Grow your art practice and brand in an intensive workshop

designed for artists who want to excel to the master level.

For all art mediums (painting, drawing, collage, paper, sculpture, fabric, etc.)

Build your portfolio of work with three days of dedicated time to create.


This is not a “how to” workshop, but rather open studio time for you to dig into your practice and to work in a creative environment.

Connect with your artist tribe.

Share information and ideas about your creative process and medium.

Learn from each other.

Explore collaborations.


Work with a professional photographer to create a visual story of you and your work.

You'll receive seven beautiful digital photos that can be used on your web page, social media, and in other promotions.

Put the "wow" into how you write and talk about yourself and your art. You'll explore what's unique and interesting about YOU.

Work with a writer/editor to polish your story.

You'll leave with one to two pages of copy that can be cut and pasted into artist statements, biographies and elevator speeches, along with a three-minute artist talk.


Hear from a panel of art marketers what's hot and what's not in selling art – including traditional as well as emerging markets.

You might have attended other workshops, read branding books, but here’s what I focus on: ACTION.

So my workshop isn’t just about sitting around, absorbing information, it’s about real, actionable tools you can use to assess, define, and implement your brand and brand strategies.

Absolutely no one can do it for you. ONLY YOU can do it, and you can’t do it unless you get started.

So if you’re ready to stop questioning every strategic business decision you make, every picture you post, and why you’re doing what you’re doing, you’re ready to build an awesome brand!
