At age 60, my mom has finally decided to tell her life story. It’s one filled with much pain and much joy, like all lives tend to have, and it is utterly, uniquely her own.

It’s a story only she can tell…and whether you know it or not, you have a story within you too that only you can tell. Whether you choose to tell it through writing, painting, dance, acting, filmmaking, music, photography or another medium, all art is ultimately an expression of our own personal story – how we see the world, what experiences we’ve had, what goes on inside.

We went out and got her the prettiest journal she could find, Italian leather with a gorgeous etching on the cover and a special pen in the shape of a bullet. Putting love into the materials made her feel inspired to get started.

At first, she felt intense fear about re-feeling all of those uncomfortable feelings that can come up when one seeks to unveil the truth.

She told me my words comforted her when I said, “You don’t have to do it all in one day. You don’t have to do it when you don’t feel like it. You don’t have to rush it. Your grammar and spelling don’t have to be perfect. Things can come out of order. Take your time and just let it flow as it comes.”

The next thing she knew, she had already written 40 pages that seemed to pour out effortlessly.

I was reminded of the power of taking it easy on ourselves – that when we put too much pressure on our own creation, resistance can come up as anxiety sets in.

When we breathe, let go a bit and give ourselves permission to be more relaxed about the creative process, we tend to do our best work and flow more easily.

Here’s to taking it easy on yourself as you discover new ways to tell your own unique story.

Much Love,

how to sell art

We all know that each year as we set our “resolutions,” many fail to uphold them. I think this happens when people think achieving success is a one-time event. If you can consider change to be a life-long commitment (to health, abundance, self-actualization, etc.), you are much more likely to stick to it for the long-haul journey that it is.

That’s where rituals come in. I find them to be the most powerful way to maintain the commitments you make to yourself at the beginning of each new year.

I love a good ritual. Something about it is at once comforting and empowering.

As Tony Robbins says, “Rituals prepare you to live up to your standards.”

I think of setting weekly and daily rituals into motion like a marriage or commitment ceremony between your human self and your higher self. Hopefully, next year, you’ll find yourself simply renewing your vows to live your life according to the most glorious possible vision for it.

Here are my weekly and daily rituals that I’m re-committing to this year:

  • Daily morning and evening journal pages. If you haven’t heard me say it before or couldn’t guess, I’m a huge fan of Julia Cameron’s book, “The Artist’s Way”.  Morning pages are a practice she teaches in which she encourages artists to write three pages stream of consciousness each morning right upon waking. I find this to be incredibly rejuvenating for both my creativity and my soul. I also throw in evening journal pages as I like to reflect and process at the end of the day and plan out my activities for the following day; journaling helps me to do that.
  • A daily spiritual practice. For me, this includes meditation and reading text that encourages my own personal growth. Right now, I’m re-doing the 42-day practices in the book, “May Cause Miracles,” by Gabby Bernstein. If you haven’t checked her out, she’s awesome and the book is incredibly powerful for creating subtle internal shifts that can catalyze incredible change in your life. I love this smart and dead-on quote from Gabby about the relationship many artists have to financial abundance, “The ego reserves creativity and passion for hobbies, or it projects it onto the select few who get lucky enough to be financially successful with their passion work. I see this ego mentality come up a lot with my artist friends, who live in fear of never earning money from their art and, in effect, blocking any chance of doing so.” If you’ve ever felt that way, her book contains GREAT exercises for overcoming these internal blocks. I’m also practicing Wendy Braun’s guided meditations from ActorInspiration.com. If you are an actor, you have got to check her out! I also signed up for her Success Breakthrough Workshop starting in January, which I’m really looking forward to!
  • A daily conscious visualization practice. Every year, I do not create “resolutions,” really, but rather intentions for what I want to create in my life. I keep this list near my meditation space in my home. Every day, I take each item on the list one by one and consciously visualize and assume the feeling of already having achieved it. It’s a powerful practice for pulling me forward toward my desires and evoking inspired action vs. feeling like I’m pushing the boulders of my dreams uphill.
  • Daily tea ceremony. This is one of the things I most look forward to when I get up in the morning. I’m really excited because I received two new beautiful tea cups from Anthropologie for Christmas and a new cylinder of de-tox tea! I love to make tea the old fashioned way with a pot and strainer,  but enjoy a good tea bag as well. No matter what is going on in my life, if I can sit down with a fresh cup of tea, a pen and a notebook, I know I’ll be OK.
  • Daily physical practice. Mostly, for me, this consists of yoga & Pilates. I’ll throw in hiking, rebounding, Cardio Barre and a dose of Jillian Michaels or Tracy Anderson from time to time as well. If I’m feeling really ambitious, I’ll actually run (that doesn’t happen often ;)). But I know I’ll feel centered and balanced if I get in some sort of physical activity where I feel like I’m loving and honoring my body. I also try to always make it to weekly Sunday night candlelit yoga at my yoga studio. If you don’t have access to a yoga studio or can’t afford it or just like to workout at home, you should totally check out Yoga With Adriene if you haven’t already! She has yoga for all sorts of different moods – and she also happens to be an actress!
  • Daily work on my current artistic project. Right now I’m working on the script for my next feature film. It’s a big goal of mine to bring the film to life this year. Each day that I sit down to work on it, even if it’s only to add a slight change, has become a powerful ritual and one that I want to carry into the new year.

Here are a few NYE rituals I’ve put into practice this year to prime myself for a fresh start:

  • Clearing my physical and digital space. Cleaning out my inbox + old files on my computer as well as my apartment (getting rid of anything that I no longer need, tossing anything that’s broken and fixing things that need fixed). So refreshing!
  • NYE ceremony at my yoga studio. I’m so excited to try this! Apparently it’s going to be the Year of the Red Fire Monkey – who knew? Instead of going out tonight and as Jennifer Lawrence says, “ending up drunk and disappointed,” I’ve opted this year to as my yoga studio says, “sweat (glow!), relax and toast in 2016 with a happy heart and no hangover – or a teensy one :)”. 
  • I create a three lists: things I absolutely love about my life right now, things I’m looking forward to creating in 2016 and finally, things I want to let go of that no longer serve. Here’s the fun part – I took the list of what I’m letting go of, tore it up into a bunch of little pieces and flushed it down the toilet (shoutout to Grace Carter!). I know it sounds silly, but this was a super effective inner exercise for releasing unwanted aspects of my life. You can also burn the list if you are able to do so safely.

Would love to hear from you! Any NYE rituals or daily/weekly rituals you’d like to share? What are you excited to (re)commit to this year?

I’d also love to get feedback from you! What are you most interested in learning with regard to building your art business this new year?  I’m planning upcoming content around the following core topics, let me know if any of these resonate with you as it is my intention to create content that will serve you and your dreams…either leave a comment or shoot me an email at contact@limitlessartists.com! I always LOVE hearing from you :). 

  • Art Marketing & Business Development Training
  • Personal Development for Artists
  • Artistic Craft & Process Discussion
  • Movement for Artists
  • Tech Training for Artists

Sending you so much love as you ring in the New Year!!!

I recently saw a screening of Oprah’s “Belief” series and had the opportunity to hear the director speak live.

He said that in a meeting with Oprah she turned to him and asked him a question that really got me thinking…she looked him dead in the eye and asked, ”What do YOU believe?” (by the way, I imagine it was rather intimidating to be asked that by “The” Oprah!).

I then found myself in acting class, where all of this “stuff” about worthiness started coming up for me. On a conscious level, I do not doubt my own worthiness as I do not doubt yours.

However, on that much deeper, much sneakier level of the subconscious, there were concerns of unworthiness floating around.

I’ve started facing my subconscious mind head on (no pun intended) and the process has been extremely transformative.

Which leads me to you…get ready, I’m about to pull an “Oprah”…what do you believe?

I’m not talking about religion or spirituality here. What do you believe about your own potential and capabilities?

Some of us have never stopped to really consider this – and the thing is, it could be the main thing that’s keeping you blocked and stuck beneath your full potential.

Let’s get into this deep work, yeah? Yeah!

The first step is to become AWARE of your beliefs.

Either grab a pen and paper or type your responses into the comments section below. Write stream of conscious, whatever comes to your mind first. There’s no “wrong” way to do this exercise – no such thing as “too short” or “too long” a response.

1.) What do you believe with regard to you own worthiness as an artist?

2.) What do you believe is possible for you in your art career?

3.) What are the current “edges” in your life that you want to lean into more? These should be things that challenge or scare you but that you can immediately start to work toward/take action on today (i.e. signing up for guitar lessons, hiring a professional mentor for your given craft, putting on your first independent gallery show, etc.).

If you made it through this exercise with candor and hope, GREAT JOB!

Now, I want you to choose one of those “edges” and take the first action toward it today. Let us know what you choose in the comments section below so we can cheer you on!

If you’re having trouble with all of this or you’re feeling a little unsure of your answers, try meditating for 10 minutes and see if anything comes up.

Sending you MUCH LOVE!

how to sell art

I can’t tell you how often I see AMAZING artists with websites that simply aren’t doing them justice. When the website doesn’t do its job, the artist doesn’t earn as much as he or she is capable of.

Whether you already have an art website built, are in the planning/experimentation phase or even if you haven’t quite gotten the ball rolling yet – there is some info I want to share with you today that I think could help you out.

I want to tell you about three common pitfalls I’ve recognized in art websites and offer you some guidance on how to avoid them.

You deserve to make the sales you are capable of making in your art career.  Your website’s job is to be a 24/7 virtual gallery and your #1 art dealer. If it’s not doing its job, today is the day to give it a serious talkin’ to.

Mistake #1: No way to capture leads

Do this instead: Make sure you include a prominently displayed opt-in form on you website so that potential tribe members can sign up for your mailing list.

Mistake #2: Too much going on

Do this instead: Keep it simple! Avoid auto-play audio and distracting/overcrowded web design. Keep your nav menu options minimal and for the most part, let the work speak for itself.

Mistake #3: No differentiation

Do this instead: When prospective audience members show up on your site, that is the perfect time to showcase your uniqueness. You can convey this through a well-crafted artist statement, one prominent, distinctive image on your home page and the copy on your about page.

BONUS TIP: If you know your website needs improvements, but you’re not sure where to start, here’s a quick tip: find at least 3 websites of successful artists that have qualities you would like to emulate. You don’t want to copy them exactly, but rather garner a bit of inspiration about elements you might want to incorporate into your own site.

Now, I would love for you to TAKE ACTION!  What are three improvements you can make to your art website and/or three art websites that have qualities you admire? Leave a comment below or drop me a line at contact@limitlessartists.com!

Much love,

Maybe you’re already on it but aren’t seeing strong results. Maybe you’ve heard of it but haven’t yet taken action to build a profile. Maybe you think social media is an annoying distraction and you just want to paint (I get it!).

Here’s the thing, I want you to be successful – UBER successful – so I’m going to share with you today why you can benefit from using Instagram to promote your art business and 5 key tips for doing so successfully.

Let’s start with a quote from this super inspiring article Vogue published about artists who are making huge sales of their work on Instagram:

“[Instagram] is not only launching the career of under-the-radar artists, it is providing the world with an entirely new way to access art. Where artists once had to first get support of the art world elite—critics, galleries and big name collectors, which would eventually lead to museum shows—before reaching the monied masses, today artists use Instagram as their own virtual art gallery, playing both dealer and curator while their fans become critics and collectors, witnessing the creative process in real time.”


1. Set-Up

  • Create a profile and choose your profile photo. In your bio, include a brief description of who you are and what you do and most importantly, make sure you have a link back to your website.
  • Decide on 5-10 key “basic hashtags” you’ll include with nearly all of your posts. These are basic descriptors like “#photographer”, “#photo”, “#naturephotographer”, “#naturelovers”, etc. Figure out what is appropriate for your medium and niche.
  • Keep it public! Make sure your profile and posts stay public, not private, so that your potential audience can easily find, follow and support you. Create a separate private profile for family and friends if you must!
  • Decide if you want to showcase your work with a particular aesthetic framework. I personally love a free app called “Squareready”. You can resize images within a white backdrop, which I think gives an instagram profile a sort of white-wall gallery effect.

2. Content

  • Reveal your process (show images of you painting, writing music, rehearsing a dance, etc.)
  • Showcase finished work, your best pieces, what’s currently for sale
  • Integrate what inspires you and consider using relevant quote images
  • In addition to adding your “basic hashtags” when you post, include additional hashtags that are customized for that particular post (i.e. “#mountainlandscape”, “#landscapephotography”, “#mountainsunset”, etc.)
  • Include a plain text description of the photo and your general thoughts or feelings about its content and your creative process. If a piece is for sale, be sure to reference the link in your bio so you can give people the opportunity to purchase it. 

3. Engagement

  • Reply thoughtfully to comments
  • Be generous with compliments, “likes” and follows that you give out
  • Utilize the tool that allows you to automatically post your instagram photo to twitter and facebook. Reply to comments on those platforms as well. If a piece is for sale, once your photo posts to facebook, include a comment where you link to the exact page on your site where someone can purchase it.

4. Frequency

  • Find what’s right for you and fits in with your lifestyle goals
  • Typically 1-2 times a day is plenty
  • The most important thing is that whatever choice you make (1x/day, 1x/week, etc.) be sure to stay consistent
  • Find ways to automate or outsource (Hootsuite, Latergramm, hire a social media manager, etc.)

5. Follow Your Market

  • Make sure you’re not just “liking” and “following” random people like crazy – you want to stay within your target niche and demographic
  • Know who they are! Remember that work you did to identify your tribe? Go back to it (or if you’re brand new, do it now)
  • Search hashtags for keywords you think your target market might use when searching for work like yours

Now, I want you to TAKE ACTION! Have you been using Instagram already? How has it been going – any big wins or struggles you’d like to share? Leave a comment below or email me directly at contact@limitlessartists.com.

Let me know if you try out these tips and how it goes!

Sending you so much New-Vember love – my yoga teacher has been calling it “New-Vember” because it feels like the perfect time for new beginnings…doesn’t it?

art career

Today, I want you to feel expansive.

I want you to feel like anything and everything is possible…because it is.

It’s easy to forget that as we walk through the day to day minutiae of our lives, isn’t it?

This spark of possibility was reignited in me earlier this week and caused a dramatic energetic shift that has positively affected every area of my life.

The catalyst was a book by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen called “The Aladdin Factor”. In it, they have a great exercise for reawakening the deep desires hidden inside of us that we have decided – for whatever reason – are impossible to fulfill.

I’d love to share it with you today as it can be applied to both your art career and your life.

The first step before we can achieve anything is to be able to believe with every cell in our body that it is possible for us.

Here’s the tip: write down 101 wishes that you’d like to see fulfilled in your life and art career. As the book specifies, not 70, not 98, but exactly 101. 

I actually got stuck after #15! I kept pushing through though, all the way to 101, and I’m telling you, the result was positively expansive.

This exercise is a great way to clarify the vision you have for your art career and life, but must be followed by action in order to see tangible results.

The next step is to look at your wishes and figure out who you can ask to fulfill them (another person, yourself, God/the Universe). The next step after that is to ask yourself what fears might be getting in the way of your asking. And then, you guessed it – you have to ask for what you want.  

Here’s what I discovered: for at least 70% of my wishes, the person I could ask to fulfill them was actually myself.

Wow! What power we all have inside of us.

I’d love for you to give this exercise a go and let me know how you feel after (comments below or contact@limitlessartists.com!). I’ve felt super magnetic all week and have been inspired to take action toward my desires. I’ve experienced so much forward motion already! I wish the same for you.

I’ll leave you with a tweet-worthy quote from Jim Carrey:

So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach so we never dare to ask the universe for it…

Much Love,

how to sell art

Earlier this week, I had to do something that involved putting myself out there as an artist in a pretty big way (if you came here from my newsletter you know what I’m talking about).

It might have seemed simple and easy enough to an outsider, but my inner experience was utterly tumultuous.

After pausing in a reflective moment of stillness, I realized that the thing that was preventing me from taking the action I needed to take to move forward was none other than the frienemy of my life: FEAR (fear of rejection, fear of ridicule, fear of dying alone as a sad old cat lady, etc.). I checked in with my body and all of the areas where it was feeling tight and bunched up, “Yep, that’s it,” I thought to myself, “ridiculous, yet very present, fear is paralyzing me.”

I tell you this story because the way to become “known” as an artist is by putting yourself out there. I know that as you start to put yourself out there more and more, fear is bound to rear its ugly head up, at least once in a while.

Here’s what I’ve found to be true: the best way to overcome fear is through taking action.

I’d love to share with you a few actions you can take today in order to overcome fear and move forward on your artistic path.

1. Decide who you want to become known by & what you want to be known for.

  • Here’s a hint: it’s not everybody. The more you are able to narrow down your target demographic, the easier it will become to find your tribe and forge real connections.
  • Realize that you may not need as many fans as you think to become known by the right people and have a financially viable career as an artist. Have you heard about the theory of “1,000 True Fans”? Kevin Kelly wrote a pretty smart article about it, worth a read for sure. The idea is that an artist only needs 1,000 “true fans” in order to make a living from his work. He defines a “true fan” as “someone who will purchase anything and everything you produce.” The basic concept here is that the average “true fan” will spend roughly $100 per year on your work and that if you can build up just 1,000 of them, you could make a yearly income of $100,000. Food for thought.
  • Make an internal pact with yourself about what it is that you want to be known for. This may not be an issue for you, but remember that as tempting as it is to try to quickly become a famous artist, a successful career is a marathon, not a sprint. When you decide you want to be known for integrity and excellence in your work vs seeking notoriety itself, you put yourself in the category of Meryl Streep instead of certain other public figures who are famous for being famous (we can all use our imaginations). Focus on honing your craft and connecting with the right people for the right reasons. Build slowly on a strong foundation and you’re sure to win. 

2. Find at least one way to put yourself out there in front of these people today.

  • One of – if not the most – powerful way to reach them is by writing articles, being featured or getting interviewed on other platforms that cater to your target demographic. 

  • There are many other ways to reach out to these groups as well, such as social media, forums, and commenting on those blogs that are being frequented by your potential tribe members.

  • To go in deeper with this material, stay on the lookout for the release of my premium content, where I walk through this intricate process step-by-step.

3. Develop a systematic plan of action that will enable you to consistently put yourself out there in front of your target audience.

  • Decide on an outreach plan and stick to it! You don’t have to do everything all at once. Just choose the thing that works best for you right now and stay with it. 

  • Be sure that as you’re reaching out to these people, you’re also redirecting them back to your site and capturing their names and emails so you can keep in touch.

  • The key here is consistency. Connecting to your target audience is not a one time event, but an on-going process.

And now, for my tweet-worthy quote of the week…

 

Now, I’d love for you to TAKE ACTION. Answer the following questions in the comments section or on your own and act on them today:

1.) Who do you want to be known by and what do you want to be known for?

2.) What is one outlet that caters to your target demographic that you can connect on? 

3.) What is the one action that you will do consistently to connect with your target audience? 

Let me know how it goes and feel free to leave other thoughts on this post in the comments section below or send directly to my email: contact@limitlessartists.com.

Much Love,

how to sell art

Ever feel overwhelmed by the technical and administrative side of your art business?

Between website management, coordinating supplies and contracts; creating, marketing and selling your artwork, it’s easy for tasks to pile up to the point where your brain hurts. Sometimes it’s hard to even know what to focus on first.

We’ve all been there.

For artists, especially, dealing with technology can be a love-hate affair. Creatives often struggle with the more administrative, business-oriented tasks as well.

That’s why I want to help make your life just a little bit easier with a few tips and resources that I have personally used to stay organized in my production company. I’ve also helped my mom incorporate these tools into her photography business.

We’d love to share with you what’s been working for us!

I also discuss these tips on the first episode of the Limitless Artists Podcast:

1. Create Two “Workflow Queues”

  • First, grab a piece of scratch paper.
  • On one side, list out all of the administrative tasks you currently have on deck. On the other side, list out all of the art pieces you’ve felt the inspiration to create.
  • Print out the handy PDF Guide I’ve included with this post.
  • Prioritize your tasks in order of importance/interest. List the administrative tasks on the left side of the PDF and your creative projects on the right.
  • Decide to only focus on the one item at the top of each queue at a time.

Free Resource: The Artist’s Business To-Do Queue Template
(click on link, once open, control-click anywhere on page and hit “Save As”, then “Save”)

2. Schedule Items on Your Queue

  • Decide what part of your day/week you’ll devote to executing the admin work and what time will be devoted to the creative. For example, I typically dedicate my mornings to taking care of myself (working out, meditating, writing morning pages – shout out Julia Cameron!) followed by executing administrative tasks. Late afternoons and evenings I dedicate to the creative. Find what works for you! Might take some trial and error.
  • I also recommend taking that handy list you created and delegating tasks to specific days of your week. For example, maybe you have more free time Friday afternoon to devote to your creative work. Perhaps Thursday mornings it’s not too tough to fit in an extra hour of admin art business work before your side job.
  • The next step is to schedule the actual tasks on your calendar. My recommended tool is Google calendar: super easy and keeps things nice and organized! If you haven’t used it before, check out the free tutorial I created below to help you get started.

Free Resource: Tech Training for Artists: How to Use Google Calendar

3. Ask for help

  • Consider outsourcing admin tasks if you can afford to.
  • Look for free tutorials online (like the one above!) to complete technical tasks you’re unfamiliar with.
  • Ask me. Really! I’m listening. I want to create more free “Tech Training” videos like the one above, but I want to make sure there’s a demand for it. What are you currently struggling with in your art business that you could use a free tutorial on? Let me know in the comments section or shoot an email to contact@limitlessartists.com. I love hearing from you!

By the way, if you’re at the crazy point (you know what I’m talking about, head on the table, screaming to yourself, “WHY IS THIS STUFF SO HARD?!”), don’t be afraid to take a break. Go for a walk, meditate for half an hour, take a nap. It’ll all be OK.

If you’re feelin’ fresh, I’d love for you to take action now! Grab the free template and start planning out your to-dos.

It would also be great for your voice to join the conversation: what helps you stay organized and productive in your art business?

Don’t forget to share this info with other artists who need it (get your karma on!).

Much Love,

Do you currently use business cards to promote your photography (/fine art) business?

Whether or not you do right now, I want to share with you a cool, quick trick that will enable you to easily showcase the hi-lights of your portfolio to everyone you meet.

I tried this with my mom as we were launching her photography business and she absolutely loved it!

Here’s the trick: we created eight different sets of business card backs. We pulled her favorite images that each showcase a particular category of her work.

We went through a company called “Moo”. They’re pretty great – excellent customer service, really affordable, timely and make this option of creating multiple backs super easy (I’m not currently an affiliate for them, just a really satisfied customer).

Let me know if you try this trick and how it works out!

Leave me a comment or shoot me an email at contact@limitlessartists.com. I love hearing from you.

Make sure you tell your artist friends about this tip if you think it might help them.

how to sell art

I just put the finishing touches on my newest short film a few days ago and am beginning the process of writing my next feature screenplay.

I always start the process by going back through old notes and reminding myself of what steps I need to take to bring a new project to fruition.

I thought I’d share my step-by-step screenwriting to-do list with you today!

Here’s my list:

1. Brainstorm: This is where I allow the free flow of ideas to spring forth.

2. Character: I like to start the story-writing process by developing my characters first.

3. Synopsis: Once I’ve gone into some depth with character descriptions, I then create a three paragraph synopsis (one paragraph for each act of the screenplay).

4. Outline: I then break down my synopsis of broad plot points into a scene-by-scene outline. Sometimes I’ll also do a “Beat Sheet” first, which is a list of the major emotional moments that the story hits on (slightly more detailed than the synopsis).

5. Pages: Once I have an outline ready, I start writing pages. For the first draft, I don’t edit as I go, but rather just try to get to the end without too much self-critique or judgement. I usually aim for 90-120 pages, but don’t force the story to fit within these limitations if I feel it needs to be shorter or longer.

I’d love to hear from you – what creative projects are you working on and what’s your process?

Much Love,
