If you’re like most artists, you struggle with the business side of your artwork. It’s frustrating to pour your heart and soul into your artwork, only to have no one see it, no one buy it, and feel like you can’t make ends meet. This is especially true if you have limited time due to another job, kids, or a chronic illness.
If you don’t take control of your art business, you won’t make sales, you won’t gain exposure, and you won’t be able to make money from your work. If you don’t learn to market yourself, you can say goodbye to becoming a well-known artist, to quitting your day job, and to working full-time as a creative.
It may not come naturally to market yourself and think of yourself as an entrepreneur, but as an artist, that’s exactly what you are.
I began drawing after falling chronically ill and being mostly bedridden for a number of years. Even after finally beginning the proper treatment for my illness, my “good” time and energy levels are limited. So I adapted to my circumstances and developed ways to move my art business forward, despite my time limitations. I learned how to boost my productivity during the time I have and prioritize the activities that will actually move my business forward.

What Others Are Saying:
“I just finished reading Corrina Thurston’s book HOW TO BUILD YOUR ART BUSINESS WITH LIMITED TIME OR ENERGY for the second time and I can honestly say that my life would be very different now if I’d had this manual to build an art career in my 20’s! That being said, in the spirit of “never too late,” I will be implementing the many guidelines and pointers she has laid out so plainly in this very smart guide.
That Corrina was able to build a successful art career, essentially from zero (starting to draw from her sickbed to keep busy) to creating quality art, exhibitions, writing and getting grants, collaborations and more is inspirational.
Need a boost for your career? You will likely find the roadmap here, and enjoy the journey!”

How To Communicate Effectively: For Artists & Creatives (COMING SOON!)
Attention Artists and Creatives!
Do you stare at the blank page in frustration when you need to write your artist statement? Does it make your hands sweat when you think about speaking to a crowd, or talking with a prospective client and trying to close a sale? Have you thought about blogging but have no idea where to start or what to write about? Maybe your social media posts aren’t getting the engagement you want or you don’t know what to talk about when a newspaper or magazine wants to interview you?
Whether it’s writing your artist statement, a blog post, copy for your marketing materials, giving a speech, or just talking to a prospective client, you need to be able to communicate effectively. If you can’t get your message across in an efficient and clear manner, no one will pay attention to you. If you can’t write an interesting pitch, media outlets, retailers, and galleries will turn you away. If you can’t hook and engage your audience, your name and your artwork/craft won’t be remembered and your business will stall.
Communication is in everything you do for your creative business. You need to master all its forms in order to rise above the crowd, stand out, and persuade your audience to support your business by buying your work.
This Book Is Coming Soon!
As an artist, speaker, business consultant, and author, communication is involved in everything I do. Whether I’m talking to a client/gallery/retailer/partner, writing a blog post/book/social media post/marketing materials/artist bio, or speaking to a crowd, I need to be clear, concise, and keep my audience engaged.
This new book goes into detail about what it takes to communicate effectively, no matter where you are or what you’re trying to accomplish.
What You’ll Learn:
- How to write an EFFECTIVE artist bio/statement
- How to develop and use your unique story
- Tips and tricks to speaking with ease
