About the Author
Alyson B. Stanfield is an artist advocate, workshop leader, and art-marketing consultant who knows all about self-promotion. Labeled an introvert early in life, she has challenged herself many times to come out of her shell in order to lead a rich and rewarding life. And that's what she does with her clients. Alyson has helped thousands of artists develop their careers through her online classes, publications, workshops, and free weekly Art Marketing Action newsletter all available through ArtBizCoach.com. Alyson used the self-promotion tools in I'd Rather Be in the Studio! to launch ArtBizCoach.com. Prior to that, Alyson counseled artists informally throughout her ten years as a museum curator and educator in the Midwest. She wrote this book for the many talented artists who remain professionally unfulfilled because their work is not seen and not purchased. Alyson's mission is to empower artists to say goodbye to excuses and hello to success.

Alyson's book is very easy to understand and is very well written. Beginning, emerging, as well as established artists will find somthing in this book to help me move their art business to the next level.
I highly recommend that all artists read both of these books to help you really zero in on what your goals are and how to achieve them. The organization skills you will get will make you more productive in the studio as you won't be spending as much time dealing with the business side of your art, which you have to deal with in order to be successful.
Information about online networking using LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and blogging will help you to decide what you need. Many ideas for marketing yourself (the artist) and your artwork.
Still LOVING this book! Highly recommended! I love that eventhough I haven't applied all of the principles and action steps yet, I am still benifiting from the information. Every time I do revisit a section and apply the steps she suggests, I get results. How often can you say that about a book? She has an online newsletter for artists as well that is really good,too. She helps me look forward to my continual development as a professional artist.
