🌳 My story
I started drawing as a young child, you couldn’t stop me! But I didn’t think about selling my art until the summer of 2017. I had been working at NASA as an aerospace engineer and was about to start a PHD so decided to sell some drawings as a way of funding my studies.
I started with $0 in sales, 0 contacts, and 0 social media followers.
Within 8 weeks I had a 3-month waiting list of clients who had commissioned my artwork, and my Facebook and Instagram accounts had exploded with growth. Every day I had more inquiries than I could dream of, and I was making more income as an artist than I had as an engineer. It challenged every perception I had about whether art was actually viable as a career, and my eyes were opened.
6 years on and I have a long list of regular clients and the income I generate from my art has allowed me to live all over the world and spend more time with my family than I ever thought possible.
🤫 The secret to art businesses that work
Over the last 6 years I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to build a loyal online following and monetize your art in a way that keeps clients coming back for more. I’ve spent hundreds of hours reading the right books, taking courses and speaking to experts in the art industry to try and discover what really works. Do you know what I’ve found? Every time it comes back to three simple rules:
- Create high-quality artwork that resonates with your audience.
- Organise your business to make the most of your time.
- Engage with your audience every day.
That’s all you need to do. I promise that if you follow these three little rules your art business will become unrecognisable. You will learn new skills, meet incredible people and take your art to places you haven’t yet imagined. More than that, you will begin making more money from your art than ever before.
Now, as you’ll appreciate, getting started and keeping consistent can be easier said than done.
🎯 Prepare to be challenged
Building momentum can take time. You may not see huge changes in the early stages. As well as self doubt (we all struggle with this!) you may hear reservations from friends or family. You are going to have to work out who you are as an artist and why that should matter to people.
You will need to learn how websites and social media platforms work behind the scenes. You’ll have times when you feel out of your depth talking to clients or question whether what you’ve created is good enough to show the world. You’ll end up taking artistic risks that may or may not pay off.
All this (and a lot more) while balancing your relationship, your family, your job, and your health and still finding enjoyment in your art.
It is hard. You will have to work hard. But, it’s also incredibly rewarding and fun, and if you get it right it will genuinely change your life for the better.
If there was one piece of advice I’d give, it is to build a SYSTEM that supports you on your journey, so that you can efficiently grow your art business without adding ever-increasing pressure on your time. Building your art business this way allows you to be more creative, more flexible, and more effective with your time and the business starts to have momentum all of its own.
I’ve developed my SYSTEM as I’ve grown my business, and I can help you it them too.
🚀 The Art business launch kit
The Art Business Launch Kit is a collection of books, tools, and resources (in a handy PDF format). I’ll teach you everything I know about how to build your art business into a profitable, sustainable system that (1) delights art clients (2) thrives on social media and (3) generates a healthy income for you.
