This listing is for a live 1 hour phone call with me!
Are you a total newbie to selling and marketing your art online? Do you have dreams of turning your creations into a profitable business? Are you overwhelmed by all the information and options out there when you start researching this sorta thing? I CAN HELP!
My name is Becky and I’m an artist and illustrator and I manufacture my own line of products, and I’ve been doing so since 2011. I’m self taught and didn’t go to art school. I have 2 kids (8 and 12) that I’ve raised along side growing my business. I wholesale with 100’s of shops worldwide. I license my art with other companies. I do commissions for clients and other small businesses. I’ve been selling and marketing my art on the internet for 10+ years, and during this time I’ve learned a thing or two. I’d love to share it with you!
HOW DID I FIGURE OUT HOW TO DO ALL THIS?
Years of trial and error and following the bread crumbs. Pitching myself, friending industry experts, traveling to events, asking lots of questions, making lots of mistakes, digging deep into an art making practice that is a true reflection of my soul, redefining success over and over again.
I BELIEVE THAT I HAVE A COLLECTION OF UNIQUE AND VALUABLE EXPERIENCES THAT I’VE GATHERED OVER THE YEARS.
I’ve weeded through the trenches of so many different things! How to go from a doodler to an illustrator, how to make and design my own line of products (with little to no tech skills), how to make a website, how to outsource help, find suppliers, apply to high end craft shows, farmers markets, trade shows, make a killer booth display, pitch to stores and companies. How to find good classes to take, connect with artist support groups. I’ve screen printed thousands of t-shirts and towels in my spare bedroom, I’ve hand sewed and stuffed more pillows than I can remember. I’ve traveled half way across the country to teach at an art retreat. I got started with consignment then moved to wholesale. I’ve made and sold large original paintings, participated in gallery events. I’ve shipped a huge amount of packages from of my home studio, and figured out the best ways to do that. I’ve streamlined what I make and do over the years to fit with the lifestyle I want to live, and support the integrity of the art and products I want to sell. It’s an ongoing cycle! Always learning, always curious, always problem solving. Running a business is like one huge creative adventure!
I see a surge of new artists and creatives out there on the internet, more than ever right now. I think as we start to come out of this pandemic, so many of us are in a place where we are ready to follow our dreams. No more excuses! Life is too short.
I’m super passionate about sharing my knowledge and experiences with others who have similar aspirations, but are feeling lost. I know how overwhelming it can be when you’re first starting out, and how intimidating asking questions can be.
I WANT TO INVITE YOU INTO THIS SAFE SPACE TO ASK ME ALL YOUR QUESTIONS, JUDGMENT FREE.
I’ve been where you’re sitting. I know how scary it is to dive into the unknown. I know what it feels like to be clueless of how to get from point A to point B.
By meeting with me One-on-One for a phone or Zoom mentoring session I’ll share with you my advice, tailored to your own story. As artists, we all come into this line of work from such unique places. No two stories are the same. My hope is to give you more clarity, tips, inspiration, and motivation to continue on your own unique path so you too can have a thriving and fulfilling career with your art.
I believe there’s room for you! In fact, the world needs your art more than ever right now.
If you connect with what I do, I’d love to talk! After purchasing this listing you will receive an email with a few questions to help me prepare for our chat. Then we can arrange a time to hop on the phone, FaceTime, or Zoom (whatever works best).
