Art Career Coaching

Determine prices for your art and understand the marketplace
I consult privately with practicing visual artists at different career levels, providing a range of support, research and education services customized to fit individual needs and circumstances. I offer studio critiques to artists who are working on developing their portfolios, and writing and editing services to artists who need help with their statements, web content or catalog text. A majority of artists work with me to achieve more sales, publicity and exposure for their art. I review and evaluate studio inventory and text materials; suggest website improvements and web-based/social networking tools for publicity and outreach; define appropriate markets and audiences in order to research best options for residencies, exhibition submissions and proposals; and, establish a series of time-based goals and actions that will result in greater exposure and increased opportunities.
ArtSpark is dedicated to shifting the arts ecosystem where artists live and work. The current arts ecosystem is confusing, frustrating, fragmented and full of inefficiencies. ArtSpark envisions a realigned arts ecosystem that minimizes the burden of building and managing the business of being an artist so artists can remain true to their creative practice and art.
To that end, ArtSpark offers workshops and technical assistance to artists, artisans, designers, makers and creative entrepreneurs focused on business development (Artist Business Canvas workshops), communications (including social media), fundraising, marketing and branding, audience development and community engagement. ArtSpark also connects artists (and designers, makers, etc.) to creativity-friendly business professionals and online resources in their communities.
