As the founder of ArtBizCoach.com, 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.

Chris Zydel is a self-described "professional believer-in-the-gifts-of-others." She is a creativity coach who teaches expressive arts painting classes out of a wonderful Victorian home in Oakland, CA.
As Chris says, "Regularly diving into your creative pool renews your soul, heals your spirit, keeps your inner spark alive and allows you greater intimacy with the full depths of your being. And it's fun!" Chris has helped countless people over many years discover and deepen their connection to the creative process.
On May 12, 2009, The Arts and Healing Network's Director, Mary Daniel Hobson, interviewed Chris about her creative journey, the important teachers on her path, the benefits of taking time to retreat, transformational stories from participants in her workshops, and advice for diving more deeply into one's creative work.
