I am not a consultant who tries to create continued need for my services, nor do I build things that make you dependent on having me around to hold them steady.
Art is only successfully practiced when wed to action and not a set of detached intellectual techniques or worksheets that tell you how clever you are.
Art asks us to move into courage and you have to know how to excavate the faulty and specious premises which you've bet your identity and business success on. The secret is not to get stuck there dithering or wringing your hands before you can move forward or resolve to heal yourself.
All my solutions are tailor-made to fit the artist and the grounds they stand on.
"Once you start thinking and acting within any framework I've built for you it can evolve functionally as you evolve creatively."
Having nurtured and directed bold projects in the for-profit and non-profit fields of theatre, film, and the visual arts, I am an expert in artistic collaboration; and bring with me a corresponding proficiency in: start-up business, writing, marketing, promotions, audience development, web and graphic design, system applications, and film and video documentation.
I learned most of my skills in the trenches, making, doing, selling and producing art. My ideas and solutions come directly out of what I’ve seen fail as much as I’ve seen succeed. It is in the doing, that I believe artists learn best. There are no guarantees for success, but avoiding the middle and the predictable, remaining audacious and determined, and being flexible and creative helps.
I am not a life coach, artist representative, or private dealer. I focus exclusively on art as application, and in application.
