Program Description


You dream of being an artist, but…

Aren’t sure how to go part or full time as an artist.

Think you can’t start a business because you have no resources.

Dread networking and have no idea how to get clients.

Do not know how to brand or market or use PR for your art.

Not sure how to build a relationship with your collectors.

Fearful you can’t make a real living as an artist.


YOU are the reason I created the Art Biz Jumpstart System!

You see, I have been where you are and understand the frustration, hesitation, and fear that comes with not only putting your art out there but, also to make a living with it.

With the heart of an artist, the skill of a marketer, and the tenacity of an entrepreneur, I put all my 25+ years of professional experience together for your access in the Art Biz Jumpstart System.

You know that creating a living from your art is what you want and I can help. You gotta start somewhere, but, you don’t have to start alone. I am here to encourage and help you start your path of being a professional artist.

What is The Thriving Artist all about? Two years ago I started on a path — you could even call it a quest — to help artists like you thrive in their art career. I had experienced my own detours on my path to being an artist and understood the frustrations first hand. I decided to find the most sought after mentors, experts, and artists to learn the how’s and why’s of their success and produced The Thriving Artist Summit. I really didn’t know where this quest would take me. To date it has inspired and educated thousands of artists (140,000+ downloads) around the world (over 90 countries). I have become friends with over 50 amazing mentors. And — stay tuned — I have more in store for us!
