The Art Biz ep. 51: Imperfect Journaling for Artists with Cynthia Morris
Don't keep a journal to satisfy my utter fascination with artists' journals. Keep one for yourself. Write things down in order to remember and reflect. And keep writing because it contributes to your art marketing. In episode 51 of the Art Biz Podcast, Cynthia Morris and I talk about a framework for journaling, what types of journals we like, the value of writing by hand, and how to use prompts. LISTEN NOW >>>

The Art Biz ep. 50: Guidelines for Your Artist Statement
I want to talk about a document you can revisit (or perhaps face for the first time) that gives you power (control) over how your art is perceived: your artist statement. When you want to become part of the critical discourse—to have others consider your work for venues, grants, residencies, and articles—you can't neglect writing your artist statement.

The Art Biz ep. 48: Why Make Art Now
Before you can even begin to think about business at a time like this, you might need to come to grips with an existential question: Why make art at all? Why make it now?

Add delight to your marketing strategy (it's for you, too!)
Email is terrific. It’s fast, inexpensive, and connects to other online resources. But along with email comes a few headaches—primarily, and I don’t have to tell you this, too much of it. It might be worth trying a different tactic—to revisit a strategy for sending real mail that lands in a real mailbox. Photo here: Margaret Bremner's cards. LISTEN NOW >>> Art Biz Podcast episode 47

The Art Biz ep. 46: Structure Your Days to Be in Control of Your Art Business Now
So much of what is happening during Covid-19 is beyond your control. You can’t control how many people get sick. You can’t control how fast coronavirus spreads. You can’t control what our leaders do, but you can control how you react. It’s critical for your well being that you pay attention to what is in your control. This is going to make you feel much more optimistic about the future, and give you fuel to carry on. LISTEN NOW >> Art Biz Podcast episode 46

The Art Biz ep. 45: The Impatient Artist: How Much Time Will Your Art Career Take? (encore)
I originally started noticing this almost desperate desire for artists to make fast money at the height of the recession. Artists lost day jobs and, while they were excited to be able to focus on their art, they needed income to start rolling in much more quickly than was reasonable. The hard truth is that your art career needs time to develop. An unbearable amount of time. Cynthia Morris and I discuss this topic in episode 45 of the Art Biz Podcast >>LISTEN NOW
