The Artist's Guide

LMCC hosted a book signing and talk with Jackie Battenfield last night, author of the newly released The Artist's Guide: How to Make a Living Doing What You Love. I had the opportunity to hear Jackie speak at a seminar for the Queens Council on the Arts last year and found it not only informative but very inspirational and have been anxiously awaiting her book. Last night was no different. Jackie read from her book and speaks from her heart and that is what makes her message resonate. She weaves the voice of motivational speaker, teacher, professional, mother and fellow artist with real world information and tough-love advice. This book is an invaluable tool for artists everywhere. Click HERE to go to the website and buy the book.

Amazing book and I want to cop it since I think it applies to creative souls in general. Thanks so much for sharing it with me and all your readers! Looking forward to your formal LMCC studio visits.
