  • I’m not good with technology...
  • What if I mess it up?

If you are an artist and creative looking to make a living from your art, but your confidence is lacking and you need some support and practical guidance...

Have we met?

 

I’m Sophie and I live to be creative.

I’m a Brit now living in the Perth Hills, Western Australia with my partner Nigel, our two cats, and two dogs. I landed here ‘accidentally’ after a few years traveling as a ‘ digital nomad’ with my online business and am now very excited to call this home. I’m also mother to my 2 beautiful grown-up daughters, one of whom I’m proud to also call my business partner (you'll see her around!).

I am also a fully qualified and experienced Artist, Educator, award-winning Business Coach, and Entrepreneur. 
Having brought together my two passions, entrepreneurship, and creativity - I help artists to build a profitable business around their own art practice.

I have spent over 15 years working with hundreds of business start-ups and now artists; to help them gain the clarity, confidence, and self-belief, as well as all the practical business skills they need to build that dream art business and design their ideal lifestyle.

"Sophie has a wealth of knowledge about motivating artists to believe and act consistently to create their own successful art business.
