Do you want to sell your art in a way that's professional, profitable + ALIGNED to your vision, health AND soul?
I created this group mentorship program just for you.
For the last 5 years, I’ve been on a journey to discover what we need-- as devoted, inspired, yet sensitive and often empathic artists -- to thrive in business.
The force, the hustle and the cookie cutter templates don’t work for us.
To be real: I’ve benefited tons from all the info out there on how to sell art + do creative business.
But I’ve been longing to see that kind of information married with the OTHER side of what allows us to thrive as ARTISTS:
Knowing our value as artists. Holding a vision.
Cultivating confidence in our purpose.
Getting clear on where we fit and how to stand out.
Choosing strategies and a direction that jives with US personally.
AND, alongside informed strategy and guidance on the bigger questions, do you know what else we need?
We need to have our strengths mirrored back to us.
We need feedback from experienced mentors and support from loving peers.
We need to NOT be building our art career in a vacuum.
I created the ART BIZ GROUP MENTORSHIP so you could have business strategy, personal exploring, passionate community AND transformative mentorship all in one place.
Working TOGETHER to help you build an art career that works for YOU.
THE ART BIZ
An Intimate Four Month Program + Online Learning Experience
In this four month program, you'll learn how to strategically sell your work online and build a sustainable business doing what you love.
You'll also receive direct, personalized mentoring based on YOU and YOUR art (because there is no "one size fits all" for artists in business)
and community feedback as you do the work and take the big steps.
But that's not all...
Knowing WHAT to do is only half the battle, because when we take the leap to show up things COME UP.
Procrastination, fear of failure, perfectionism, overwhelm, the desire to hide
...can you relate?
This is a program where we address ALL OF IT.
Where art, business and personal transformation intersect.
By the end of our time together you'll be confident and clear on your direction, and your business will be well underway with effective strategy that works for YOU, on track to grow and support you in the long term.
“I would totally recommend mentorship with Devon! She listens to your needs and desires and while giving you tips and tricks to reach your goals. She also challenges you in a positive manner! I thoroughly feel as though this was a smart and necessary investment to help get my business and art practice to the next level.”
-- Brittany Metka

I've learned to look at finances with more clarity and less overwhelm, and find solutions while there's still time. I feel a lot healthier and more peaceful in my relationship with money. I have never felt safer to dig deeply into what is true for ME and create life (and art) from this place."
