Creative professionals in a wide range of industries require fine art photographs for use in their everyday practice. Photographers who have good marketing tools can make it easy for curators, consultants, publishers, editors, art advisors, jurors and collectors to see value in the work and help artists move forward in their careers. At this event, through discussion, presentation, examples and hands-on activity, participants learn the most important promotional offerings they can create and use to keep art world eyes looking at their work.

Current research provides workshop participants with info and motivation to focus their efforts, develop current marketing tools, and shine in the spotlight.

Her photographs and photomontages have been published editorially and exhibited in Canada, the U.S., and Europe.
