What Does It Mean to 'Leverage My Art'?

What if you could make your art work smarter, not harder? As artists and entrepreneurs, our time and energy are incredibly valuable. So, we'd better make the most of it. Which is exactly what you'll learn to do in this course!

I'll show you how I curate my own artwork and build on what I've already made to create full collections and illustrations. Not only does this help create a cohesive body of work but it also means I don't have to go to a blank drawing board each and every time I create something new. I then take my artwork across multiple income streams, 'leveraging' what I've already made and using it in as many ways as possible - opening endless opportunities. I cannot wait to show you how to do the same thing through this 8-week course as you incorporate these lessons into your art process.

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!

Since Leverage Your Art, Rebecca has licensed her artwork to a fabric company and a tea towel company and has her products in over a dozen stores!

"I signed up for Leverage immediately after convincing my husband that it would change everything...lol... and then I convinced two of my girlfriends to take it with me, ha! I was so blown away by [Stacie's] generosity in sources and information that you gave us, it was a Christmas miracle! Leverage made me look at the work I had created in the last five years and think about how I could maximize that work. I have been wholesaling for five years and Leverage opened my eyes to new ways to get my products in stores and how to pitch myself with efficiency. 
I feel confident. My wheels are turning and I am super inspired. Since the class ended last summer, I have formed a new LLC, copyrighted 20 pieces, talked with a wholesale rep and created a pitching schedule for stores and licensing! I have also created tea towels, washi tape and sticker all using existing artwork!  have two kids, I am a stay at home mom and I appreciated the realness in all of the live calls."

Stacie was thorough and personal, generous and professional.  I now have information I can continue to access and implement.  I am so thankful for this class as I now feel like I can grow my business at my own pace and in a myriad of ways.  Thank you Stacie!

"I have to say I sat on the fence deciding whether to do it right up till the last minute, but I took the leap of faith and invested in my business and myself and I’m SO glad I did because it’s really paid off. I’ve been a Graphic Designer for over 25 years and now I love that I feel confident in calling myself a Surface Designer as well. Stacie is so authentic and really teaches from her heart. She comes with an abundance of knowledge of the industry which she openly and happily shares with the Leverage community. As a student you really feel like she genuinely cares and wants to help you succeed.

Now I'm consistently pitching my work for licensing and making tangible moves toward wholesale. My website is also 1000% more focused and usable than it was before the course. I've come SO FAR since the class started, and I owe it all to Stacie!

"I’ve been been working in a creative field for the last 20 years, but never for myself. I am also a ceramic artist and love drawing on paper and on my pots. I thought of starting to sell my own home decor products and then surface pattern design came into my orbit. I wasn’t really sure how to get started. So last summer I made a leap and decided to invest in the Leverage Your Art course by Stacie Bloomfield. It’s a very intensive and comprehensive 8-week course. Stacie takes you through a 360º view of creative entrepreneur’s business, teaches about multiple revenue streams and all the different ways you can monetize your artwork. Stacie’s enthusiasm and sincerity is infectious and she really genuinely wants to help everyone succeed. I decided to work on art licensing income stream first and have focused on building my surface design portfolio.  I can definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to become a creative entrepreneur."
