This podcast is for artists who want to create their most authentic work that's uniquely theirs, and to sell it to people who love and value it just as much as they do. We'll talk about finding the sweet spot between creating what you love and selling it at your dream prices. We'll explore how authenticity isn't just satisfying for you as an artist but also makes your work more sought after.

On this podcast, we'll also dive into a thriving artist mindset required for creating a seamless flow in the studio and finally overcoming creative blocks – and what it takes to actually succeed as an artist that goes beyond the surface level – working from the inside out.

I'll share my story and the story of other artists. My journey has been less than perfect to get here, but after years of art school, design work, product creation, trend, and colour forecasting spanning over 25+ years, I've got some stories to tell. I've worked on creating thousands of sellable products selling to hundreds of retailers all over the world – including my own art.

My biggest lesson Iearned is that excelling in ART requires boldness and self-trust. To tap into our authentic essence and use it as your superpower. Selling Your Soul? Not Required! - Authenticity and passion trump everything in the world of art.

I've worked with hundreds of artists through the years who have now learned how to pull out what’s already inside of them to make work that is extremely satisfying, understanding their unique value in the art world – and making sellable art that feels like them. My mission is to help way more!

My favourite part is recognizing artists' true value and helping them bring that unique perspective into the art market. Artists often tell me they feel 'seen' when working with me. That's truly the best part. The world is waiting for all of us to show up as ourselves, and been seen as we truly are and make the world a more interesting place.

If you’re ready to unleash your unique voice, and let the art that is already inside of you come out to create highly desirable collections, then tap the + follow button and let’s begin.

    #15 / Will Your New Art Sell? Tips to Navigate Uncertainty

    In this episode, I talk about the daunting, and repeating question – “Is my new art going to sell?”, Or “Is my art good enough to sell?”. Over my 20+ years of experience, the answers to this question lies in pricing strategies, silencing the inner critic, and how to create real demand (so we can avoid feast or famine). I share insights on how important market research can be to success and the pitfalls of the “Dunning–Kruger effect.

    Teaching you to sell art is one thing; guiding you to sell your true self is another. That’s rare and that's the journey I've been on — away from the noise and celebrating uniqueness. It's not the easiest path, but it's incredibly rewarding, leading away from becoming a production house of sameness, and chasing your tail with trends.
    With over 25 years of navigating this path, I've learned some invaluable lessons about the importance of staying true to our creative essence. I'm here to pass those lessons on to you, helping you find and express your own unique voice in a way that connects deeply with those who will love it most.

    #14 / Uncertain Times in Art: Navigating Ethical Standards

    #14 / Uncertain Times in Art: Navigating Ethical Standards

    This episode got pretty real. A personal life update and speaking TRUTH bombs again. After seeing a lot of stuff going on in the art world lately and – feeling like the art world has been lacking transparency and integrity. Today it made me question everything - is a doozy episode!
    I openly share what I hope to see more of and what I want to avoid in my art journey. I would like to say a big (THANK YOU) to the galleries and representation that are doing it right! We need more of you as well.

    #11 / A Cultural Shift In Art Trends (you don't want to miss)

It’s more important than ever to leverage your unique voice with this cultural shift in art trends. The world is changing and you don’t want to miss this.

    #10 / How to Trust Yourself to Find Your Unique Voice

    #10 / How to Trust Yourself to Find Your Unique Voice

    The Power of Trusting Yourself as an Artist
    In this episode I dive into why trusting yourself is key to developing your own artistic style and voice. Drawing from my own ups and downs, I talk about how crucial it is to do this —not just for creating art that stands out, but also for finding true personal satisfaction as an artist. If we don't do this - we risk ever find out authentic voice, and making the art that only we can make!
    Here’s what we’ll cover:
    Recognizing signs that you're not trusting yourself: I share how things like unfinished projects, being overly critical, and hesitating to share or sell your work can be big red flags.Tackling Imposter Syndrome and Perfectionism: Hear about the straightforward steps I took to fight off these common challenges that artists face.Building Trust in Your Art: Learn about the simple, everyday actions that have helped me stay confident in my creativity.
    Whether you're just starting out or you're looking to deepen your art practice, this episode is packed with real talk on how to trust yourself more.
    Teaching you to sell art is one thing; guiding you to sell your true self is another. That’s rare and that's the journey I've been on — away from the noise and celebrating uniqueness. It's not the easiest path, but it's incredibly rewarding, leading away from becoming a production house of sameness, and chasing your tail with trends.
