"I’m so happy I chose to work with The Artist’s Concierge on my website design. Thea was attentive, prompt and efficient throughout the process. She listened to my ideas and concerns and gave me expert advice on how to achieve the presentation I desired. My website is clean, contemporary and easy to navigate. My content represents me. I have a fabulous marketing product I’m proud of and I receive compliments on. Hands down the best business decision I could have made. Thea knows how to market artists and their art."

"I knew I had met Thea for a reason. The first time we spoke, she immediately put me at ease. As an emerging artist and new entrepreneur, Arts Lead has become a guiding force for approaching my work, running my business, and taking care of myself as a creative person. Thea's method isn't one size fits all. Each artist in the program is uniquely different, and she takes the time to get to know every person & their art on a devoted level.
I implicitly trust Thea's opinion and perspective, and I take her feedback to heart. Thea has helped me establish confidence as a newer artist, but not only that, she's helped me build a brand for my thriving art business and helped to cultivate my creativity. Thea brings inspiring insights, a keen perspective on what it means to be authentic, and encourages us to create the work we want to make. I am so grateful to have met her and met the community of artists who participate in Arts Lead. We all bring a unique perspective, and we all openly share ideas, best practices, and more. It's been one of the best investments I've made as a new business owner."

"While Thea shares tools and experiences to help with your creative business, she does not take a "one size fits all" approach. Rather, she spends time early in the program getting to know you, your work, and your goals, customizing her collaboration with you for the remainder of your time together. Using principles based on Carl Jung's archetypes, you'll begin to understand your "authentic self" and how not only to manifest it in your art, but in your daily life. My creative practice feels sustainable and life giving in bold, new ways. My portfolio site is clean and organized, I've made new contacts, and I have systems for my social media that not just promote my work, but add to its meaning. Thea rocks!"

"I signed up for the Arts Lead program last summer (2019) and it was an awesome decision. Thea helped me to plan and organize for an artist residency, she helped me with writing and being clear about my story, and she helped me realize the value of great photos, and staying engaged with the community even when I want to keep my head down and work. I recommend hiring Thea for Arts Lead- you will not regret it! She is also excellent at website design- and is redesigning my site as I write. She is available to hire hourly, so if you need help with individual tasks, she’s available in that fashion too. We are lucky to have Thea in the triangle!"
