Making art can be deeply personal but we also need to show it off if we want our work to be seen, desired and collected.
Many artists find the idea of self-promotion hard - if that's you, you're certainly not alone! It can feel exposing, pushy, or just damn confusing...
It's time to step up and get your posts working so that you can be seen!
Understanding how you approach "showing up and sharing" can be the ONE thing which makes a huge difference for getting your art seen in the world.
But we needed to make changes which actually make a difference.
'Time to Shine' helps you face what's holding you back (hint: it’s not what button to press next) AND re-invigorates your relationship with social media. Practical lessons to change how you feel - so you can enjoy with new confidence.

"The confidence I’ve gained from this course is simply life changing. Really surprised how excited I got making these posts, learning the new tech, writing them, and sharing them. I felt a real sense of accomplishment."
"..forever changed my perception of being visible online.
I better understand my own motivations, identified what I like and established my rules, so I feel more comfortable with my boundaries. This has boosted my confidence and I am certain this will go beyond the virtual world and impact how I present myself in person, too, which is so exciting!"
Kate Rose Johnson
"This course was outstanding. It was packed with content that was delivered in a thoughtful way so as not to be overwhelming. There was a perfect balance of introspection/reflection and “nuts and bolts” type information which will allow for more lasting change and growth over time. I am so very glad I joined!"

How much time will I need?
I’m fairly confident on social media, is this for me?
Do I have to be on live calls?
Will this answer all my tech questions?
Can I get a refund?
How long do I have access for?
Is this a course on Instagram?
I’m not on Facebook, can I do this?
I’m busy now, I’ll wait and do this later
"Before, I was very tentative and my posts were boring... I wanted some inspiration and during Time to Shine I got my highest number of likes and comments ever”
“I used to feel like I didn't know enough to share or people would think 'who is she?' I couldn’t show up live or on video because I was too nervous. Time to Shine helped me to reframe those beliefs and made it easy for me. In fact now I look forward to when I can share next!"
“I felt stuck especially with video, but the tips made me more confident. Now my writing has improved, engagement is up as is my audience growth.”
Karina Jane Buckingham
"I did the challenge when you first ran it and loved it!
I felt stuck and kept wondering why people would want to listen to me. The challenge helped me realise that my way of looking at the world was unique in itself and made me realize how I was comfortable sharing.
Helped build my audience to 4500 followers and I sold 10 out of the 12 pieces I made for my last collection. I am working on 5 commissions this year
I still don't do video or audio and it's ok!
PS - I even saw the green van :-)"
This ISN'T about a cookie-cutter template, but IS about finding a way which suits you.
Am I going to push you a little?
Yep - that’s what you’re here for!
But it will be butterflies-of-excitement-I-did-it-challenging, not hide-under-a-rock-I-hate-this challenging!
OK - I'm ready...
Who am I?
Hi, I'm Alice Sheridan. I'm an artist, just like you, not a marketing guru. But I've found the key to "marketing" with more ease happens when you find a way which feels true and honest.
What's worked for me will not be the same for you. Finding a way which feels joyful means you will stop stressing and relax into your path as an artist.
If you told me I'd host a podcast with over 2 million downloads I never would have believed you - but it started with short livestreams.. we never know where things will lead until we start!
I'd love you to find the same sense of creative experimentation... come and get a kickstart of fresh energy!
