1:1 Artist Coaching

Are you out of your creative practice and/or are stuck on how to find your own artistic voice?

Do you want to have your work noticed, but you’re overwhelmed of where & how to start?

Are you an artist or maker looking to break into the market & art festival scene?

Are you a seasoned pro looking for some fresh ideas?

You are in good company with the numerous makers and artists I’ve coached over the years to create authentic work, apply, land, and supercharge their creative journey.

Hi, my name is Susie! I’m excited to meet you where you are, and equip you with the tools and tips you need to creative an authentic creative voice and have your work supported.

For the past 16 years, I’ve been an educator/artist and have lived the ebbs and flows of the creative industry.

I’ve been on both sides: as an artist finding my creative style and voice, applying to all types of events to now, the Founder of Locally Made Market in Cary.

I’m a wife, a mom of 2, an educator, a contemporary artist, and the owner of a pop-up market and ally consultant/public speaker. Just like I’m sure is true of you, I have a million plates spinning at one time!

The artists + makers I’ve had the honor of coaching coin me as someone who creates a safe place to lay down their fears, frustrations and feelings of being overwhelmed.

I’m passionate about taking what I have learned the hard way over the years, and turning these lessons into effective strategies to turn your struggles into successes.

My artistic coaching services will provide you with a straightforward road map and useful tips to help you gain confidence in the creative world.

My 1:1 Coaching Sessions Include:

  • One hour private 1:1 session with me over a video conference call you can record.

  • Pre-session questionnaire you’ll fill in to ensure your session is personalized to exactly what you need. For example: do you need art and market application tips? Or how to create an effective market/festival set up? Nothing is off limits!

  • Two hour comprehensive review of your website, social media, and product suite before I join our call. If you do not have an online presence yet, no worries (I can coach you through that).

  • 3 action items you can take away and achieve within 30 days of our call.

What My Clients Are Saying:

"Susie's 1:1 Artist Coaching helped me get out of my own head! The hour spent with her was invaluable in getting me "unstuck" in my creative endeavor. She made sure we were both prepared for our discussion with a custom, thoughtful set of questions via email before our phone call, then followed up afterward with another opportunity to provide feedback on my ideas. I highly recommend working with Susie! She brings a lot of knowledge from her own experience as an artist and is very good at helping others reframe their own questions so that answers can come more easily.” -N.R.

“Meeting with Susie about my creative small business was inspiring and motivating. It was obvious that she researched my online and social media presence by the thorough feedback we discussed, and she also provided notes I could take with me. The feedback and suggestions she made were very helpful, and I was able to implement some ideas immediately. I highly recommend a consultation with her!” -A.S.

"Spending time with Susie gave me the encouragement I needed to go into my first art market with confidence. She was organized & thorough in answering my questions & concerns; giving me tips from creating a cohesive look across social media platforms, keeping track of inventory & setting-up, to wearing comfy shoes and bringing snacks. I highly recommend Susie’s Consultation Services for anyone wanting to grow their creative business! Thanks, Susie!"  -T. P-Tan
