Being an artist can sometimes be an isolated existence! Its very easy to get bogged down in your own little world and lose sight of what it is you want to achieve.

So, I recently packed myself off to London to take part in the 2016 Art Business Success Summit led by Kathryn Roberts of YourArtImage at the Green Park Hilton in Mayfair.

What a fantastically energising and renewing experience! The inspirational guest speakers* explained their remarkable journey’s and were full of tips about the many ‘business’ aspects of being an artist (something every artist hates but all have to do!). We even had professional headshots done by brilliant Event Photographer Val Westover, who flew in from the U.S. especially!

The amount of knowledge, ideas, encouragement and support gained just by meeting not only the speakers but also all the other artists was incredible! I suspect the connections we made will reap dividends for years to come.

Im so grateful to have got out of my ‘comfort zone, (put on some CLEAN clothes for a change!) and invested in my own future!  I’ve booked myself onto some other courses this year so I expect some changes to come, both in my practise, my business and in myself. ….So, watch this space! x  

………I even managed to squeeze in an exhibition or two!

*Guest speakers: Artists: Kelvin Okafor, Lisa Cirenza, & Anthony J Parke  And:Jonas Almgren, CEO of the Global online Art marketplace Artfinder.
