Hi, I'm Amy!
When I started my career in the arts industry in 2010, I noticed two types of artists. The artist who sees their practice as a business, and the artist who doesn't understand that there are basic foundations to have in place that they should be bringing to the table. And the difference in working with these two types was significant.
Throughout those years, I began to sit and work one-on-one with artists from all kinds of backgrounds. Advising, coaching, and mentoring in how to build awareness and run their practice as a business. Each artist came to me with a different set of goals, but overall, there was always the common thread of what needed to be lined up for them foundationally.
Art Fluent has allowed me to connect with artists worldwide, we have reached over 170 countries and territories (and counting). I have used these steps on hundreds of artists to help guide them in their careers, and now I am sharing this process with you!
Especially now, where we find ourselves in a whole new era online. Artists have more control now than ever where they can personally connect with buyers and collectors like never before.
It's time to step up your communication and voice as an artist. It's time to be intentional and invest in your business. This is an investment of time and energy, but it is well worth it and necessary for you to continue to move forward in your practice.
I'm honored you are here, and I can't wait to watch you succeed! We are in such an exciting time, and you can do this! Your art is meant to be shared with the world!
