Just in case you haven't heard......

Lori Siebert, Phyllis Dobbs, Anne Brown and I will be hosting a fun packed artist's retreat at the beach in Destin, Fl.  It's called ArtBiz Jam and it promises to be an unforgettable weekend.

In addition to happy hours, a crab boil and lots of freebies and surprises we will also be sharing a few things that we have learned along the way.

We are keeping this gathering small and we are almost at full capacity. Also registration closes on August 10th (Saturday).

For the past month I have been sharing interviews with the "instructors" that will be participating. This weeks interview is with Lori Siebert but be sure to check out interviews with Phyllis and Anne.

And now, without further ado, heeeeeere's Lori!

Why did you want to be involved with ArtBizJam?

One of the wonderful things about creative people is how they love to be together and share ideas and support one another. I truly value my creative friends. This is an opportunity to do just what I love...spend time with fun,interesting people and share what I have learned along the way... while having an incredibly fun time.

What will people get out of attending this particular workshop?

A lot of camaraderie,fun,bonding and support from other creative people…thought provoking conversation about your dreams and goals,practical tips about the business side of things, good fun,wine,the beach

What makes this workshop/retreat special and different from other workshops?

When we talked about how to make this different,we decided on two things...make it small and intimate so we can really cater to the people who attend...and make it about BOTH side of the brain. We all love to create...that is a given...but,we also have to find ways to be efficient and make we can continue to make a living creatively. This is what we want to share.

How do you reconcile your passion of creating art with the business side of art?

I am really lucky in that my husband is my business partner and we have an agent,CourtneyDavis. I really do get to focus on the creative. But,it is important to have an understanding of our business as a whole and where it is going.

What are you looking forward to fun-wise with ArtBizJam?

Time with really great,creative folks…great food,sharing,learning from one another…an overall re-charge!
