The Working Artist will transform your career.
You struggle to sell your artwork. You’re anxious to get into the best galleries but fear you don’t have the right credentials or contacts. You’re jealous of your colleagues. You’re afraid that time is passing and you’ll never achieve the success you desire.
What’s wrong with this picture?
These beliefs are limiting and don’t serve you. It’s the fears and uncertainty that hold you back, but knowledge and action can catapult you forward. Are you ready?
I truly believe that this is your time – if you believe it too.
My gift lies in empowering artists like you to gain the clarity, direction, and focus to transform your art-making practice into an authentic and rewarding career. You can have sell-out shows, have work collected by museums, and draw a faithful collector base. This is an incredible time to be an artist!
"99% of the artists I know should take this course." - James Robischon, Robischon Art Gallery, Denver.
I know what I’m talking about.
I’ve spent my career in the art business, personally selling over $10 million worth of art - with an average price point of $2500. That’s a lot of art! I’ve sold art to international galleries and collectors and I’ve place work nearly every major collection in the USA.
In this program, I share the truth about how the art business really works, everything I know and every secret I’ve learned. I show you exactly what it takes to thrive as a working artist.
I’m doing it now. I’ve trained others to do it. And if you do the work, you can do it too.
