About Barney

About Me.

I love coffee, dogs, anything mint, and a good joke. My beautiful wife, Mary, is my best friend. For more than 30 years, I've had the honor and pleasure of helping artists and creative entrepreneurs develop marketing plans and strategies.

The Journey

My journey has taken me from art business advertising exec, to author, blogger, art marketing expert, community builder, and a course creator. The constant is it is all aimed at finding the best ways to help artists live joyful, productive lives.

The Path 

My way is to teach visual artists how to market their art in ways that align with their values and needs. That's living the dream, except it's not a dream if you are living it. 

My Why

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
