Over the course of my career I have met countless talented artists. Most of them were exhibiting in or wanting to exhibit in galleries around the world. They all had one thing in common - they didn't understand that they needed to grab their incredible creativity to benefit their own businesses. Thinking about the missed opportunities over the years and sharing my tips and suggestions with many, I have finally been persuaded to make it official and start a business helping artists with their sales and marketing. I know what galleries are looking for and how they find artists. I know many galleries that ARE looking at portfolios and I also know many organizations that help and assist emerging artists establish themselves and get started. Of course, this seems obvious to me now to share this information to the benefit of artists but marketing for me, is like second nature and part of my personality type. Put me in a studio with a brush and a canvas and I'm lost. The internet is my canvas and I know how to harness creativity for business purposes. Creating a unique email blast, showing off a body of art work in its best light and finally making sales - this is what I do best. I'm looking forward to helping you with your marketing challenges. Thank you.
