Services for artists.
Hi there! That's me, Barney Davey.
I help artists follow their path to success in the art business and encourage them to live their best artist's life because they go better together... by a lot.
The grand vision is to make the world a little better by inspiring artists to live their dreams and share their art with humanity. I believe enabling artists to live in harmony with the creative life they choose is alchemy. — Barney Davey
How to market art is a challenge. You'll find help here.
There are no one-size-fits-all solutions for art marketing success. Whatever you do must work for you. Your goals, dreams, and aspirations are unique and your art marketing strategy must be too. Please explore this page to learn how you can use my expertise to help you reach your goals.
Looking at how I advocate for artists is a quick way to get to know me.
- Art Marketing News is my free blog, published weekly since 2005.
- A worldwide community of artists get weekly training with live meetings from me in the Art Marketing Toolkit Project. It is priced at $4.99 per month to leave no artist behind.
- I help artists decide what they need and want and how to live their dreams accordingly, and to democratize access to art marketing information and advice by making affordable for all.
Here are the byproducts from 30 years of helping artists market their work.
Can You Use My Help?
Everybody needs help sorting things our sometimes. I'm a good listener with decades of art business experience. You will get honest compassionate advice when you talk to me.
Let's create success.
The best success is measured on a level higher than money and sales. A good understanding of the art business and applying a few marketing methods makes sales come easier.
If artists want their work in the world, they must do business. We work together on boosting your business and provide encouragement and suggestions on the best ways to enjoy the life of an artist.

Art Marketing Toolkit (AMTP)
Weekly live sessions on art marketing. Every other week, members receive a PDF with extensive details on a marketing topic. We talk about the content in the Friday live Zoom session. Here is what a new member said in the private Facebook discussion group:
"I have a lot to learn. I won't be able to attend the live Zoom meetings, so I am just going to start at the beginning and work my way through. But $4.99 is an insane price for this, thank you, Mr. Davey."
I'm not too humble to agree that she's right. The Art Marketing Toolkit is the best deal on the planet for artists who want to know how to get their work to market and the art business. It's casual, super helpful, and incredibly supportive. A great group of humans and artists are the group's members.
I intend to help visual artists lead well-lived, joyful artist’s lives.
The AMTP emphasizes creating harmony between family, finances, career demands, and artistic desires. We believe you can have it all just not all at once. We teach artists all their marketing options and how to choose and plan to use them.
I’m not trying to compete with anyone else. I’m very much at peace with selling access to my information at the giveaway price of $4.99 per month with no contract for two reasons:
- I believe gaining access to world-class marketing training should not be expensive.
- I believe I can do the most good by applying the philosophy of no artists left behind.
Those are my guiding principles in creating the Art Marketing Toolkit Project (AMTP). I can attest it feels like the birdcage opened when I made this decision. I’m free to help artists in the best way I can without worrying what others think about my pricing, training, or anything else. That's the best life I can live as an artist's advocate.
is a game-changer.
I offer several options for using my coaching. I want to help you "Live Your Best Artist's Life." I believe there is a state of grace, a peace of mind that comes from living the artist's life as one defines it.
Setting and achieving goals is how you make dreams come true. I'm here to encourage your best self, to help you set goals, and get things done. My coaching one-on-one coaching s flexible and ala carte. You can use it as much or little as you need.

One of the most consistent requests I get from artists is to provide one-on-one marketing services. To help with that need, I've developed a Done-for-You Art Marketing Services package.

That leaves them little time to develop a comprehensive package of marketing assets along with a strategy to deploy them.
Your marketing messages must be noticeable to get attention. Creating a cohesive plan that complements your message and enhances your brand is how to get the most from your investment in marketing your art.
