Coach for artists since 1998:


Ever since I started working with Art as an Art critic and Editor of be-Art Magazine, I noticed a strong ability to understand and talk to artists. This is how I naturally became a coach for artists more than Seventeen years ago.  They find with me a caring attitude, and always a frank but positive critic. I work either for beginner/emerging artists or mid-career/established artists. They are from the US, from France, Italy, Spain, Japan, Brazil and so on. They come to me because they feel the need of an external look at their Art and Career.

ART: I analysis the technique, the content with detailed arguments . I give recommendations to improve their art.

PRESENCE: I help you to improve your Online presence. I help you to identify the right gallery, the right venue.

CAREER: I help to build a career, to take a career to the next step

Because an artist is unique my advice are unique and custom.
