Jason O'Gorman - Creative Business Advice Intensive
"Sheelah provided me with some extremely insightful and valuable direction during our brief one to one meeting. Speaking to Sheelah I found she is very attentive and exceptionally knowledgeable about the art industry - be it fine art or digital art, Sheelah has a remarkably solid understanding of the business of art. I would recommend anyone looking to pursue an art career, or looking for a nudge in the right direction, to have a chat with Sheelah. Her advice is invaluable"
Audrey Cantillon - Mentoring
"Working with Sheelah has given me a real confidence boost. In a gentle way, she showed me where I had made mistakes with my strategy and followed that up with very constructive advice. She helped me better understand strategies for selling art and has given me amazing advise on how to prepare for an exhibition, how to write an artist statement, and how to structure my time / calendar / planning / commissions."
LB - Selling Art In Ireland Course
"I would highly recommend this course to any artist who wants some practical down to earth advice and guidance on how to sell and promote their work. Sheelah has many years experience in the art world provides a wonderful resource in supporting artists, whether they are just out of college or, like myself, want to reboot their focus and energy for the road ahead. The knowledge and insight I have gained in doing this course has given me a fresh perspective and some valuable tools on how to target the correct audience for my work"
Anne Marie Savage - Website Audit Check
"Life as an artist can be quite a solitary one and with that comes a very singular and one sided opinion of their works and their career. Sometimes you feel quite blinkered, as I did with my website and working with Sheelah was a breath of fresh air as she was able to look at my website with a professional, experienced and constructive view. What I really wanted was for my website was to have an accessible customer 'feel' but still retain an artistic aesthetic and that is what Sheelah was able to provide that I definitely could not!"
