Mentoring for Artists

Would you like a focused and constructive 1-2-1 discussion about your art? Do you struggle to articulate the themes in your work? Would you like someone with 15+ years of teaching art history and cultural studies to help you tease out connections and think through critical ideas?

I can help! As a writer and university lecturer I’ve been guiding artists on how to put ideas into coherent words for over 15 years. Don’t lose your audience with waffle or confusing art speak.

Pricing

  • Mentoring £150

    We’ll meet for an hour on Zoom and talk about your practice. I’ll ask you questions and get to know what your work is about and what messages you want to communicate. You get the zoom recording of our discussion plus a brief written summary.

  • Artist statement £300

    Do you struggle to communicate your ideas on paper? Does the thought of writing a statement about your work make you pop your head in the sand? Procrastinating over that artist bio? It’s one of the essential pieces of written comms you can’t do without. You’ve got about 300 words to sum up who you are and what your work is about. I’ll help you keep things nice and tight. The price includes an hour on zoom with me to discuss your work.

  • Press release £300

    Don’t let word-waffle get the better of you, it creates barriers to understanding your work. I’ll help you to say exactly what you need to say about your art, and in a way that makes sense. The price includes an hour on zoom with me to discuss your work.

  • Something else you need?

    Let me know and I’ll let you know whether I can help.

Testimonials

‘I can't thank you enough for helping me through this sorting out of my narrative... I'm really glad I went through this process.’ Mary Jo Matsumoto

‘My brain just isn’t wired for writing so I was so grateful that you helped me put my jumbled ideas into some sort of coherent structure for my artist statement. It helped me with my practice too. I’ve become more confident in what I’m doing and saying about my work.’ Heidi Evans
