SIGNATURE 90-DAY TRANSFORMATIONAL PROGRAM FOR ARTISTS TO LEVEL UP AND MAKE THEIR MARK!

  • What if… you felt confident sharing and selling your art at prices that had you feeling exhilarated…
  • What if… you could market your art with authenticity, passion and ease…
  • What if… you could wake up knowing exactly where to put your energy towards growing your BIG artistic dreams…?!

…without building a fancy website, hustling to get a million social media followers, or feeling icky selling your art?

Here’s how most artists try to sell their art:
  • They create their art and then take a few (or maybe 50) photos of it and then get on Instagram to post their art…
  • But then they get overwhelmed and chicken out sharing, because they are not sure what to say, or whether or not to put a price on it, and then what price would they even charge?! And OMG everyone is doing REELS! Will anyone even see my post and why am I even trying???
  • Sometimes they work up the nerve to post their art, and someone actually contacts them about buying it, and they freak out because they are not sure what to charge, and how to ship their art properly, and how much is shipping a huge painting across the country?!
  • Sadly, they self sabotage, or charge way too little, and the postage is almost equivalent to the price and they feel defeated.
  • Eventually, these artists give up. I don’t blame them! Feeling like they are not confident in sharing and selling their art sucks. As it does feeling like they are an imposter or inauthentic in the way they share their art.
…but it DOES NOT have to be this way!
Hi! I’m MATI (like Ahoy Matey), and I founded The Artist Level Up Program
I’ve been where you are with a big unattainable seeming artistic dreams. That kid’s book dream, that home decor line, that dream art studio with big windows and good light and that desire to have a sold out art show… it’s all possible!

But how does one take those big leaps and know where to begin and then keep momentum?

I ended up going back to art school when I was almost 30, when a lot of my friends were adulting buying homes and becoming lawyers.

I paid an obscene amount on tuition into unpredictable “barista bound” ART SCHOOL. Heck, even though I loved making art, I couldn’t even call myself an artist at the time!

When I look back, the key piece for me in going for it, was working with a coach! She was there for me when I was building up my portfolio, exploring all the avenues (art therapy, graphic design, textile design…omg!) and working up the courage to apply to school, and then cheering me on to keep going while in the weeds waitressing! I ended up going to the California College of the Arts in the Illustration & Painting Program.

Upon graduation, I pitched my art to my dream illustration agency and repped by a top illustration agent for 7 years. Yay! My illustration path worked out with commercial benchmarks—I had my art in big stores like Target, on a billboard in NYC with my giant elephant painting, a dream home decor line with pillows, vases and a couch!! My art on cards and clothes! I also illustrated 4 children’s books which was a long held dream and published 2 painting books!

But I was HUSTLING to make an income and pulling all nighters on tight illustration deadlines, and not in control of my own destiny with taking ALL the jobs, and giving my agent 50%! I wasn’t living the dream with feeling abundant or worthy or aligned in my artwork.

Then when I was 36, I went through a sudden divorce after 6 months of deep grief and not working much, I had to pay my rent. I did NOT want to return to waitressing that I had done before and during art school.

Cue working up the courage to hire another coach to support me in my next big step. She helped me while writing my first book Daring Adventures in Paint and then encouraged me to develop my first solo online painting class by the same name. And guess what? Withing a day of sending out my art newsletter, I had made $10k with 100 people signing up, and by the time class began I had 350 people signed up at $100 each and made 35k in a month!

Just as amazing as having my rent paid for months and a cushion to continue painting, I loved seeing the transformation in the women I was teaching, for when they were DARING ON THE CANVAS, they became daring in life! They stepped out of their comfort zones and started dating for the first time in years, got their first art studios and published dream books! I then expanded to teaching international art retreats in Costa Rica, Morocco and Mexico, and started organically coaching other artists when I had learned, while painting from my heart. The commercial art I was making before didn’t feel aligned, and so I left my illustration agency.

Now 10 years later, I finally feel like I’ve cracked the code of how to make MONEY while being an artist making work that I love. What happened?! I realized I needed to LOVE and value myself and UPLEVEL my worth. Through the darkness in my divorce, I realized I was the one I was waiting for. We need to be our fiercest advocates, but sometimes we also need generous support to show us what’s possible and root for us. We are here to Make our Mark and Show the World our Magic!

In stepping into my business from a place of love and worthiness, I was able to build my business to making consistent 10k – 20k months! This was through a combination of leaning into what I truly loved—painting original abstract art, teaching online classes and art retreats and sharing authentically my passion with coaching other artists! I want to see other artists thrive and save them from my 20 years of trial & error, and give them the quickest and most abundant path! So, I put together a program to teach my signature methodology and that is how “The Artist Level Up Program: Make Your Mark” was born!

“WHEN I STARTED PURSUING A CREATIVE PATH, I DIDN’T EVEN HAVE A WEBSITE OR BUSINESS CARDS.

I was struggling to find my voice and really needed a community I could connect with. Mati’s program is just the right mix of butt kicking and support. Here are a few of the things I’ve accomplished since taking Mati’s course:

  • Landed an ANTRHOPOLOGIE LINE!
  • Created a website
  • Featured in Design*Sponge
  • Launched two collections
  • Completed an artist residence in Hudson, NY
  • Had a pop up shop and live painting event at Pottery Barn
  • Started The Creative Brunch Series and hosted several maker workshops in my local area and so much more!

Also started my Daring Adventures in traveling to Italy and Costa Rica on art retreats and hosting my own in Bali soon! I’m just getting started an I’m excited for all we will do together!!”

– Nikki Cade, Artist

“MY WIFE AND I HAVE A MINDFULNESS WORKSHOP BUSINESS. IT’S GOING WELL, BUT WE’RE REALLY A LOT BETTER AT THE TEACHING THAN THE MARKETING…

A friend recommended Mati to help us clarify our marketing strategy. Well, our one-hour session with her was like JET FUEL. By the time she sent us a detailed action plan by email, we knew exactly what we wanted to do and exactly how we were going to do it. So great! She was the perfect combination of encouraging and innovative. She really stretched us, but in ways that we felt excited about. We’d highly recommend her to anyone that’s looking for ways to extent their workshop business – or really any homegrown biz that requires marketing.”

– Craig & Devon Hase, Mindfulness Coaches & Authors

Craig and Devon started selling out their mindfulness retreats in Iceland and other amazing spots after working with me!!
