In this episode, I talk to Maria Brophy. She’s one part of an art business couple that sells and licenses art all over the world.
1:30 Maria talks about her corporate background and how she and Drew started doing business together, and how working together happens.
11:00 – Maria talks about the mindset necessary to be a successful artist. Having policies, getting paid up front, and using contracts are necessities. Shoot for having a profit.
17:45 – Maria’s magic words for getting payment up front: “This is how I work.”
20:30 – I ask Maria how they balance selling original work with selling licenses. Some really interesting bits about how Drew separates his creative work and business work.
