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.
Through my online art classes like Watercolor Portrait Academy, Painting With Words, 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.)
can make a thriving living from their art
I felt like I had so much to share about how I built my business - that I created the Inspiration Place Podcast to give a voice to my story. After dozens of episodes on mindset, marketing, building your email list, attracting high end commissions, and more, people begged me for a way to get more personalized help.
That’s why I developed the Artist Incubator Coaching Program to work with artists to go beyond the technique and grow thriving art businesses - so that they can have the time and freedom to create art and do what they love.
Maybe you've seen my work on TV?
My art has been featured in major publications including The New York Times, Art of Man, and Art Journaling magazine by Stampington, as well as seen on NBC’s “Parenthood” and the Amazon series “Hunters” with Al Pacino. Moreover, my art has been sold around the world and included in New York museum gift shops. Published works can be seen on my longtime blog, which is going into its 14th year, and in several, full length features in Professional Artist magazine.
When I’m not painting or planning art world domination, you can find me in a museum or spending time with my husband, two adult kids, and a tuxedo cat named Ebony.
