on Instagram. I sold 9 more paintings in the next two months, including several commissioned for the holidays. Sometimes, all it takes is a little outside push and everything you’ve been working for, falls into place. There are no overnight successes, it’s a long road, but we can use shortcuts to get us there if you’re willing to take action.
Using my background in counseling and high tech operations, and years studying business in this global online economy, I developed my business coaching practice. I love helping artists 1:1 but as the years went by, it felt like there was a roadmap missing. A step-by-step shortcut I could give artists to help them start their art careers rather than just focusing on developing their styles. The Artful Career Academy (ACA) came to me one afternoon in a flash of inspiration (I'm sure you've had those!) and it is my soul's work!
So excited to welcome you to the first course in ACA: Design Your Artful Career. I'm looking forward to seeing you take that big leap and be ready to start 2019 with confidence.
