Online Coaching & Art Marketing Courses

Just starting out?

Maybe someone told you that you ought to be selling your art, but you're not quite sure you're ready. Or perhaps you're exploring, but you don't know where to begin.

Emerging artist?
You have a solid body of work and you're testing the waters. You've gained some recognition, and you're ready to invest more energy in your art career.

Established artist?
You've been around awhile. You're known, but you might be in a rut. Or maybe you're heading a different direction and could use some ideas and support along the way.

Alyson B. Stanfield, a former museum director, is now one of the top artist coaches in the USA. She is the author of the bestseller "I'd Rather Be in the Studio" and she was one of the panelist with me at a recent SmARTist Telesummuit.

You must check out her website. It's simply brimming with ideas and information every artist needs.

Annual Teleseminar & Specialized Webinars

'SmARTist Telesummit Audio & PDF Programs'

In January 2009, SmARTist International assembled a panel of 11 experts in the art world for 2 full weeks of in-depth seminars and panel discussions. They included a top gallery owner, art consultant, art career coach, art law expert and more.

As a full-time career artist, I was invited to speak about how artists can make themselves stand out and succeed.

These symposiums are held every year. All the experts' sessions are recorded and made available as mp3 andPDF Guides.They are crammed with valuable advice, bonus extras and necessary information for any artist who wants to make progress. You can either order the entire artist resources programs or just the sessions that interest you.

This is for you IF:

  • You want your artwork in the world but are confused, or overwhelmed, about the best way to go about this.
  • You toy with the idea of working as a full time artist, but aren’t sure where to start.
  • You work as a full time artist, but want new ideas and inspiration for putting your work in the world.

E-Book Guide for Taking Portfolio Photos

Shirley Williams e-book

'Stand out in a Crowd with Dazzling Photos'

My Bestselling E-Book

If you're an artist who wants to show your artwork to galleries and collectors in the most professional manner possible, you need this e-Book. This is the only "how to" book to give simple, step-by-step instructions in plain English.

Over the past twenty years of my art career, I've learned exactly what juries and galleries want to see. I've learned how they want your artwork presented. And I've learned all the insider tips on making your artwork stand out from the crowd.

In 2008, I won a National Artist Competition based entirely on my portfolio materials. Since them, I'm often asked to give workshops and professional lectures on the topic. In early 2009 Smartist International asked me to write this e-book and it's become a bestseller online.

In addition to the main e-book loaded with in-depth information, there are three extra artist resources sections available.

Three extra reports provide even more information!

  • Special Report #1 - Your Guide to Digital Image Formats
  • Special Report #2 - How to Organize Digital Image Art Files
  • Special Report #3 - How to Archive Digital Images of your Art
  • Click here and learn more about my "Stand Out in a Crowd" e-Book

Contact Me if you know other specially useful artist resources. I'll be sure to post them for the benefit of other artists.
