I help Artists, Art Buyers, and Art Businesses find their unique place in the art world.
The artworld is not an easy place to get into. It thrives in its lack of opacity and is in a lot of scenes a ‘closed club’ this perception of exclusivity only rises the prices and continues to perpetuate the myth that art is only for the rich.
This is a notion that we need to abolish, making the art world a place that can include more and more diverse players.
Support for artists in all points of their career.
Helping creatives better navigate the business side of their practice, so they can focus on creating amazing art.
For Art Buyers
Helping you start your art collection.
Collecting art is a labor of love, we help collector find art they’ll love.
For Art Businesses
Business savvy solutions for your art business.
Helping museum, galleries and institutions find a stable footing between the business world and the art world.
Over 2020 I started interviewing artists and other people from the art world and distributing these conversations as podcasts in an effort to connect with artists in a time of need.
On Video Format.
I love making short videos showing some of the behind scenes of my art practice, as well as showing how I manage my exhibitions and art sales. Sharing is caring.
Public speaking came into my life almost by accident, by no means it was something I thought about pursuing but once I got into it, I fell head-over-heels for it. When I was younger, I wanted to be a rock-star and play guitar solos in front of thousands… This is as close as I got.
My topics of my talks are: #Art, #ArtBusiness, #CreativeEntrepreneuship and #CreativeEmpowerment
I’ve given talks in over a dozen cities in a handful of countries.

In 2018 I published my first book: How to sell art online.
I wrote it to help artists create their own, tailor-made strategy to create their own audience, promote their art, and create sales opportunities completely online, allowing them to connect with art lovers worldwide.
I am an artist too. For over a decade I’ve been creating, exhibiting, and selling art all over the world. Sharing what I learned over these years with other artists has always been important for me.
For this, I regularly advise artists on how to create their own strategies and workflows to grow their career.
Artist Stop Being Poor!
An online club for artists created in 2018, it’s become a place where artists across the globe can meet up to talk about their art practices.
Includes weekly meetings, networking, resources, and an art shop.

Over the years I’ve selected a group of artists to work closely to.
For those artists, I procure exhibitions and sales opportunities within my network.
I regularly host events to artworks I love, since 2010 I’ve organized over 50 of these events. They vary in size and location, so each time you’ll be faced with new artists in a new environment.
