This podcast is sponsored by my Finding Clients to Buy Your Artwork Mini-Course.

Ever felt the frustration of not knowing why people aren't buying your artwork?

We've all been there, and there's nothing more frustrating than to put your heart and soul into creating meaningful works of art only to have no one purchase it or even notice what you're doing.

That was my story for many years as a hobbyist artist until the Holy Spirit started showing me how to develop authentic connection with my potential clients through telling my story
and building relationships.

The exciting part is that the same strategies I've been using for years to build and sustain a very successful art business for myself are now working for artists all over the world in just about every creative medium.

And that's what this mini-course is all about! It's full of practical advice and measurable steps that you can take now to start finding the ideal clients for your artwork
