If there is one aspect of being an artist I am most an expert at, and an expert at helping you, it's how to find and develop:
-a unique personal style
-a consistent practice despite life’s odds
-and the BIG WHY in one's work.
Throughout my lifelong journey as an artist I have learned how to cut through the noise of visual and social trends and stay aligned with what truly inspires my heart. Because of that, dream clients, dream spaces and creative opportunities consistently show up in my inbox.
Through the process of a creative mentorship I will help guide you through the resistance, frustrations and growth in the artistic journey, bringing you closer to your unique visual voice and personal and professional artistic goals.
Over the next four months, we will work together on developing your individual style, finding a subject matter that makes your heart skip a beat, and unearthing your core WHY so that you feel a sense of purpose and excitement about the work you are making. And then, you can keep on making it with ease. Once you are clear on your WHY and your values that drive your work, your motivation will be on fire. No more dragging your feet.
Mentorships are by application only, and are scheduled in four-month commitments and longer in order to establish a consistent habit of art-making and self discipline in your practice so that the rate of your growth is faster, your body of work more substantial and the themes of your work more clearly visible.
