Intimidated by writing your artist statement?

Wouldn’t you rather spend your last dime on great art supplies…

…than figure out what to tell someone about your work…
that they can’t already see?

Ah… if it was only as simple as seeing.

If we humans weren’t so complex with our

  • visual
  • auditory
  • kinesthetic
  • psychic, and linguistic sensibilities
    (to name just a few),

But we are, and you are.

Which means…

You need several strategies for bonding with people who love your art.

Because you never know which strategy will seal the deal!

Writing the Artist Statement “Ambitious Bundle”
is NOT for you
if you …

 Are wedded to the idea that your visual work does all the heavy lifting and you don’t need words

Are hyper-focused on the marketing aspect of your statement

Are averse to diving deep and honest self-reflection

Like your material cut & dry

Expect every page to be packed with info (sometimes pages, and your eyes, need a break from dense text!)

Have a hard time moving into and trusting an exercise when the result isn’t immediately obvious

Revealing what, how and why you do your art does not dismantle
either the beauty or mystery of it.

Quite the opposite.

Your effort to reach out invites others to
participate in the mystery and to share the beauty.

gives you just the right amount of hand-holding without insulting your intelligence.

And best of all, you don’t even have to like to write.

I have to tell you that your book has been an
invaluable tool
for me.

I used it years ago to write my first “authentic” artist statement. Now years later, I use it when my work evolves and changes because I need to 1) not only write about these changes but 2) to understand them.

I continue to use the book when a new series emerges. Writing a “statement” for a series helps me to see where the work is going and how it is all connected.

~ Michelle DeMarco, artist

From beginning to end, your book was easy to follow and understand.

~ BRUCE FOWLER, sculptor

This book was good for me to read, encouraging, and fun to do. It never occurred to me that my statement would change over time as my work evolved. Thank you.

Your book was a lifesaver! The writing exercises took away
my fear and made a difference

not just in my writing, but also in my work.

I would have been lost and frustrated without it.

~ Lauren Simon, ceramic artist

I received the book & I love it!!! It’s GREAT!!!!
Thank you so much!

~ Louise Telford, artist

Writing the Artist Statement focused my connection to my art in a new way. The whole process primed me, gave me a sense of direction.

Now, when I’m faced with choosing what to paint out of hundreds of photographs, understanding what moves me, this core place of nostalgia, gives me the reference point I need.

My artistic partner is dyslexic, with a real writing phobia.

Your book is a fantastic teaching aid.

The floodgates have opened and made him realize that he can write.

What a godsend!

~ J. Brett, London, UK

I recently sold 3 paintings!

My statement is having immediate results, which I never anticipated.

One buyer told me that my artist statement made her realize she needed to purchase one of my works!

Again, thank you.
