What you'll do

I provide a 2 hour discussion about the necessary steps for creating a plan to become a working artist. To make a living as an artist. I work mostly by telling stories from my 40 years of struggle to integrate art into my daily life. I talk from a perspective of knowing specific fundamental truths about the human experience. Truths based on metaphor, language, empirical science; and sociological and emotional insight. Nothing teaches like our fundamental failures in life. To learn is to grow beyond what we think we cannot do. Dropping the pathology of the narcissistic self, the ego self; long enough to examine the broken self.... Provides a space to heal, find acceptance and strength, and the ability to solve ones own problems. Strength and success are built out of the confidence that is sustained by the nurturing of the creative spirit. Once it thrives, it can never be destroyed.

I can change lives, saved marriages, transformed trajectories in a single sitting.

We will be in my studio, my home, my sculpture park over looking the pond, at my private gallery or out in nature for a walk on the many trails along the river.

Light food and beverage of choice are provided.

I left my last job when I was 24. I road my bike home because I knew I was free and would never work for anyone else the rest of my life. I have been independent, living the creative life for the last 30 years. I make a substantial living as a working artist. The cabin I rent on AirBNB is located within a small sculpture park sanctuary; I built myself. I have multiple streams of income, and live debt free. I read 4 hours a day, and study the people and sociological experiences I encounter. I have mentored with world class craftsman, healers and intellectuals. My degree is in Music.
