Or maybe you’ve paid to be featured in a gallery or had your art hung up at a local cafe… and felt discouraged when you didn’t make the sales you hoped for.
You might have finished a piece, set a price and then immediately reduced the price because you don’t think anyone would pay that much.
Oh, but they will.
I’ve been a professional artist for over 18 years, but before that, I was just a hobby artist. I painted because I wanted to create something honest, true and real.
Little did I know, my art would help me build a multiple six-figure business that sells paintings for thousands of dollars.

But this program gives you all the relevant parts in a fraction of the time for a fraction of the cost.
Dismantling Our Limiting Beliefs (of being a successful artist).
These beliefs are at the root of why we hold ourselves back. It's time we shed these in order to have the freedom and abundance we deserve.
We all have MONEY STORIES that we’ve likely inherited from our youth. When we couple those with what society tells us about being a “starving artist” it can be a lot to unpack. We will do this together and in a safe, comfortable community.
Our WHY is at the heart of our art and how we actually connect to our collector. We’ll discover your WHY together so that you can make your biggest impact with your art.
Once we understand our WHY, we are ready to lay the foundation for our BRAND. Don’t let that word scare you, it simply means you’ll begin to understand why your collectors love your art. Don’t think you’re special?
Think Social Media or Galleries are the only way to sell your art? Nope! You’ll learn 16 different ways to sell your art and how to price your art to sell.
When we look at any other industry, we see that each of them has various Income streams. Even Starbucks sells more than coffee!
But how do you know what’s best for you and your art?
Have you ever considered Licensing? Prints? Working with designers? You’ll learn how to make it all happen.

"Can you imagine going from chaos to having a very clear path? Imagine how that would feel." - Scott McDuffee, scottmcduffeeart.com
It may come as a surprise to some of you but I started painting at the age of 35. Prior to that I was an entrepreneur and had successful businesses in five different industries. I’ve worked everything from running a high-end restaurant and interior design company, to launching my own clothing line and a wine bar. All highly successful.
My extensive experience as an entrepreneur has allowed me to look at my art biz from a completely different perspective and apply the learnings to really set myself apart.
I’m NOT going to show you how to build my business (cause you’re the boss of YOU and you gotta add your own magic to the process!). What I’ll give you though are the tools, tips and guidance I picked up over the years to help you run YOUR art biz as a successful entrepreneur and a CEO!
To help you get the most out of your learning experience, Art Biz for Rebels includes:
Watch, pause, re-watch. Over and over again. Each module contains one or more video lessons to help you follow along.
Get downloads, worksheets and templates to help you implement the learnings in each module.
Connect with other Rebels, ask your questions and get my feedback in our exclusive community.
Join me every 3 weeks for a live coaching call to help you implement the lessons effectively and give you the support you need to grow your business.

The Art Biz for Rebels includes everything I wish I knew from the very beginning about setting up the foundation, building my brand, marketing my art and growing my sales. Yes, I have an amazingly successful business and I sell my paintings for thousands of dollars now, but oh, how I wish someone would have given me these tools 15 years ago! I would probably be retired on the beach by now!
Art Biz for Rebels is a 12 module program taking place over 15 weeks that starts the week of September 10, 2021.
Every week, a new training will unlock on Monday at 11am CST so you have plenty of time to absorb the training and implement it in your art business before the next training is released.
Every three weeks, you will get an implementation week. This means there will be no new lesson that week and you will have time to catch up and implement your learnings.
Absolutely! The course is open to artists all over the world.
Yes, there will be four coaching sessions with Jodie, the dates will be confirmed before the start of the program.
