BECOME THE ARTIST YOU WERE BORN TO BE



Are You Ready To...


Step up and claim your calling?  

Proudly say that you’re an artist when someone asks?

Speak your truth and let it shine through your art? 

Be a beacon of possibility for others? 

Wake up every day and step into a studio you love knowing exactly what you’re here to do?  


You're here to make art. 

Some part of you knows this, but it keeps getting lost along the way. Or buried under a pile of other people’s needs. 

You're smart, kind and talented. You know how powerful creativity is and you would love nothing more than to spend your days immersed in it.   

You would do anything to be the artist you were born to be and have all the time in the world to create.

The problem is that somewhere between daily life, your Inner Critic, and disbelief, things got lost.


Some part of you stopped believing. 


You convinced yourself that it’s too hard and have been gathering evidence ever since.

You care so much about other people that you buried your own needs and desires.  

You’ve probably tried a whole bunch of things to fix this – art school, art classes, free online courses, a sh!t load of personal development courses…  

You’ve prayed, cried, set your intentions, tried telling yourself to forget about it and that it doesn’t really matter.

So seriously… WTF? Why is it so hard?  

The truth is this...


Trust me! I used to be the quintessential starving, suffering artist.  

I used to feel guilty about making art. The Inner Critic told me it was a frivolous luxury. I struggled heartily. The fear was torturous. My Inner Critic was debilitating. I quit for years at a time.  

It wasn't until I finally figured out that my fear (and my Inner Critic) held the key to my creative freedom that my artistic life blossomed.  

The solution to your art-making problem has nothing to do with how disciplined you are or which art school you went to...  

 

What if I told you that your Inner Critic (the one that you’ve tried to banish), actually held the key to your creative freedom? 

What if you knew that there was a way to stop sabotaging yourself (forever) and speak your truth through your art?  

What if I told you that consistently making art wasn’t rocket science?

 
 

It's time for you to feel clear, 
inspired and relieved... 


Keep Your Ass in the Studio is a special e-course for artists who struggle to believe in themselves.

This course has been supporting artists just like you who used to struggle heartily - artists who are now making their art, showing up for themselves, selling art, exhibiting internationally, doing residencies, curating shows and teaching their own classes in community...

You Might Be Wondering...  

WHEN DOES IT START?

Monday, September 18, 2017

HOW LARGE IS THE GROUP OF ARTISTS?

There is no limit to enrollment. The more artists contributing their vital, no holds barred energy, the merrier.

WHAT WILL THE FORMAT BE?

This support group operates online and through a Facebook group. Action steps and course content are delivered via email and available through an online platform called Ruzuku. We don’t meet in the flesh, though of course you are welcome and encouraged to organize that with members of the group who are in your neck of the woods.

WHO CAN JOIN? WHAT TYPE OF ARTIST IS THIS FOR?

Because I’m a visual artist myself, this group works best for visual artists – painters, illustrators, photographers, mixed media artists, animators, textile artists, designers, sculptors, installation artists, craftspeople and those working in social practice, but of course it’s not limited to that. It just means that I’ll best be able to support you with feedback on the work itself should you desire it.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO PARTICIPATE?

The only requirement is that you register and pay and follow the instructions you receive. In the meantime, go ahead and add me as a friend on Facebook if we’re not already and you could re-arrange or ahem, start dusting your studio space.

WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE MY OWN STUDIO SPACE?

Doesn’t matter. Kitchens, corners of living rooms, boyfriend’s parents’ basements (yes, I’ve had one of those), coffee shops, sketchbooks, as long as you have the desire to consistently create you’re all set! Having an actual studio is great, but it’s not a requirement.

I HAVEN’T MADE ART IN SUCH A LONG TIME, WILL THIS HELP ME TO EASE BACK INTO IT?

Absolutely. I have transmissions and things to say about that along the way. You can go as slowly as you like. The idea is to help you determine and craft the most healthy, loving, supportive pace and processes that works for you.

I USED TO DREAD CRITIQUES IN COLLEGE. WILL THIS BE LIKE THOSE?

Oh no no no. ABSOLUTELY NOT. There will be the opportunity for feedback, but I make it very clear how we do that and that we do it in a safe, supportive and healthy way. Plus, I only attract the most kindhearted and supportive souls. 

WHAT IF I’VE NEVER STUDIED ART FORMALLY?

You’re fine. That is not a prerequisite to being an artist or to being in this group. Just know that I won’t be teaching specific art making techniques. We’ll focus more on process than product.

WHAT IF I’M NOT SATISFIED OR IT’S JUST NOT QUITE RIGHT FOR ME?

Once you’re in, you’re in. I’m confident that any artist who integrates this content and engages fully will experience profound shifts in their creative output and disposition towards being an artist. If you have completed all the course content, (as evidenced on the course content page), have engaged in the Facebook group and are still not happy at the end of the 12 weeks, you and I will schedule a conversation to discuss a refund. Check out the Terms & Conditions if you have more questions
