Welcome! Create is a membership site where you pay a small monthly fee to access training materials and resources designed especially for artists. New content is added each month, and there is a rich library of subjects for artists who want to create a living from their art. Work on your business in your own time, from your own home, and let us support you as you grow as an artist.
You create a password and will be able to login to the site at any time from the comfort of your own home. Work through each lesson at your own pace and take action on what you have learnt. Start seeing results in your business and share with other artists along the way.
"This Business of Art covers everything you need to get started as an artist or refresh a business that already exists. I have worked as an artist for many years but felt overwhelmed by new technology and trying to keep up with social media. This membership provided a clear path for me to follow and I feel more relaxed and creative as a result."
- T. Elliott

What kind of time commitment should I expect?
As much as you want. I recommend spending at least a couple of hours each week to work on the areas you need help with. You can spend more time on it if you want, but this is the minimum to get you thinking consistently and creatively about your business. At first, you may want to spend an additional couple of hours putting what you have learnt into action.
What materials will I need?
You will need access to a computer and good wifi. Having a printer nearby is also handy but not necessary. Printable workbooks and checklists can be downloaded and completed on a separate Word or Pages document, and the guides and templates can be downloaded onto your computer to read at any time.
How much does it cost?
The membership costs $29 AUD per month. You control your subscription. Cancel anytime, no questions asked.
What if I don't like it?
I want you to be happy with your membership and get amazing value from it. Please take time to look through the contents above to see if this is going to benefit you. If you have completed your first month, and don't feel it is right for you, then we have a money back guarantee.
Do I need to be working as an artist before I join the membership?
No. You may still be studying or just starting out, or you might have another job and be doing this part-time with the goal of turning your passion into a business one day. Now's the time to learn these skills! A passion for your art and a willingness to learn is all you need.
How long will the membership be available?
You manage your own subscription so you'll have access to the membership site for as long as you keep your subscription. There are lots of guides and templates for you to download and keep forever.
What experience do you have and what makes you a good teacher?
I have a degree in fine art and have been working as a professional artist for twenty years. I am currently on my own journey of building my art business so will share with you what I learn along the way. I am passionate about inspiring people to live a creative life and love encouraging people to have a go at something they've always wanted to do!
What are some of the topics covered in the membership?
The core categories are listed above. There are a variety of text, workbooks, checklists and guides to cover different learning preferences, with video and slides coming soon. We will cover everything from business models to finance, marketing to social media, and so much more. This Business of Art shows you how you can get the most from your art business and support yourself as an artist.
Will I have to report to anyone?
You work on your own terms here, however we encourage you to engage and share your wins with other members in the community. You can also ask questions in the comments section of each lesson. The Artist Community is there for you if you would like some feedback or want to ask questions. That's where you'll find me!
What will I gain from joining the membership?
This Business of Art is designed to support your business by giving you a greater understanding of what is required to build a career as an artist. It aims to inspire you to think creatively and find your unique expression through whichever avenue you pursue. Once you have the business side organised, you will have more time to create and grow as an artist.
