I know firsthand how amazing and yet isolating it can be to develop your art while simultaneously learning how to run a business (and let's not forget being responsible for raising wonderful children, holding down a steady job to ensure there's food in the fridge, and juggling everything else).
I’m so thrilled to bring you this program, because I was exactly where you are now - pushing my art and passion backstage because Real Life always (always!) had such a clever ways of showing up to steal the spotlight.
I struggled for years with crippling self-doubt and just dabbling in anything and everything related to art. When friends praised my art, I just thought, If they only knew. It took years to be able to call myself an Artist. Even then, I despaired of ever doing something with my art. And when it came down to it, I didn’t like spending every day in the studio working on art. I didn’t feel that it was my soul’s work, not my passion! The Artful Career Academy is my soul’s work and I am uniquely able to help other struggling artists to discover and claim their own path.
I’m also a single mom and I know that family comes first, so I understand how difficult it is to work on your art full-time or go back to traditional school.
With all of this, I can help you reach your goals through the Artful Career Academy.
During the Academy, you’ll have complete access to the experience I've gained over the last 20 years - which will save you from all of the costly errors and missteps that inevitably landed me where I am today.
It’s a major privilege to be able to provide my students with a specialized career roadmap for artists with this signature career development program.
