Here’s what I know about you…

 

  • You’re amazing at what you do. You’ve sold art and you’ve taught courses and workshops with success. But when it comes to growing your brand…well, you feel a little stuck.
  • You want to enjoy a profitable business, but you struggle to know how to reach the right audience and what steps to take to get there.
  • You often find yourself daydreaming about having more time in the studio, taking weekends off, and maybe even enjoying a work-free vacation!
  • You finally realized there will never be enough hours in the day for you to cross off everything on your business to-do list, and you can’t ignore it anymore.
  • You know that it’s time for more than just getting by. You’re ready to level up your marketing by successfully managing your social media and creating a website you can be proud of.

Isn’t it about time for a change? I can help.

My Story So Far

I totally get how you're feeling, because I've been there myself.

I have always loved to create. And way back before I had kids, I started my professional art journey as a glass artist. I loved creating all things glass, and I had a little studio where I spent my days with kilns and torches.  My business involved a lot of trial and error, a lot of mistakes, long days in my studio, and weekends packed with setting up and managing displays at various fairs and shows. I spent countless hours researching how to market my art. I fought hard for every dollar I made.

After several years of running my glass business, I felt completely burnt out.

We welcomed two children to our family, and I could no longer spend all of my time promoting my business.

So I waved goodbye to my glass business and decided to dedicate my time to helping other artists with their businesses.

I STARTED SMALL.

I began by offering virtual assistant services to artists in exchange for art classes and before I knew it, helping artists run their businesses was no longer just a hobby for me. I was able to help artists spend more time making art while tapping into my love of organization, systems, and design. Learning more about marketing came as a natural step in helping my clients.

CAN YOU GUESS WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?

My business grew and soon included all things art business-related. I soon learned that my real superpower was in simplifying the overwhelming parts of marketing, and I began to focus on business processes, marketing, and web design.

TODAY

I’m super proud to have created a business focused on helping you as an artist reduce the hustle, get you back in the studio doing what you love, say goodbye to overwhelm and hello to down time, and enjoy a profitable business. Marketing and website templates are just the beginning.
