As the founder of, Alyson B. Stanfield helps teach thousands of artists around the world how to promote their art more effectively and make a better living. She is the author of I'd Rather Be in the Studio! The Artist"s No-Excuse Guide to Self-Promotion and the popular Art Biz Blog.  Alyson is a regular contributor to Art Calendar magazine and has given workshops and keynote addresses in 20 states.

The Arts and Healing Network is delighted to share Alyson's sage advice.  We get many queries about how to support oneself as an artist and we hope that this podcast will answer some of those questions.

Included in this podcast are the "Four Steps for Selling Your Art," which has been a classic way for artists to make a living.  These steps, however are broad enough to be of value to those who are doing non-commercial art as well. 

One of the steps is good communication, and Alyson offers great guidelines and tips for sending e-newsletters and using online tools like Facebook to connect with your audience.  May this information inspire you to share your work more fully with the world.
