ARE YOU ON A PATH TO ADVANCING YOUR Art BUSINESS OR ARE YOU JUST MAINTAINING?
the art of selling art
A masterclass for artists serious about business
TASA is a down and dirty look at everything I do, not only to close the sale but to run an art business like an entrepreneur.
I am an artist, a photographer, a veteran, and a teacher. This all began when FStoppers wrote an article on me about my career in fine art. Since then I've received so many questions there weren't enough hours in the day to answer them all. First I created a FB Group. That group became this course.
Conduct business side-by-side with me.
This isn't a traditional class, so much as an ongoing breakdown of how I run my business and approach Marketing, Art Events, The Business of Art, The Administration of Business, and so much more.
A lot of my own process of discovery has been experiential. Some of it trial and error. But my success draws from other areas of my business education: I've earned a masters in business, MSOL; have attended countless seminars on marketing, money, and sales in industries including lending, real estate, and SEO; and continue to engage in extensive networking.
All of the content in this course is video-based. You'll learn firsthand how to break down proverbial walls that may be holding you back. You'll get an inside look into how I construct actual walls to showcase your art in the best possible light. You'll glean insights for handling the bumps every artist faces on the journey of selling art. And ultimately, you'll come away with more knowledge, tools, tricks and tips that will help you navigate your own successful journey.
In addition to the video materials, you’ll have access to our private Facebook group where I keep a close eye on the pulse of the community and answer questions on the fly. Group members include other successful artists and soon you will be among them. I also do weekly Q&A recap videos and drunk Q&A (my favorite). Cheers!

I sold $23,000 of art at RAF. It was one of my most successful shows and we captured every bit of what I did to be successful in The Complete Guide To Art Fairs
Here are some recent examples of my insights into the business of art.

I met Jason at 2017 Redmond Art Festival, and then again in 2018, where we had adjoining booths. He was very helpful in helping me with heavy lifting. During the Redmond setup he made couple of suggestions like keeping the booth space open, so that people don’t feel closed in, to just put my best pieces out for display, draw a diagram of the booth, so that the setup is easy.
Further he and Angelina volunteered to help me setup for Bellevue Festival of the arts, at 9:30pm. Based on his suggestions, I came prepared by drawing a booth setup diagram, I had created professionally printed catalog of my available art, bought a carpet for the booth. It was my best show in two years of doing art festivals.
