Dear Friends, 

With 2017 beginning, I’m excited to share the new direction for In Bocca al Lupo Fine Art. From the jewel box gallery in Milwaukie to the elegant space in Oregon City, the vision that created a community for artists and art lovers continues to evolve. 

The best part of owning an art gallery is supporting, teaching and coaching fellow artists to accomplish their passions. When I pause to reflect on what brings me the most joy, I realize it isn’t a physical building, but rather the people who come through the door. This simple thought shapes my focus for the future. Over the next few months, look for updates on my personal and professional websites to better reflect the work that brings me the most satisfaction - teaching, mentoring and coaching.

As a mentor and coach, I encourage artists to develop a solid portfolio, while guiding them through the promotional process. Having a well-constructed platform increases professional confidence and visibility in the art world. 

As a coach, I collaborate with artists who have enjoyed rich careers, yet may not be taking full advantage of digital marketing opportunities. I help artists inventory a lifetime body of work thus increasing potential value while concurrently expanding sales opportunities. A clear catalog facilitates inclusion in exhibitions or sales to private collectors and assists estate executors to sell or donate the body of work. 

Whether teaching art or coaching, if requested I use bio-energy counseling techniques to successfully break through blocks and clear old programming initiating renewed enthusiasm for the artistic process. 

If you know you’re serious about promoting your art or want to schedule a class for your group, drop me a note at inboccaallupofineart@gmail.com. 

The world is digital. Community is everywhere. We create our own circles of influence and support and I want to help you achieve your goals. While I won’t be in the Oregon City location after January, I will be doing what I have always done: growing as a person and helping others in their journeys as creative souls. Look for me under the same business name, In Bocca al Lupo Fine Art. Here’s to new beginnings and new horizons!
