Hello! I'm Stacie.

Are you ready to leverage your art into your dream career?

I've been exactly where you are: you are dreaming of having a career as an artist. I graduated with an art degree, but then became a coffee shop manager because I didn't know how to make money with my art.

I started selling my own artwork online. I realized that I could leverage my artwork by selling products wholesale, licensing my art, doing custom work, and creating book illustrations. The possibilities seemed endless!

Over the last 12 years, I've transformed my tiny illustration company Gingiber from a nursery print side hustle into a fully formed, multi revenue stream creative powerhouse.

I license my artwork to MAJOR retailers and companies, sell my own products in over 800 stores, and have an amazing online community who purchase my products directly from my on my own website.

I am here to teach you exactly how I did it, save you years of trial and error, and give you the advice and tips I wish someone had given me when I launched my business.

The Leverage Your Art course has exceeded my expectations! It's all about creating multiple revenue streams for your business. And business is all about making decisions. This course allowed me to look into many available options, compare and choose the best for myself. It gives me confidence and takes a lot of guessing out of the process. I also like that Stacie is so honest and open with her students, sharing about her experiences and expertise.

"I was one of those at the beginning on the fence to join because it really is a big investment, but halfway through the course i realized that even if the class were to stop here, it would’ve been worth it. If I knew how much I’d end up learning before I joined , I would’ve done it right away without hesitation. Regardless of where you are on your journey, you'll end up learning a ton. You will also realize that there really is a formula to succeeding and Stacie breaks it down for you step by step. Its approachable, challenging, and delightful. Do it."

Leverage was so full of content and value that I hardly know where to start. I could (and will) watch it over and over again. It helped to take a lot of the mystery out of the business side of selling your art. It gave me practical, actionable steps to begin realizing my dreams. Thank you, Stacie for your transparency and frank honesty. Your openness and willingness to just put it all out there is inspiring and very much appreciated. - A Grateful Alumni...Robin

"Before Leverage, I was purely focusing on building my portfolio and trying to license by work.  When I discovered Stacie and the idea of leveraging my art across multiple income streams, it ignited a fire in me.  I instantly wanted to sign up to Leverage Your Art and learn all about it.  A few months later I had an online shop, taken wholesale and consignment orders, had a stall at markets, was featured in a book, taught my first in person class, licensed my work and grew my business so much more than I ever dreamed of.  I'm so thankful to Stacie for sharing not only her knowledge but her encouragement and support.  I am so pumped with the direction my business is now taking."

Tiffany Wong

"I was first introduced to Stacie when I saw a Facebook Live interview she did on a Facebook group I am part of. I was instantly drawn to her kindness, fun personality and in awe of how much knowledge she had and her willingness to share that with us. When Leverage Your Art was announced I knew I had to take this opportunity to learn more from her. After trying to guide myself through the business of surface design and art licensing for a few years now, I realized that I needed more guidance and this course gave me that. I gained so much more knowledge and insight to this business from someone who has proven success. Thank you Stacie for being so kind, generous with your knowledge and real! I do believe this course is an investment for my business and I am eager and excited to implement what I have learned!"

Kris Ruff

"I took Leverage because my art licensing business had plateaued and I needed to figure out how to reach the next level. The course covered many different revenue streams (some of which I'd never thought of) and the guest speakers were top-notch, providing great insights into their specialties. At the end of each week, I'd write in my notes, "what makes sense for me right now" and put down my thoughts. I realized that what DIDN'T fit was as important as what DID, allowing me to narrow down a direction from all the possibilities. It's fun to go back and see how my perceptions changed throughout the course. A year later my revenue is up about 150% and I feel more confident and more hopeful about the direction my business is heading."
