Create Your BREAKTHROUGH YEAR in 2019!

My name is Mary Gilkerson.

I’m an artist and have been painting, exhibiting, and selling my work as a visual artist for most of my life. After teaching painting at a small college here in South Carolina for more than 20 years, my painting practice was thriving and had reached the level that I was able to leave the college to go full time in my studio. I was able to do this after developing processes in my practice – in the painting, business, and my creative life – that allowed me to build an audience large enough for me to thrive. Now it’s my pleasure to share those processes that form the Painter’s Path with you.

Do you have big goals for your painting and you want to get there faster?

The biggest thing that holds artists back from reaching their goals and making the impact they can is that myth of the Starving Artist…
That idea that you can’t make any money in art…
That you have to suffer to be any good…
That succeeding as an artist is just too hard.

I get it.

I was told those stories too…and by my own family members.

But the truth is, those are just stories.

I wrote another story for myself. One that was about success…on my terms.
Rewriting that story of the starving artist into a thriving artist meant that I’ve been able to build a multi-6 figure business in just over 3 years.

That’s why I’m here…

To help you rewrite your story…

From the “Starving Artist” to the “Successful, Thriving Artist”.

Ten years ago I was drowning in administrative work at the college. I’d had success in my artistic career, but teaching full-time at a small college meant that administrative work was eating up my time.
I did not have enough time to paint, to exercise my creative genius muscle.
And I found it hard to get enough time in the studio.
That rippled into my exhibitions and sales.
It felt like that muscle had atrophied!
So I challenged myself to create a new painting practice, one that revolved around making a small painting every day.
I started to take small steps to develop a painting practice that would work in the time I had.
Baby steps at first but they added up over time to create a major shift in my work.
I discovered that using a framework, I could accomplish a tremendous amount in a small period of time. And not only did I begin to make more paintings, more good paintings consistently, but I found myself painting more freely and fearlessly, without all those lingering self-doubts that had crept in.
I was happier…more creative…painting more “in the flow”…
And when I applied that framework to building my audience, amazing things started to happen!
First one solo show, then two, and then three in one year alone.
Major Awards and major grants followed.
When I finally had a moment to breathe, I started asking myself what it was that was working?
What I was doing different?
What was it that got me to the point where painting, building an engaged audience, and selling my work wasn’t a struggle…
And the process of bringing a painting from the studio to my audience felt like a natural flow?
And I figured it out.
At first I wasn’t sure “it” would work for anybody else, but I tested it with my students at the college…and “it” worked for them too.
Just to be sure so I used it with the people in my workshops…and it worked. My students had breakthroughs too.
Well “it” (what I started calling THE ART+WORK+LIVING FRAMEWORK) worked…again…and again…and again…
Since then I’ve taught these systems in separate courses both at the college, and in then in my online courses.
But always separately.
Now for the first time, I’m bringing all three together in one course.
