Carolyn Edlund founder of Artsy SharkI’m Carolyn Edlund, the founder of Artsy Shark, and the Executive Director of The Arts Business Institute. I’ve worked with hundreds of artists, makers and creative entrepreneurs on a one-to-one basis as a consultant and mentor. Strategy sessions are personalized to your individual situation and what you want to achieve. Learn more about my consulting services here.

What does a business consultation include? A one-hour phone or Skype call to discuss your art business goals, challenges, and questions. It may involve solving problems or planning for your future.  You will receive a comprehensive written follow-up, detailing our discussion and including strategies to move forward, links to resources discussed, and more. 

During our hour-long consultation, we may discuss:

  • Your portfolio or developing a collection
  • Pricing your work
  • Marketing and promotion
  • Business structure
  • Potential markets
  • Creating an effective art website
  • or other topics of your choice

Each session is completely confidential, and designed to offer you feedback, resources and resolutions to problems. My goal is to assist you in creating strategies that take your business to the next level.
