My Art's on TV!

My Art's on TV!

Have you ever wondered how Art gets chosen for TV + film?

 

As an Artist whose work is featured in the 2nd highest grossing feature film of all time, The Avengers Endgame, I'm going to break it all down for you in this episode.

 

It's not just because I live in Los Angeles that my Art has found its way onto countless walls in both film and tv over the years (although it does help!)

 

There are a variety of ways you can get your Art seen in the entertainment industry.

 

I'm sharing the scoop from what you can expect to be paid, to the rights you want to be aware of, all to help you decide whether you actually want your Art featured in film and tv.

Do You Discount Your Art?

Do You Discount Your Art?

Are you in it for the long game or the quick sale?

 

Or? are you wanting to offer an affordable option to your loyal Collectors?

 

Maybe you're prolific and running out of room to create new work?

 

Perhaps, you're getting ready for a studio move?

 

What if you want to celebrate an important anniversary with your Collectors!

 

All reasons that you might consider having a special sale around your original work and yet do you really want to discount your original work?

 

Important questions to answer and in today's Creative Business Coaching over Coffee, I'm joined by Southern California Artist Kat to talk through all of these options when she asked whether to discount her work or not after her gallery exhibition?

 

I also opened today's episode with some thoughts and how to navigate the following your dream path during such uncertain times.

But, Can You Make 💰 With Your Passion?

But, Can You Make 💰 With Your Passion?

Stunned that we're still having this conversation and throwing cautionary tales out to people who may just be getting up the courage to pursue their passion as a business, I open this episode with a response to a conversation I heard with 2 well-respected Women leaders, just moments before I went LIVE for Creative Business Coaching over Coffee last week

 

And then one of our founding Expansive Artists members, Quilting Artist + Teacher Laura came on to get coaching help with her recent “failures”.

 

She bravely, and vulnerably shared what happened in her recent launch, and together we came up with a solution for her next steps. Spoiler alert: no failing actually happened….😝

How Do You Show Up Consistently Online, While Also Honing Your Craft?

How Do You Show Up Consistently Online, While Also Honing Your Craft?

Oh and! which platform do you choose?

 

Do you choose just 1 or more?

How do you know which one is the right one?

 

Before you set sail in the wide-open ocean of social media, and possibly waste a whole bunch of time posting aimlessly to ALL the platforms at the same time, you're going to want to answer some important questions about your business vision + goals.

 

In today's podcast episode I walk you through suggestions for you to know what will work best for your working style, along with the details of how and why I prioritize what platforms I'm currently focused on, and the best strategy for showing up consistently both digitally and in your art-making process.

 

Happening TODAY! Join me for LIVE Creative Business Coaching over Coffee ☕️ at 10 am PDT this morning over on Instagram @creativethursday.

I'll be hosting another session next Thursday, June 30 as well, same time, same place.

The Elephant in the Room

The Elephant in the Room

Radical Transparency + No Justification

I reached a point in my creative journey when I realized I had been subconsciously asking for “permission” for a lot of choices in my life. I wondered if other creatives were feeling the same, and how could I support them in breaking through the need to seek opinions + approval from others.

 

While I continued to move forward in my dreams year after year, there was so much more hesitancy + second guessing than I realized along with a strong desire to please, to not unintentionally offend, or polarize.

 

But you can't confidently stand for something and still appeal to everyone, not in your art or your message.

 

Maybe you can relate? but I would say that many of us Creatives still have a disconnect around embracing “Marketing” “Selling” and “Making Money” while still making our Art (with heart). Proudly making money and creating Art that lights you up are not mutually exclusive.

 

 

I'm going to explore this topic more in the coming weeks, and I'm kicking off the conversation in today's podcast episode where I very clearly explain a shift in my business for the first and last time ;)

 

Enjoy and let's do this!
