 I can help you with the following:

  • GAIN CLARITY & FOCUS:  There are so many directions that you can take your art in, that it can feel overwhelming choosing the best place to put your focus.  I will help you make powerful decisions and commitments to the precise actions you need to take that will create the art business you dream of.
  • ESTABLISH THE RIGHT NICHE FOR YOU:  Together we will sort through all of the things you love and determine what your niche is and how to market to it.
  • SELL YOUR ART:  Let’s brainstorm and determine the best way to increase your art sales and take your art business to the next level.
  • PRICING / PROPOSALS – I’ll help you decide how much $ to charge, what details to cover and I’ll provide you with tips on what a written proposal should contain.
  • AGREEMENT/ART LICENSING AND OTHER DEALS; REVIEW – Offered a deal but not sure if it’s good for you?  I can help!  Using my experience with deal-making, I will consider what’s important to your art career and help you determine if the deal is a good fit for you.
  • ARTIST-AGENT RELATIONSHIPS – Getting into a new relationship, either as an agent or an artist?  I can help you determine the best way to move forward, and if the agreement is fair for both parties.
  • DEAL MAKING and BRAINSTORMING – I’ll help you understand any agreement you are going into, what changes to the deal you should ask for, and will create a course of action for a win-win negotiation with a client.  I’ll also help brainstorm how to launch or land that next big project or client you dream of.

  • RESOLVING PROBLEM CLIENTS AND SITUATIONS – I will help you solve what seems impossible with a difficult client or misunderstanding.
  • BRANDING – I’ll help you determine what you need to do to position your personal “brand” through your marketing efforts online and otherwise.

When I’m finished with you, you will have gained confidence in yourself as a good “business-person” and you’ll breathe a huge sigh of relief!

My expertise is in ART MARKETING, LICENSING AND DEAL-MAKING for creative entrepreneurs (artists & small business owners).  I’ve been in this field for well over a decade and have a great understanding of how small business owners and artists can market and brand themselves.  I’ve also put together hundreds of deals for artists.

I won’t help with: Getting into galleries or grant writing.   (I can, however, help resolve challenges you may have with a gallery director).
