I am passionate about  helping artists reach their highest creative, career and financial potential through personalized career consultations and coaching plus writing and promotional services.

For more than 30 years I have helped thousands of artists from around the world at all career levels, working in different styles and mediums.

I know how to evaluate your strengths and unique attributes. I have a thorough knowledge of the art business.  I have curated more than 60 exhibitions and studied art at the Art Students League and other NYC art schools. I am a member of the International Association of Art Critics. Read my complete bio to learn more about me.

I also specialize in writing artist’s biographies and essays for artists  to use for promotional purposes.
