Hi, I’m Miriam and I’m a full-time artist, art teacher, and art business coach.
I help artists (from amateurs to professionals) develop their skills, tap into their creativity, and grow thriving art businesses through my online classes, business coaching programs, and internationally top-ranked podcast, The Inspiration Place.
Ever since the fourth grade, I wanted to be an artist but didn’t believe I could make a living at it. Although I studied art history in college, I ended up taking the practical route, pursuing a career in finance. After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, I had a wake-up call and abandoned my lucrative hedge fund job on Wall Street to work on my art full-time.
Through my online art classes like Watercolor Portrait Academy, Go Figure, and Farm Animal Spirits, my students get past the fear and doubt and truly enjoy painting their passion (whether they haven’t picked up a paintbrush since college, they’re doing it for the first time, or they’re an old pro looking for new tricks.)
If you’re committed to finally stop putting yourself on the back burner, I can’t wait to help you reconnect with your inner artist and give you the techniques for success.
See you on the inside!!
