Great Ideas

I am more than happy to announce that Branded Licensing is now representing my artwork and brand! Founded by Melissa Schulz, Branded is an agency that fosters the development of a strong stratgeic plan in growing and marketing licensed artists. That is basically a fancy way of saying that they help artists get organized and focused as we make artwork (and, oh, some of us really need it!). :) I began working with Melissa in 2016. We've talked and planned, and I've studied and focused, and we have had a really nice time working together.

I thought about trying to find an agent or agency when I began developing my portfolio in earnest in 2012. It wasn't until I met Melissa that I found a person who offers the kind of collaboration and breadth of experience that made me feel both at home with my natural artistic expression and encouraged about my vision for the artwork.

I am thrilled to be working Melissa! If you are unfamiliar with her, check her out on Facebook, at her website, or at Art Licensing Below you can read a bit about Melissa and her varied and interesting career.
