The Connected Artist membership
the membership for artists who are ready to step into their best creative future
With weekly live calls giving you ongoing support (not just for a few weeks) let the Artist Path guide you through a treasure trove of essential lessons so you’ll always have access to just what you need next.
You want to keep developing as an artist...
in a way which feels genuine and sustainable.
The problem is you're overwhelmed about what to do next... I get it because I've been there...
Wondering how to find buyers who connect with your work?
Worried that the business side of art will drain all the enjoyment from it?
Confused about where you should be putting your attention?
3 key things you need to grow a sustainable art practice...
Nurture your soulful self
YOU are at the core of this more than in any other business, and it needs to feel right.
This isn't like a regular business course. We take a holistic view to ensure that when you feel good, you can tackle anything!
Yes! even that dreaded tech thing you've been putting off
Build a strong studio habit
Because actually making your work is essential.
Track your studio progress and reflect on your work so you can continue to grow as an artist in your own unique style.
While this isn't a how-to-make-art (because all the artists inside are different) it's essential to understand how you work best.
Have supportive systems
The membership gives you the structure you need, to make the sales you want.
How to use social media naturally to grow your audience, build a reassuring and convincing website, set intentions so you finally feel organised.
Don't waste time thinking about what next - get things done that make a difference.

Robin knew she wanted to establish herself as a professional artist, and the membership helped her realise one thing which has changed everything....
"beyond my wildest dreams"
this is a great fit for you if...
you want to join a group of interesting and committed artists
you're proactive and keen to learn
you want to develop your art and share it with the world
you know this is a long term plan
this might not be right if...
you want direct tuition on how to actually paint
you have no desire to share or sell your work
you're only just starting out creating (we're all still learning but to make the most of this you need some experience)
When she joined, Gill was changing direction and wanting support in her new artist role. After just a few months she had a growing following and experience of showing her work.
(she's now graduated with flying success and the gallery representation she wanted)
"brilliant advice and a clear pathway"
The Hub is really informative, lots of brilliant advice and a clear pathway. I originally planned to nip in, take what I needed and leave, there’s so much in there and so much more to the membership that obviously I’ve stuck around!
"the biggest progress is my mindset"
Initially I used the Club to structure improvements to my online presence and business practices using the hub. But now I believe that the biggest progress for me is mindset. Seeing and “being with” others who are doing this has shifted some of my old attitudes and excuses.
"I've uplevelled - it's a weight off my mind"
I can see the value in what I am creating and offering to others, this has helped a lot with sales - I had my largest amount of sales last month! I've also up-levelled my admin and business side which is a weight off of my mind.
"Alice has an uncanny ability to know just what we need. The calls always give me ideas I can use. I wouldn't be without this wonderful group"
"I was worried it may be too busy but it's the personal connections which have surprised me, and I've found real value in the friendships and the community"
See what happened when Kirsty followed her passion...
She found not just practical help but courage and community.
"it would have taken me twice or three times as long. Worth every penny"
We're always looking for ways to support YOUR artist path...
- Jo McCarthy joined at the start of the year as a business mentor with practical sessions to help improve your online offers
- We've recently had a focus on mailing lists. You can't rely on social media so we looked at ideas for getting more sign-ups and what to actually send people. (how's your List Love?)
- Love the guest calls; recently we've covered Licensing your art images and two essential Money Mindset workshops.
Welcome to your club!
I'm Alice Sheridan, as a professional artist I've been showing and selling my art for over a decade. I started from home but things have changed in that time, and I now work from my studio in London.
My work sells worldwide and has been licensed and used in high end interior shoots and magazines.
You may know me as the co-host of the #1 Art Juice podcast and within this membership I've also guided hundreds of artists as they create a life around making art.
We started small but it's grown in to a very special place to be. I hope you'll consider joining us!
It was only when I really decided to commit to my art practice that things changed. I didn't want to wake up one day and wonder "what if?"
Take a look inside the Hub
Just one part of your membership; your 'artist library' of reference and help
I've done the google searching over the years, but the hub is a clear route to fine tune and assess, decide what's the focus and next steps without all the baffle gab I've found so confoundingly mind bending elsewhere."
I'm a beginner, is it too soon for me?
I already do quite well with my art... what's in it for me?
Is it a set programme?
Will I get personal attention?
But I only want to paint! Is this for me?
How long do I have to stay for?
The price is in £ - is it only for UK people?
What time are the Live calls?
The time isn’t right for me, do I have to join now?
Rather watch? Check this live Q&A where I answered more questions you had about joining (this is a longer one!)
What? .... Still considering?
(I always read right to the end too!)
This sums up what the group is: a mix of work and laughter. I hope we will be welcoming you soon. x
I wanted to be amongst like minded artists and needed some practical information about the business side of things, a periodic kick up the backside and to see evidence that ‘this’ really can work! I'm more confident and steadfast about pursuing my goals; I've recently sold the largest painting I've ever made.
Sarah de Mattos
Well that was an interesting day... 2 venues, 3 paintings sold!! That's 6 in six weeks and my new garden studio paid for. Thank you Alice for supporting us on this amazing journey. x
The thing I love most is being able to see behind the scenes of other artists lives. I feel a lot of the mystery has been lifted and it makes me less impatient and more confident with where I am right now. Having people ahead of me helps me see what's possible and how to achieve what I hope for.
I LOVE THIS GROUP!
NOTE: The personal feel is what members know is special and we are learning together to trust our personal instinct, not follow a set blueprint. If you ready to join the Connected 'family' then go ahead and join above. I can't wait to welcome you to the club!
