You’ve found the place to get the straight truth, help and advice you need.
For my own art, once I made the decision to make art for a living, I went from one painting to a museum show within one year and now I help artists grab their goals too.
You don’t have to do this alone. It doesn’t matter if you’re just beginning to get into a rhythm of creating and sharing your work or seeking a strategy for your next step in your professional career – our mix of artists include all media and levels of experience.

Hi, I’m Roxanne and I’m so glad that you’re here!
Once I made the decision to make art for a living, I went from one painting to a museum show within one year.
I’ve helped many fine artists launch careers, publish books, create workshops, open gallery spaces, receive national magazine editorial and museum exhibitions, secure a PBS special and achieve international success.
I help artists build a successful business while sustaining their creativity and holistic lifestyle.
There’s lots more, but what matters here is YOU and how I can best gather my resources, knowledge and experience to help you connect with the tools, support, lessons and community that you need to thrive.
The seed of this site began as an artist+mom blog in 2007 and is my expanding vision of creating a learning center and supportive community for artists who are emerging, working and professional.
This is what you see developing in this space. I hope you’ll stay and be a part of it.
