I’d Rather Be in the Studio:
The Artist’s No-Excuse Guide to Self-Promotion
– 3rd edition
(now with even more tools to master today’s marketing landscape!)

If you’re ready to get past the excuses you’ve been making for your lack of success …

If you’re ready to get out of the studio and take charge …

If you are tired of seeing other artists succeed while you struggle to get showings …

If you’ve been looking for a better way to market your work (but think you’re terrible at marketing) …

Then you need the latest edition of I’d Rather be in the Studio
(affectionately known as IRBITS by artists who love it!).

It’s packed with practical, proven advice to help you sell more art and build an art career that lasts.

I know it works. I’m Alyson Stanfield and for more than sixteen years I’ve been coaching artists. I’ve listened to what YOU need – and combined that with the same strategies I used to build Art Biz Coach and help hundreds of artists grow their business.

Need more proof that this book will change your art business for the better?

Professors at art schools and universities regularly include I’d Rather be in the Studio in their required reading lists – that’s how effective it is!

What's Inside the Book

If you’ve ever said:

  • I don’t want to waste time marketing when I’d rather be in the studio.
  • I don’t have enough hours in a day to make art and grow a business.
  • I don’t need an artist statement – my work speaks for itself.
  • I’m an artist, I don’t have a head for business.
  • I don’t have anything interesting to say and don’t want to bother anyone.
  • I’m an introvert NOT a pushy salesperson.

Your excuses are holding you back – it’s time to ditch them!

I’d Rather be in the Studio takes all of those excuses (and more) and gives you actionable steps to finally say goodbye to each and every one – and HELLO to success!
