You have a sparkly writing voice hiding inside your brain.
And I’m the gal that can help guide you to exactly where that voice is hanging out; eating Doritos on some couch up there — not paying any rent.
Retrieving your authentic voice and putting it to work for you will cut out the confusion, nausea, and procrastination you may now wrestle with when you try to sit down to write.
Work with me if you want support to:
Write in a down-to-earth way that expresses your unique mission.
Help your readers get in touch with their own unique gifts.
Enjoy the creative aspects of writing!
Increase your sales and readership — just by being your adorable self on the page.
Put out content you’re proud of on a regular basis so you give yourself a chance to succeed.
Laugh along the way (I’m not the buttoned-up, corporate type. I’m an artist too.)
But all that swell stuff can’t start happening unless you say; ‘Damn it, I’m worth it,’ and sign up now for the package below that’s right for you.
Why pick me to be your writing coach?
I’m an award-winning, humor-loving, professional freelance writer and blogger who specializes in the business of art.
I’m also a literacy volunteer for kids, a mythologist, artist and regular contributor to nationally syndicated magazines like Professional Artist, L.A. Parent, Catster and top-drawer art blogs like Artsyshark.com, Skinnyartist.com, and F.A.S.O.’s Boldbrush Blog.
If you want to expand your business by letting your 💙 heart-based words and stories connect you to your ideal reader or client, work with me.
I’ve never had an unhappy customer but if you aren’t satisfied with the coaching for any reason I’ll refund the fee.

2. Blog Launch Package for Artists
Finally, write and publish your first blog post even if you’re terrified and don’t think you have anything to offer readers.
Blogging can lead to big breakthroughs in your business and your personal life.
But does the thought of writing and publishing your first blog post make you want to just stay in bed? I’ve been there and I can help.
This one hour personalized coaching call includes:
A 15-minute review of your current website or gallery page if you already have one. This review will help you clarify the purpose of your blog posts.
A 15-minute deep dive to help you envision and flesh out your reader avatar (imagined mock-up of your ideal reader.) This will help you identify the exact type of client/reader you are writing for, what they most want and need to be informed about, and how you see them benefiting and changing by reading your blog.
15-minute brainstorming session to come up with 3 personalized post topics for you to confidently begin your blogging journey with. Once you have these it will be easier to start and build your momentum.
Time for questions and answers.

Or Let’s Create a Writing Coaching for Artists Custom Package For You

Writing Coaching For Artists: *Keeping it Real Section
There’s no magic pill that turns anyone into a good writer overnight.
Writing is re-writing. Period.
My goal is to give creatives like you the feedback you need to strengthen your unique writing voice and build your own permanent, reliable, internal writing guidance system.
And we do that each time we connect.
But to truly make your art writing shine you have to do be willing to do two things on your own:
1. Spend a lot of time tinkering with what you’ve already written.
2. Take a chance on being vulnerable on the page.
If you can love yourself enough to commit to learning how to go about doing those two things; I believe lush, new, vibrant worlds will open up for you.
You’ll no longer dread writing.
In fact, in the future, it may be tough for you to pick which great, meaningful idea you get to write about next.
