Artist Mentoring

I offer one-on-one creative mentoring sessions for visual artists of all mediums specialising in early to emerging artist. 

 

This is for you, when you need full focus from someone who is walking the path, too.  Do you feel stuck, scared, or intimidated to show up for your creative calling?  Do you need a pep talk, to get to work? Do you need a truth bomb to blow through your creative blocks? Perhaps you're like me, and it's a combination of all three.  That's totally normal! 

 

Being an artist and making your life's work is one hell of an adventure, and it really helps to have an enthusiastic guide.  I absolutely love working one-on-one with people to achieve your creative dreams. In our sessions together, I will listen to exactly what is going on with you, and pinpoint strategies to overcome any blocks or obstacles that we can find. I will share resources and experiences that I have learned from, to help you along your path. My goal in our work together is to encourage you to work with velocity and in alignment with dreams and values.

I have invested in mentoring and coaching throughout my career as a business owner and artist and I have always been deeply grateful for the clarity that it brings. It is an investment in your success.  Mentoring sessions can be done in my studio in Maldon, Victoria, or remotely via video conference. Our calls will be recorded for your reference.
