1:1 CREATIVE MENTORING session with Jenny (in person or via Zoom)



A mentoring session will usually last an hour, but could be longer by arrangement. Creative mentoring can focus on your actual creative work and direction, elements of professional practice, or a combination of the two.

I have worked for several organisations (including AMTIS and The Cultural Enterprise in Glasgow) delivering Professional Development Training for artists on different areas of practice, including pricing your artwork, writing statements, applying for funding, working with Galleries, organising an exhibition of your work, submitting to group shows etc. I have a lot of practical experience in these areas, which I can share with you, and there are certain industry acknowledged do’s and don’ts that it can be helpful to know about.

What I have found particularly fruitful in mentoring is combining the above with tuning into an individual artist or writer’s practice or areas of interest and from that place jointly co-creating exactly the right road map for your professional development. It’s not a one size fits all and fine-tuning information and advice to fit into your individual circumstances is what makes being mentored so much more enriching and effective than reading a book on professional practice. I have over 20 years experience of training and mentoring artists both individually and in groups.

We can also look at creative blocks, work life balance, changing direction and absorbing life changes, if that is appropriate for you. In the past, I have sometimes also included an Astrological Chart Reading and working with Dreams in this work, if this feels appropriate.

Cost: £45 an hour (Concessionary rates available for those on low income or unwaged). A discount is available if you book 4 or more sessions. Please ask for details. Everything shared is fully confidential.

I work in person, on Zoom, or a combination of the two. Please feel free to contact me to arrange  a free no obligation 20 mins conversation to chat more and see if we might be a good fit.
