About the Author

Alyson B. Stanfield is an artist advocate, workshop leader, and art-marketing consultant who knows all about self-promotion. Labeled an introvert early in life, she has challenged herself many times to come out of her shell in order to lead a rich and rewarding life. And that’s what she does with her clients. Alyson has helped thousands of artists develop their careers through her online classes, publications, workshops, and free weekly Art Marketing Action newsletter—all available through ArtBizCoach.com.Alyson used the self-promotion tools in this book to launch ArtBizCoach.com. Prior to that, Alyson counseled artists informally throughout her ten years as a museum curator and educator in the Midwest. She wrote this book for the many talented artists who remain professionally unfulfilled because their work is not seen and not purchased. Alyson’s mission is to empower artists to say goodbye to excuses and hello to success.
