Artist Statement Journaling E-Book

Gather The Right Words To Help You Sell Your Art


Does the thought of writing about your art strike fear in your soul?
Do you tremble at the thought of talking to someone about your art?
Do you have a new body of work that you have yet to articulate? Or do you just want to be able to do these things better than you have in the past?



Stop putting off your statement.

Clear, meaningful language can help you connect with viewers and sell your work.

I know. You’re an artist, not a writer. I’ve heard it all before.

That’s still no reason not to articulate your work so that you can connect with more people.

Your statement is an opportunity to define yourself before someone else does it for you. It is a chance to assert, with facts and with clarity, the current direction of your work.

This is a 20-day journaling journey for writing your artist statement.


When you have completed all of the exercises, you will:

1. Have a new, written artist statement.
2. Be able to better articulate your work to anyone, anywhere at the drop of a hat.
3. Feel good that, through self-discipline and devotion to bettering your career, you have a genuine sense of accomplishment.


This process is for:

  • Artists who want to articulate a body of work.
  • Artists who want to learn to journal about their artwork while making it.
  • Artists who are preparing for an upcoming presentation or gallery talk about their work.

I want to help you talk, write, and think more clearly about your work so that you can make it meaningful to gallery dealers, curators, arts writers, and collectors, as well as to people who may not know anything about art. I want it to be more meaningful to you, too.

Your statement is for a greater purpose than just words on a piece of paper. You will develop a method of putting your thoughts together in language you can use again and again. You ‘ll need the right language for the following.
