As a professional artist, a past president of the board of directors for an arts non-profit, and author of the book, How To Build Your Art Business: With Limited Time Or Energy, I also do a limited amount of business consulting (for artists, galleries, and other organizations). I frequently answer questions from other artists, and I’m more than willing to give you free advice, but if you want to get into specifics when it comes to your own business, it’s best to hire me as a consultant and sit down with me in person to talk.
My current consulting fee is $35/hour. I live in Barre, VT and am willing to travel up to 30 minutes away to meet. I usually meet in a public location, such as a cafe, or if you’re within that range (or pay me to drive further), I’m more than willing to come to your studio.
I’m also willing to do phone consultations for $28/hour for those who live too far away.
What I Consult About
I consult on a number of topics. Below are the most popular ones:
- Copywriting/Marketing Materials
- Email Marketing
- Social Media
- Artist Bio/Statements
- Public Speaking
- Professional Presentation (ie. craft/art festival display, business cards, gallery proposals, framing, labels, website photos, artist resumes, etc.)
