One on One Coaching

“Don't be satisfied with the stories of others, create your own. Those who create have the most courage.” – Rumi


Through focused 1-on-1 meetings, I help emerging as well as established artists to refine their craft and focus their intent in order to create the very best and fully marketable art. Would you like to sell your art on a regular basis or create beautiful things as a form of healing and satisfaction? Either way I can promise you results that will satisfy your desires.


Picture yourself creating daily art and literally selling it that same day only to have to rush back the next day to create it all again. You may want to instead find yourself creating on a daily basis, without the hustle of a business, to create wonderful and satisfying art that heals and brings peace to you. There is far too much information in the use of art as a healing modality to go into here but rest assured art therapy is now scientifically proven to reduce stress and even heal the mental mind. Art has been said to be one of the main resource’s doctors are now using to heal mental illnesses and build healthy neuro pathways back into the brain.


If you find that you want to use art as a career for helping create a peaceful life or if it is a business pursuit for you then art coaching can literally save you years of research and development. I have packed over 30 years of art and business into my coaching sessions to help all stages of development. I have bestselling books for painting on Amazon and in Barns and Noble and had a successful art gallery in Sandpoint, Idaho for over 20 years. I have numerous awards most recently noted as one of the highest quality art galleries in the Pacific Northwest, by the Spokesman-Review.


You might ask yourself:

- Does my work effectively communicate to the public?
- Is it commercially valid in the area I am pursuing?
- Does my portfolio reflect the quality that buyers look for?
- Do I have a style that hits my market?

What I can help you with:

- Personal coaching in developing a daily practice to build your art and business.
- Honest and constructive feedback on your art.
- Developing your own growth as an artist.
- Build professional work that sells on and off line.
- Developing an approach to marketing my work for consistent sales.

The 1-on-1 coaching sessions I offer online and at my downtown studio provide you with an opportunity to discuss your work, as well as your career goals and how to achieve them. My mission is to help artists in all styles and media reach their full potential in regards to their art business.

How the coaching session works:

Contact me with a brief introduction of you and where you are at this point in regards to your art career and where you’d like to get. If you already have a website, please include the URL. If not, please attach photographs of your 3 most currents work, supported by an artist statement or a brief description of what you are trying to accomplish in your business.

Tell me the areas of your artistic or business practice you are having problems with and where you’d like to see some improvement. Let me know if you are pursuing your art as a career or business. Some artists use their artistic ability to relax their minds and bodies and get very good at the craft. Some artist may want to pursue an art business with financial goals in mind and the difference between a business and career is mainly financial income.

Feel free to contact me if you want feedback on your work, or you'd like to take your career to the next level. I look forward to getting a chance to assist you in your journey of becoming the best artist you can be, as well as in reaching your financial or career goals.
