Hi, I’m Alexis
I am an artist, photographer, entrepreneur and your mentor!
I am happy you are here.
It means you are ready to grow and learn more about launching your art business or take it to the next level!
I have been a photographer for over twenty years. During this time I learned the ins & outs about working with clients, drafting contracts, marketing myself & more.
In addition to being a photographer I started went back to my fine art roots during the pandemic. I received my Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts from the University of Wisconsin - Stout. I was blessed to have an amazing set of professors during my time there to learn different mediums, design and more. The one thing University programs do not teach is what is expected of you once you pursue a career within the arts.
I soon realized I wasn't the only artist struggling to understand what was needed of me to gain access to more exposure and opportunities.
I was becoming frustrated and disappointed, just as you are.
Fast forward to today where I am the founder of the non-profit art organization, Art Connective. In 2019 I took over an art gallery in Wisconsin and ran the gallery for four years.
During that time frame I curated over forty group and solo exhibitions with over 1600 pieces of artwork crossing my path!
This experience gave me first had knowledge of artists struggles & confusion. Artist were struggling with pricing, final presentation issues, how to gain more exposure and more.
Once I realized that the essentials to building a business as a creative were not being shared or taught I got to work. The following online courses demystify what is expected of you in the art world while building your confidence and professionalism.
The Building Block Courses are here for you!
