Teaching Heart-Centered Artists how to lay a foundation of success on which to build a business that grows easily and profitably. No more struggle or scarcity!

My fellow artists

If you’re wondering how on earth you’re going to make more money and keep building the business of your art
– then we really need to talk.

You see, after I took my own jewelry business to a very high level of success I started getting tons of requests to coach artists with their marketing and business – and I’ve pretty much always turned them down.

However, back in 2011, I launched the Artful Success Program. It was a “raving” success.

I realized how much I really love to help artists succeed and make more money! (I’m actually freakishly good at it too!)

I was very hesitant to start this program as I have completed some similar programs and was expecting it to be repetitive to what I had already learned.

In just the first week I was making changes in my business that were showing results.

After finishing the Artful Success program, I was able to strategically plan exactly where I wanted my art and business to go.

The program gave me the skills to know what and how to change the things I was doing.

The program also allowed things that were more abstract to become much more clear. For example: the fine details of how to set up your website, what to put in it, what NOT to put in it, colors, etc.

And mostly, the willingness of Tonya to be so supportive and helpful, sharing her knowledge and resources.

After making a few changes, I have at least doubled my prior income and doors keep opening up for me, sometimes without even trying.

This was the best investment in my business I have made to date.

Really, though, what I discovered was this: most artists are a lot like I used to be: you're tired of trying to do it all.

You're sick of feeling so overwhelmed. Maybe you are feeling unsure about the direction of your work and branding of your business.

I bet you wonder if you need to revamp your line, move in a new direction or simply where to start? You know you want to "take it to the next level" but what does that even mean?

If this sounds like you, then here's a question for you:

Are you ready to make your future different?

If your answer is YES – then I have amazing news for you!

Finally, you can take part in a program created EXPRESSLY for artists BY an artist!

That means everything will be presented in a way that you'll actually understand.

Together you and I will build your profits, and help you create a renewed sense of passion and pleasure for the business of your art!

Hey, I've been where you are now. I understand the life of an artist. I understand YOU.

And I want to tell you: You really can let go of the stuff you weren't meant to be doing.

You really CAN learn to market yourself and your work to bring in LOTS more money. And YES, you can finally let go of the panic around money and business.

When I met Tonya Davidson in 2005, I was immediately drawn to her. I have always felt Tonya is very trustworthy, professional and has high integrity – that means a lot to me. She is also a very knowledgeable, giving, and supportive teacher and mentor.

Fast-forwarding, I had been creating and selling my designs for over 5 years; yet as a businesswoman I always felt like I was stumbling around in the dark.

Tonya's guidance has been like finding my flashlight.

The Artful Success Program came into my life at a critical time for me. Over the previous 2 years, there were changes in my personal life that interrupted my creativity and stalled my jewelry business goals.

Just as I was ready to give up, the Artful Success program was announced. I was so excited I could hardly stand it.  I immediately signed up and waited anxiously to begin.

Tonya's program provided practical tools that have given me focus and clarity. Since the calls, videos, and worksheets are downloadable, I can easily review at my convenience. I am so grateful for her sharing and her knowledge. Tonya teaches you to work smarter – not harder.

Within the first few sessions, I was feeling changes and seeing results.

Six months after starting the program, I had doubled my gross sales and production from the previous year.  This was the best investment in my business I have made to date.

Tonya, thank you for making the Artful Success program so fabulous and memorable!

"You Can Finally Let Go of the Panic Around Money and Business."

I was a struggling artist. I was also a struggling retail store owner (pretty much, I was just "struggling!").

Very, very slowly I discovered the exact steps to turn that around. Through years of trial and error, I've learned how to do business differently to actually make money.

I turned it all around and made my business wildly successful.  I've consistently made seven figures the last six years because of the strategies I have implemented and blueprint I follow.

Once this started happening, artists kept asking me how I did it – and how they can do it.

I realized how much I loved to help artists succeed. And the bottom line is that I feel a deep desire (almost a duty!) to serve others by sharing my knowledge and experiences.

So I've taken my in-the-trenches experience (trade shows to galleries to online sales), my college degrees, and all the coaching, educational and marketing programs I've attended, and combined them into an actual program EXCLUSIVELY FOR ARTISTS.

I designed this step-by-step, easy to follow, program, just for artists, to share with you how clarity, marketing and foundational systems can turn anything around making even the smallest business profitable.

Not long after I had decided to leave my day job to start my own jewelry business, I received notice of a new program, Artful Success, being offered by Tonya Davidson. I hesitated to sign up at first, but decided it would be a worthwhile investment. Am I glad I did!

This program literally walked me through setting up my own business – from setting goals to building good habits to pricing work to website design and use of social media to engage customers. Tonya includes great practical tools to bring focus and clarity, and to help us plan and assess. She is a very caring and giving mentor, and has valuable insight stemming from her own experience as a successful business owner.

Just a few weeks after launching my website, I made my first sale! Within a few short months of completing the Artful Success program, I had established my business and was filling orders for my work. I'm looking forward to increased productivity and sales this year as I continue with the foundations I learned from Tonya!
