Work with Me

One-on-One

60 min - $85 plus GST and fees. 
- in-depth, authentic conversations
online / in person (if we are in the same region)

It’s just you and me, uninterrupted.

One-on-ones are 1 hour of dedicated time, 100% focused on you, your art, your challenges and your questions.

I give you an external view of your internal process so that you can find yourself and see where you truly are; what’s working and what’s not. The opportunity to see what others see in your art is invaluable.

I bring an infusion of trust, curiosity, positivity and enthusiasm to every session so that you walk away feeling relieved, revived, seen and excited about what’s next.

All my personal experience as a practicing artist, curator, educator, arts administrator and entrepreneur is at your fingertips, totally accessible to you, which allows you take a giant leap from where you are to where you want to be in one single session.

One-on-ones are for you if you’re ready to take the next step all on your own.

One-on-ones are not for you if you want someone to hold your hand and help you the whole way.

The topic of conversation is 100% up to you. 

Some Suggested Types of Sessions:  

Discovery - You start talking - about anything and everything. I ask you questions. From this, we make a map and discover where you are.  

Focusing - We zoom in and focus on one thing. We talk it through from start to finish and a make a plan for your next steps along the way.

Review -  We look at your art, ideas, dreams, and projects. I give you my feedback and help you to see what you have and where to go next.

Dreaming - You tell me your dream. We talk about it. Where could it go? What could it be? Then we figure out the steps that will get you there.

Refinement - You show me something that is just about finished. We give it a final polish and a final run through.

Strategy & Planning - We create a strategic plan that will help you reach your goals.

I only have a limited number of one-on-one sessions each month, so book now to secure yours.


When you are properly interviewed, you will hear things that you didn’t hear about yourself before. You’ll let it flow from your depths and the heights. You’ll think harder. You’ll surprise yourself.

Work with Me

ART CORE

~ a special one-on-one session ~


80 min - $150 plus GST and fees
online / in person (if we are in the same region)

How good would it feel to have the exact words you need to explain your art already figured out?

I know how hard it is to put your art down into words. To take everything you are and everything your work is and fit into a simple artist statement or piece of writing.

Sometimes this feels totally impossible.

Now, you don’t have to do it alone.

I have had, or conducted, heaps of studio visits over the years. I know what works and what doesn’t. How to jump start conversation, draw out useful information and make you feel comfortable from start to finish.

Art CORE sessions take a one-on-one session and go that extra mile.

At the end of the session, you’ll come away with:

  • a copy of my notes —  this will allow you to see what caught my attention and emphasize things that you maybe didn’t think were important. You’re welcome to take your own notes too.

  • a recording of our session for you to review later -- this allows you to be more present in the session and put all your attention into what you’re saying in the moment.

  • 5 - 10 lines about your work, ready to be plugged into your artist statement, website or proposal -- this will allow you see what defines your art and the values, beliefs and concepts that make up its foundation. This will fit perfectly and easily into your artist statement, grants, applications, sales copy, communications with your clients and anywhere else you need to write about your art.

  • a one sentence summary about your art -- now you can confidently answer “What kind of work do you make?” whenever you are asked.

Do I need to have a specific question to book a session? 

Not at all! If you feel called to book a one-on-one session, that's all you need. As we talk, we will uncover your questions and concerns as we go. 


What if I don't have anything to say? 

I am really great with questions and can help you find what you’re truly trying to say. We’re just having a conversation. All you need to do is show up and be ready to think, or perhaps even more importantly, be ready to feel


What if I have too much to say? What if I'm all over the place? 

I am a fantastic abstract random thinker - I can connect just about any thought with any other thought. I'm also a really great linear thinker - putting things in order and thinking things through. It’s perfect 'One. Two' combination. 


What if I just want to you tell me what to do? 

Well, then working with me will likely not be a good fit. I'm committed to working with artists who are willing to look at themselves, and their art, deeply and honestly. Yes, it's hard work. But having done it, is one of the best feelings in the world. 


How often do we meet to talk?

I check in with you about 3 months after our one-on-one session to see how things are going — if you’d like to chat sooner than that, please just email me! From there, we book your next session.
