How We Began

Dear Artist,

I wanted to make more money from my art but I didn’t know where to start.
And I didn’t want to have to become a pushy salesperson.
So I worked with art galleries but they didn’t sell enough of my art.
I didn’t know how to find more collectors. Because I didn’t know my niche.
I lacked focus and confidence.
I tried business and marketing courses.
But conventional business and marketing only works if you’re selling goods or services.
I realized that an artist’s product is emotion.
So I reviewed art history and I studied luxury marketing.
And I discovered how all successful artists, living or dead, determined their niche.
I call it “The 4-Part Code©.”
Armed with my 4-Part Code, in 2005, I moved to San Francisco and I fired my representatives.
Yet I sold $103,246 of my art during my first year as a full-time artist, without connections or any support.
Then the 2008-2009 recession hit.
Much like today, over 50% of the art galleries in the United States went out of business.
But, I knew that the affluent make money in up and down markets, and they keep buying art.
I also learned that people who care about art, care about the artist.
Not the middleman.
My collectors made introductions to other collectors, that my galleries would never make.
Through referrals I gained over 80% more art sales and I kept 100% of the money. Because I didn’t have to pay 50% in sales commissions to my representatives.
After receiving national press attention, artists began asking for my help. I didn’t have the time.
Then my intern graduated from the San Francisco Academy of Art with over $200,000 of debt.
She had no job prospects. Her mother recently died of cancer. Then her father lost his job.
This inspired me to create the Making Art Making Money® program.
My students graduate by determining their niche. And by selling enough of their art to at least cover their tuition investment.
My students either sell their art or they don’t.
Either way, it’s okay. Because they learn why they did sell their art and why they didn’t.
Is it easy to sell your art? We all know that it’s not.
Is it possible to sell your art? Absolutely!
We’re looking for five artists.
