Breaking into the art industry can be an immense challenge. There is so much misinformation, smoke and mirrors, which seem designed to keep artists in the dark about the reality of what it takes to succeed professionally. We developed Advice for Artists in the hopes of demystifying this process. Having honest and open conversations about the industry is our mission. As part of this, we are developing educational offerings that level the playing field and provide a refreshing perspective.

Currently, I meet with artists in small group roundtables and one-on-one consultations on a regular basis, as well as for occasional single-topic workshops. If you are an artist in surface design, home decor, publishing, or editorial work and looking to learn more about the industry; or an established artist looking to advance your business and not sure how to get there, the courses listed below will help you.

Additionally, we offer a free Advice for Artists newsletter, which includes insights into issues artists typically face as well as updates on the services we provide. Stay informed by signing up today!
