Currently I'm offering phone consulting on all aspects of art licensing, greeting card and other product designing and manufacturing. I also do contract reads, redline comments and reviews via email. After attending the Memphis College of Art, owning my own art gallery and 3 plus years as an Artist for Hallmark Cards, I've been a freelance illustrator, designer and art licensor since 1987, doing workshops, consulting and contract reviews since 2000. Several of the Art Licensing events I've spoken at are listed below. I exhibited in Surtex for 11 years and the Licensing Show for 3 years and have coached tons of people to do the shows and license their art too. If you need consulting via phone or contract reviews via email I'm available Monday- Friday 10-5:00 and some evenings and weekends. Thanks!!!
Best to you,
