Professional Practice: Empowering Artists and Artist Communities.

Consulting with Patricia Miranda

Artists are a constituency. Together we can envision and create thriving, sustainable, ethical, artist communities, that can even change the world.

The business of being an artist is a challenge. We want to be in our studios, yet our work desires and needs to be an actor in the world. Professional practice can be in line with your conceptual and ethical studio framework, to realize success as you define it, and a quality of life that reflects your ethics and your artwork. You can build a supportive ecosystem that fits the ambitions, integrity, and creative spirit of your work and life.

These consultations are firmly situated within the ethics of the individual artist and the vision of each artist's practice. No two artists are alike, no two journeys will be either.

Make it sustainable. Get organized, preserve studio time, support your work and the work of fellow artists. Consultations include goals, planning, understanding how to make your content visible to the world, curating images, organizing, website analysis, and writing thoughtfully and concisely about your work, preparing proposals and applications.

With over 20 years experience teaching business strategies and planning for artists in graduate, undergraduate, and community programs in group settings, I design an ethical and personal framework for each artist's practice. An idealistic pragmatist, my methods are designed to help showcase what is most meaningful to you and your work. Consulting on-on-one offers a focused and personalized process, to support you in creating a sustainable framework for your artistic life.

I am available to help in planning, strategies, artist statements and writing, exhibition and grant proposals, website analysis and more. Our digital tech experts and talented artists can help get your digital life in shape- prepare image files and portfolios, filing systems, social media, website design and updates, and more.

Artists can pool resources, knowledge, and opportunity in a myriad of ways to support one another in our lives and practices, today more than ever. I look forward to brainstorming those ideas with you.
