to confident professional artist with a thriving business!
Hi! I’m Vanessa Turner
I offer business and creativity coaching for emerging and mid-career artists like you!
Through Creativity Coaching we will restore the creative dreams you have parked to the side so that you can go from feeling like a lost and overwhelmed hobbyist, to confident professional artist with a thriving business!
The Magic of Creativity Coaching
Get ready for something different! We know that webinars, classes and courses are a core part of our development. But at the end of the day, they alone always seem to stop sort of the meaningful deep transformation you desperately need.
Coaching is the perfect way to be supported and held accountable through the change you desperately seek.
Like everyone who has succeeded at living an abundant creative life, filled with meaning and purpose, you need access to more than just training and insights. You need a coach, a mentor, a cheerleader and a friend alongside you.
You’re in the right place!
I Know That You Want Change
- Have you been trying to figure out the path to success on your own getting nowhere?
- Do you have big dreams but no clear plan
- Are you exhausted juggling a job, friends and family, and can’t find time to create?
- Have you put your creative dreams on hold because of other responsibilities?
- Are you always admiring other artists, wishing you could create/exhibit like them?
- Do you want to pursue a career in the arts without giving up your job security?
- Are you tired of low sales or selling your work for pennies?
- Is your artwork collecting dust at home instead of being shared with the world?
- Do you desire more?
If you answered YES to any of the above, then it’s time..
Time we go from DREAMING to DOING!
Let’s harness your potential!
Don’t Put Your Dreams on Hold
Imagine how good it will feel to restore the creative dreams that you parked to the side!
Imagine how good it will feel to go from feeling like a frustrated hobbyist, struggling to find time for your passion…
to a confident professional, with a sound creativity practice and market.
You thought that posting some work online was enough to attract buyers.
But you’re realizing that it takes more to be a professional artist than a few instagram likes.
It’s one thing to sell a couple artworks here and there.
But it’s another thing to build a long term, sustainable art business
that supports your passion and gives you the financial freedom to live the life you want.
Let’s Make It Happen
Through creativity coaching, you will:
- Get the kind of support and guidance you need on a regular.
- Formulate practical goals for your art career.
- Develop your unique creative practice and bring balance to your life.
- Create routinely and build a body of beautiful work
- Discover your authentic and unique artistic identity
- Become one of the most sought-after creators on the exhibition invitation.
- Learn the skills that could increase your sales by 50+ %
- Understand how to manage creative blocks and obstacles
- Harness opportunities to stretch beyond what you can do on your own
- Overcome your fear of exhibiting and talking about your work
- Develop resilience to deal with setbacks, delays and criticism
- And much, much more!

Questions women ask before saying YES to Creativity Coaching:
Coaching focuses on strategic planning and personal growth. Psychotherapy focuses on solving problems by analyzing your past, focusing on issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, destructive behaviors, addiction etc. Unlike therapy, coaching does not involve diagnosis or treatment of any conditions/disorder.
Creativity coaches are specially trained to deal with the issues that creative work and the creative industry often bring up. If your goals are largely focused on enhancing and optimizing your creative work, then a creativity coach is the type of coach you need.
Your coaching fee is an investment in yourself. Ask yourself, “What is my dream worth to me? When I succeed, will coaching have been worth it?”
Before you begin your coaching sessions, you’ll receive tips on how to maximise our time together. Together, we’ll ensure you receive value for your investment.
If you need extra sessions to understand the strategies we’ve discussed then you WILL get extra sessions. I don’t ever want you to feel stuck or confused. It’s important to me that you always see your way forward.
The role of a coach is not to tell you what to do, but provide you with the tools, resources and perspectives you need to identify what’s best for you. As your coach, I will show you the ropes, empower and equip you with the elements critical for success, and then allow you to grow on your own. My goal is to ‘teach you how to fish,’ so to speak.
No, I do not act as an agent or manager. Instead, I will help you to build your confidence so that you can network, find your market and make the money you deserve!
