Art schools have gotten better about teaching some business topics, but they leave a lot to be desired. Most graduates come out of school with technical skills to be an artist, but no knowledge of how to run a business or market your work.
Beyond that, traditional galleries are going by the wayside every day, the world has moved online, everyone has a suggestion for what you should be doing (but never HOW to do it), and it has all become so complicated that you’re more confused than ever.
You’re passionate about creating art and I’m passionate about helping you make a living. As the founder of the Art Marketing Project, I am dedicated to helping creative entrepreneurs thrive.
I have committed most of my career to working in the visual arts and with artists. I also gave birth to a fine artist, who is attending art school and planning to make a living with her art. As you can see, I have a vested interest in the topic!
After spending years as a graphic designer and working in non-profit organizations, I took a position at the Art Students League of Denver, where I managed marketing and promotions for their fine art school and summer art festival. After that, I landed my dream job at the Denver Art Museum, where I managed advertising and promotions. I have also served on the board of the Art District on Santa Fe and presented marketing workshops for Boulder County Arts Alliance and Arts Longmont.
Work with me and you’ll have someone on your team who:
- has deep knowledge and experience in marketing
- understands art patrons and how to best reach them
- gives you thoughtful recommendations and step-by-step details for how to accomplish them
- believes in you and your creativity
I look forward to helping you,
