I HELP ARTISTS, AUTHORS, AND CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURS ESTABLISH THEIR BUSINESS SO THAT THEY THRIVE DOING WHAT THEY LOVE
A MOTIVATIONAL STORYTELLER ARTISTS, WRITERS, CREATIVES’ BEST ALLIED COMMITTED TO HELP YOU SUCCEED INSPIRED TO SHARE YOUR MESSAGE TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE!
I’m a Colombo-American, ARTpreneur, and unstoppable manifestor with over twenty-five years of experience helping others establish their creative business.
I was born in Colombia, moved to New York at an early age, and after spending over thirty years in the USA, I married a handsome Italian and lived in Italy for over a decade. I now split my time between New York, Florence, and Ferrara.
And I sneak for a vacation to Colombia any opportunity I get. During my journey I experienced my worst moment when I became homeless and had to face the loneliness of being an immigrant women and single mom of two in a foreign country. My fighting spirit kept me going and I was able to rise and create a success story that my children can share with the next generations.
WHAT IGNITED MY PASSION FOR HELPING YOU
After a difficult childhood, I developed a belief system that kept me from fulfilling my dreams and reaching my goals. I didn’t dare to dream too big, At twelve years old, I discover in art a new universe. Art was a crucial element in my healing journey. Art had such a positive impact on my life that I want to do the same for others.
That’s why I’m committed to helping artists, writers, and creative entrepreneurs share their messages so that they can impact the world. Because I believe your message is essential and needed to raise our collective consciousness.
I help entrepreneurs like you establish their businesses, expand their careers, and thrive doing what they love.
So I guide my clients through coaching mentoring, and provide Marketing, Strategies Advertising, and PR Campaigns and services with my team.
I worked as an independent artist/curator for over ten years. Then, I created my first art organization Vivid Arts Network, helping artist showcase their art in the international market and created a family of artists that now expands to over 180 countries.
In 2011, my partner Alan Grimandi and I created ArtTour International. This revolutionary multimedia platform comprises a quarterly art magazine, two annual publications, a TV show, a podcast, and a PR agency. Our organization leads the market with over 2 million readers in more than 180 countries.
ATIM TV Show
In 2012 we launched the TV show “Arttour International,” which airs every Thursday at 5:30 in Spectrum 1993 in NYC. With my platforms and a network that expands to thousands of artists, galleries, and art organizations, I help artists establish themselves, get international recognition and sell their works.
The Winner's Journey
In 2021 I launched my Podcast, The Winner’s Journey, where I feature entrepreneurs like you who wish to share their stories to inspire others.
I live an exciting family life, married for twelve years to my love and partner Alan Grimandi; we share the same passion for art, culture, and travel and have three home bases, Italy, Colombia, and the USA.
As a single mom, I raised two children who are now adults, and now I have a granddaughter; they feel my life with joy. My daily routine includes a work schedule that adapts to family life, not the other way around.
My family extends around the globe with my amazing family of artists and creatives, they keep me inspired and always going.
My biggest dream? To help as many as possible discover the field of endless possibilities and open their eyes to their greatness.
When you put discipline, intention, faith, and the right mindset together, you create a life where everything is possible. I’d love to help you grow, expand and create the life and business that you dream and deserve. Feel free to send me a note!
I believe in art as vehicle to raise global consciousness.
Art is my drug of choice.
Helping others share their art is helping humanity evolve and advance.
