CREATIVITY COACHING

As a coach to artists and creatives, including poets, writers, and visual artists, I help you reach your creative and business goals.

 
That's me!

That's me!

A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY APPROACH TO COACHING

I am a Seattle-based, professional artist with over 20 years experience in communications, including facilitation, coaching, storytelling, marketing, performance management, public speaking, social media, and design. I am a Certified Innovation Facilitator by The Creative Problem Solving Group; a certified Development Dimension International (DDI) customer service trainer; and completed Training Resources Groups’ facilitator training. I specialize in creativity, accountability, and business coaching for artists.

Whether you are just starting out, several years into making art, or are a seasoned artist, I can help. I specialize in:

  • helping people get started (or restarted) with making art;

  • supporting visual artists who know or are learning their tools develop a regular practice; and

  • accountability coaching and business coaching for seasoned artists.

 


WHAT DOES A CREATIVITY COACH DO?

I bring together my world-class training in facilitation, coaching, and performance management together with my knowledge and experience of 20 years as an artist and work with you to create and achieve a concrete, actionable plan to grow your practice. I have a range of tools I draw from in my coaching practice including Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way, Brian Moran’s the 12-Week Year, and more.

What does a Creativity Coach not do?

My expertise is in helping you grow your practice and meet your goals for your art-making. I am not teaching how to paint, per se, although we may touch on techniques and materials. I am not a therapist, either. We may touch on sensitive issues as part of this process. My focus is on your business and creative success, focusing on the present and helping you design and create the future you’ve dreamt of.

I've been there...planning for shows, updating social media, writing, painting...and I can help you get where you want to be in your creative business.

HOW DOES COACHING FOR ARTISTS WORK?

Through weekly check-ins (through a combination of email, phone, Zoom, or Facetime), we will outline your goals, identifying obstacles to meeting those goals, and create an action plan with achievable steps you can take. For our check ins, I’ll send you questions to get a sense of your progress and see what obstacles you are facing.

I’ve read books and taken webinars and courses on planning. How is working with a coach different?

Making art is personal and that’s why my coaching is personal. Each client has different needs and challenges they are trying to overcome. Unlike books, webinars and online courses, my work is customized specifically to you and your needs. I will also send you some readings, other materials, and fun surprises custom selected for you.

So, the question is…are you ready to elevate your practice and start meeting your goals?

I offer different options to work with your budget.

All include a complimentary 30-minute introductory call. We will talk about your goals, where you are in your practice, and look at whether and how I can help you reach your goals.

Silver Level: 3 months for $198/month (or 1 payment of $498)

  • 30 minute intro call (complimentary)

  • 30 minute call once a month

  • Weekly check in emails

  • Presents! Readings, materials, and fun surprises custom selected just for you.

I’ve been asked by past clients to make a bi-weekly phone call option available. If you really want to accelerate your work, this may be the best fit for you!

Gold Level: 3 months for $298/month (or 1 payment of $798)

  • 30 minute intro call (complimentary)

  • 30 minute call twice a month to accelerate your work

  • Weekly check in emails

  • Presents! Readings, materials, and fun surprises custom selected for you.

Want even more support? You've got it! This option includes a weekly check in as well as anytime needed email support.

  • 30 minute intro call (complimentary)

  • 30 minute call every week to accelerate your work

  • Weekly check in emails

  • Presents! Readings, materials, and fun surprises custom selected for you.

So my thought is that if you've read this far, you want to know more. You'd at least like to talk about the coaching programs and have a chance to ask questions. If that's the case, my first piece of coaching to you is -- go for it! There's no obligation and our first 30 minute call is complimentary. You will leave with a better understanding of what I can do for you as a coach and clarity about what our work together can accomplish.
