Develop Your Art Business

You built a business foundation, mailing list and marketing system and you want to develop your career methodically and regulary with an advisor. 


To take one's art into the world of business is a daunting task.

"I had no idea what was required. Aletta gave me a clear plan and encouraged me each step of the way. I worked hard with little visible reward for long stretches of time.

"Two years later I am finding I am well respected among artists and professionals, and that my art is well known throughout the area. I have been told many times what a great job I have done in marketing my work.

"Though there is still much to do, my many many tools are now in place. I have a firm grasp on Social Media, marketing in general and the huge amount of work that is required to build a career as an artist. 

"I am eternally grateful to Aletta for opening the door, gently encouraging me in and then guiding me through, what was a most difficult part of this journey as a professional artist...

"I have great confidence and trust in her as a mentor, teacher and a guide, who sincerely cares. Aletta's expertise and sincere interest in each of our careers has been a huge help to me and continues to be so to this day."  

Margaret Biggs Fine Art
