A Few Comments From Artists
“Renée Phillips is not only incredibly knowledgeable in her field of expertise, she is also life changing in the direction of my art career. She helped me establish my creative goals, career goals and financial goals and expanded the horizon in all directions of what is possible for me as an artist. She truly cares for the growth of each artist in a realistic, objective and achievable way. Renée is a superb mentor!” ~ Denisa Prochazka
“I worked with Renée Phillips for three coaching sessions. It was great to have Renée review my website, social media, e-news, correspondence and goals. She had incredibly helpful suggestions. Each session I walked away with a practical to-do list that I could see would help me toward my goal of creating a sustainable full-time artistic career. She was generous with information and I could tell she really thought about my work, goals and me when suggesting potential avenues for me to explore. Probably the most important piece I gained was the “people power list” which I’m putting in to action now. I would highly recommend Renee as a coach. She was easy to work with and kept me moving, which is exactly what I wanted and needed.” ~ Melissa Dorn Richards
“Thank you for your discussion concerning my artwork during New York Foundation For The Arts “Doctor’s Hours”. After our meeting I am even more eager to work on getting my artwork into galleries. You gave me direction and ideas for making a professional presentation, places to send my work to, and validation that my work is cohesive enough to start contacting galleries.” ~ Nisha D.
“Renée’s infectious enthusiasm and wise, caring guidance have given me a greater sense of clarity in both the creative and marketing aspects of my business. My husband and friends have commented on how much more focused and happy I am since working with Renee. A more inspiring coach would be hard to find!” ~ Ellen Joseph
“Renée, it was our absolute pleasure to be coached by you. Your advice, guidance and integrity surpassed all our expectations. You showered your expertise with warmth and a deep sense of responsibility. We recommend your services to all artists who seriously desire advancement in their career.” ~ Frantisek Strouhal and Chantal Robert
