How do you turn your creativity into a meaningful profession?  

My name is Sonja Smalheer. I am an artist, art coach and course creator and I'd love to show you how.

When I graduated from the Art Academy I learnt how to paint, and how to draw but I had no idea how to earn a living with my creativity. 

I was not prepared for a life as a working artist.

This often left me quite frustrated. Sometimes on the verge of calling it quits, throwing away my brushes and giving it all up. But I am so glad I didn’t.

After many failed attempts and valuable lessons learnt,  I discovered ways to turn my creative dream, of being a working artist, into a reality, now giving me the freedom to live the life I love.

I created the Help! I Am Artist Podcast, because no matter where you are on your creative journey, whether you are just starting out or maybe you have been a working artist for a while, you too can take steps to turn your creative passions into a meaningful sustainable profession. 

The Help! I Am Artist Podcast is filled with fresh inspiration, step by step practical insights and interviews with artists who are experts in their field.

If you are a smart artist or one in the making, who is looking for new and exciting ways to get your art out of your studio and into the hands of an audience that's appreciative and willing to pay it’s worth, then you are in the right place.

Happy Listening!
