Two years ago, she entered my Art Biz Inner Circle and began taking full advantage of everything that was offered. As an aside, although we no longer offer the Inner Circle, we do continue to support artists through the Art Career Success System and our new artist masterminds.
But, no matter how hard we try, we can’t make you do the work, whether it's business or studio based.
What Suzanne wanted to share in this episode is critical to every artists' success.
We started talking about the idea of doing less (not more) in order to accomplish your goals, but it turned into a conversation about focusing more. Focusing on what matters, and nothing is more important to your professionalism as an artist than a consistent studio practice. Nothing!
Suzanne creates contemporary abstract portraits exploring the roles of women, in particular homemakers, in society. In 2013 she graduated from Claremont Graduate University’s MFA program. She received her MS in Communication from the University of Portland and a BFA in Design from Carnegie-Mellon University. She also studied drawing and painting at Napa Valley Community College and Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
Throughout her career, Suzanne has taught art and creativity workshops to students of all ages in schools, museums, private homes, and from her studio. Her work has been exhibited and collected nationally and internationally.
