Where do you want to be in 6 months?

I thought going to art school would magically turn me into a successful artist overnight. 

What I found out was that art school, while it taught me the fundamentals of technique, would contribute very little to my success as an artist.

There was very little accountability or customized mentoring at the school.  So I had to figure that out on my own. I became OBSESSED with goal setting, learning about planning, time management, and understanding the psychology behind success. 

I experimented with different techniques and productivity hacks that helped me improve faster. I discovered that if I found out what my internal and external motivators and de-motivators were I could become even more successful by leaping over those obstacles and capitalizing on what already motivated me. 

You see to become truly successful in art you can’t just learn techniques alone. You can’t just study or watch instructional videos. Watching too much instructional content can have detrimental effects on your progress.  

The truth is you need to find out what drives you. You need to be showing up to the easel WAY MORE than you are. You need one on one feedback from someone more experienced and knowledgeable than you because we can’t always see the solutions for ourselves that clearly. 

So, where do you want to be in 6 months? What’s that dream you have inside that you’re afraid to speak?  What’s that embarrassing secret that you know is keeping you from that dream? 

It’s time to get real and get honest.

It’s time to find a solution to that secret. 

It’s time to show up at your easel and stop making excuses.

It’s time to set that “ridiculous” goal and go after it with support in a safe environment. 


When you get CUSTOMIZED Mentorship it becomes so much easier to reach your goals and see the transformation you need. 

There’s no shame in getting mentorship. I’d say it’s a requirement for success. If you listen to interviews from successful people most will tell you that they mentored with someone or several people along the way. I know I have! 

For the first time, I’m opening up a very specialized mentoring program for artists.  I’ve designed it to be custom-tailored to each artist’s goals and problems you’re facing. We’ll be working together every week to keep you ON TRACK to reach where you want to be in 6 months. 

I LOVE reaching goals so much that it thrills me to help other artist’s reach theirs.

How do you know what I’m working on?

Each week we will communicate about what you’re working on or anything you’re struggling with so I can help you with that. 

How will we communicate? 

We’ll be communicating in the private Mastermind Facebook group ongoing and also through zoom video calls.

How will I know what goal to set?

I’ve specifically designed an entire goal-setting process to help you do that. I will be walking you through the process step by step. 

What if my goal is too big? 

I believe big goals are where it’s at. It’s what pushes us to grow faster. When you set a big goal you at least know that if you miss it you came much closer to it than if you set a little goal that doesn’t inspire you.
