I spend a lot of time around artists. They are really interesting people (most of the time) .
I started this site as a blog to collate all the conversations I was having with them, and to share that with new audiences.

I run Orso Major an award winning gallery which was at Waterloo til 2016. The gallery now operates online and you can see it here orsomajor.com
I've run artists open studio programs, worked with arts charities, organised open exhibitions, curated exhibitions in business spaces as well as within the gallery context, helped artists prepare to work with galleries, portfolio reviews, been a juror for art competitions and a whole lot more.
Currently I am working with artists to grow their businesses, which includes finding suitable galleries, commissions and media as well as managing their online presence through content creation and growing their audience and collector base.

ARTISTS STUDIO MANAGEMENT
For artists who are overwhelmed with running their business, I provide a studio management service which includes growing your social media presence, producing content, getting your story out there, web & email marketing content, reaching out to galleries, finding opportunities to exhibit and sell, promoting your exhibitions/ events and related media attention. Basically the things I teach but you still don’t want to do, and instead want it done for you by someone embedded with the industry. This is a three month package which includes business consultancy and mentoring, so it goes the way you want. Use the form below to enquire if this is for you.
If you have a venue where you would like to host an art exhibition, I can work with you to curate an exhibition, or a program of exhibitions. It is important to me that an art exhibition for your business has the desired impact which is often footfall and in turn revenue. On a project such as this we will also cover marketing of the exhibitions' program to ensure that your business objectives are met with the project.
