About the host, Miriam Schulman

In case we haven’t met yet, I’m an artist and founder of The Inspiration Place, where I help other artists learn how to profit from their passion. Through online classes, business coaching programs, and a top-ranked podcast, I’ve helped thousands of artists around the world develop their skill sets and create more time and freedom to do what they love. My signature coaching program, The Artist Incubator, helps artists go from so-so sales to sold-out collections.

A graduate of Dartmouth College and M.I.T, I initially pursued finance but after witnessing 9/11, I abandoned a lucrative hedge fund job to work on my art full time. Since then, my art and my story have been featured in major publications including Forbes, The New York Times, Art of Man, Art Journaling magazine as well as featured on NBC’s “Parenthood” and the Amazon series “Hunters” with Al Pacino. My forthcoming book with HarperCollins Leadership on how to make it as an artist is scheduled to be released January 31, 2023. When I’m not in the studio, you can find me hanging out with my husband, adult kids, and a tuxedo cat named Ebony.

  1. Hello I am working right now and difficult things to accomplish but love your work and want to continue to receive all you offer , just never know when I will have all my time back to follow All art all day long!
    Please font stop sending All!

  2. Thank you for reaching out to so many of us. I always find your information to be so helpful. I love art journaling but have not used it to set goals. I began making an altered book that turned out very well. I realized later that it is indeed an art journal, just in a regular book. I sometimes teach art journaling and prayer journaling. I am always for new and different ways to make art.
