Your art deserves to be gracing someone's walls, not getting dinged-up or moldy, sitting in a closet or stuffed under your bed! That's just WRONG!
When you sell your art......
..... you can:
- use the money to pay for art supplies!
- get rid of inventory. #MakeRoom4MoreArt
- have a second income.
- have an after-retirement or part time career.
- Your family and friends will take your commitment to your art seriously.
When you start to sell your work, people start to take you and your art seriously. It's a whole other level of respect.
Don't let the fact that you're a part time or not a career artist stand between the rewards, financial and emotional, that come from selling your art.
A few simple repeated actions will give your art exposure to potential buyers and attract customers. When you enroll in this course you'll get immediate access to the exact same system and steps I've developed in my 20+ years as a professional artist.

Does this sound like you?
You love the creative process! One idea leads to another, you keep working and pretty soon you have an amazing collection of artwork that you're really proud of.
And to make it even better, your friends, family, and art instructors are telling you they love it too!
That feels really good, so you keep working, keep producing and getting better and better. And now you have more art than you can keep for yourself.
No really? Now what? What are you going to do with it?
Well, if you're anything like me you start giving it away.
Birthdays, holidays, housewarming parties, I gave them pottery. Until it got to the point where I just couldn't, absolutely couldn't, give them ANOTHER BOWL. (mug, plate, etc.)
But I didn't want to stop making pottery. So now what?
SELL IT! (if I could put a light bulb image here I would)
Q. Why didn't I think of it sooner?
A. The truth is, I did think of it sooner, but I put off taking action. I wasn't sure how to start. Who would buy? How would I do it?
Fortunately, I got encouragement from family and friends. I said. "I can do this" and got started. And I haven't stopped.
Not going to lie, there have been ups and downs. I've gone from selling a few pieces of pottery here and there to selling paintings and teaching classes and successful workshops. It didn't happen over night, but it wouldn't have happened at all if I'd never started. Duh!
I have one customer who's bought over 35 pieces from me. And many who've bought more than a dozen.
The majority of my customers own 3 to 5 pieces of my work and add to their collection every year. #notbraggingifitstrue
Maggie was prepared with extensive resources for a jam packed day of learning. She responded to all questions with tailored information which she added via emails to each of us. I was very pleased that the content covered more than I expected.— L. Devore
I'm not sure I'm ready to sell my art.
Sigh.........I know that feeling. Every artist goes through that at first. This course isn't about judging, it's about getting your friends, family and others, excited about you being an artist and taking them on the artistic journey with you. When you establish that kind of a connection with people, they want to support you. And they do it by purchasing from you.
Use the steps in the course to let people know about your artwork and see what happens. You'll be amazed by the positive response you receive. Your friends, family and others really do want to support you and see you succeed.
The experience was wonderful. Maggie is so knowledgeable, informative, insightful, and passionate. This translated to an amazing learning and sharing experience that was over too soon!— R. Feinberg

I want to sell reproductions of my work.
Great! Good for you! Use the action steps in this course to let people know you have reproductions for sale. It doesn't matter if you're selling original work or reproductions, you still need a plan. These plans do not contain instructions for making artwork or reproductions. Jump Start Your Art Sales: Deluxe does have some information specifically about reproductions. Such as sites you can use to produce and sell.
What if I'm unhappy with my purchase?
Well, I would be sad, I don't want any of my students to be unhappy. But if you're really unhappy with the course, email me within 5 days and tell me exactly why you don't like the course. I'll value your feedback, give you a full refund and we'll still be friends.
I still have a question, how can I contact you?
I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have. Send me an email at email@example.com.
