To my future students!
I'm honored you're here as you consider making me part of your art career journey. I understand just how hard it can be to navigate making money from your art. Even after graduating with an art degree, I stumbled my way through earning money from my art, relying on my day job as a coffee shop manager for steady income while I navigated the highs and lows of building my art business.
But eventually, I found my footing! Today, I license my artwork to major retailers and companies and sell my own products in over 1,000 stores! And one of my secrets to success has been through leveraging my artwork–opening up endless opportunities!
With this course, my hope is to save you some heartaches as you start your own art career journey by sharing what has worked for me and my business. Each of you has a unique perspective and story. I cannot wait to see you share it with the world!
