MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR

Hi friend, Vicky here!

As an artist with nearly 25 years of professional experience, I understand how vulnerable it feels to pitch your artistic talent. Art is both deeply personal and moves the masses— which is why I’m on a mission to ensure your beautiful work doesn’t remain tucked away in the cloud for no one to see or experience.

I also understand how impactful it is to your business’s bottom line when you have a secondary income stream.

My learnings from more than two decades of successful and long-standing licensing partnerships are shared within The Art Licensing Lab.


You just have to bring your talent, work ethic, and willingness to put yourself out there. So tell me, are you ready to experience more fruitful & rewarding creative endeavors?

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE ME TO COMPLETE THE COURSE?

This is a self-paced course you can work through at whatever pace you choose.

With that said, the course content plus the prep work required before pitching partners should take approximately 6-8 hours to complete.

DO YOU OFFER REFUNDS OR GUARANTEES FOR THE COURSE?

Because this is an online, educational course that requires students to put their learnings into action, I don’t offer refunds or guarantees. However, I’m confident that if you commit to the course and the outlined next steps, you’ll be set up for success as you enter the world of art licensing!

I’M JUST STARTING OUT AS AN ARTIST - AM I READY FOR A COURSE LIKE THIS?

Absolutely! As long as you’re excited about the opportunity to license your artwork now or in the future, this course will be an empowering educational tool as you’re building your creative business.

WILL I HAVE ACCESS TO VICKY AS I WORK THROUGH THE CONTENT?

I lead you through each pre-recorded video lesson, but you will not have live access to me as you work through the course. I love meeting fellow artists and invite you to send me an email to connect and/or ask any questions you may have along the way!

DOES THIS COURSE COVER PORTFOLIO CREATION?

This course covers how to curate a portfolio that attracts your ideal partners but does not dive deep into the process of creating a portfolio from scratch.

WHAT ARE VICKY’S CREDENTIALS?

I’m a self-taught artist with nearly 25 years of professional experience, thousands of designs licensed, and millions of dollars in products sold. The knowledge I share in this course was born from my decades working in this industry and my ability to remain relevant and in step with the ever-changing world of visual art!

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY ARTISTIC STYLE IS RIGHT FOR LISENCING?

Many artists worry their art won’t “fit” in the licensing world, but that’s not the case! There are opportunities for licensing with a variety of partners who welcome diverse styles of art and artists.

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?


At this time, The Art Licensing Lab can only be purchased in full for $199. If you have questions regarding payments or purchasing, feel free to reach out!


Longevity as an artist is much more likely when you don’t have to rely 100% on one-off commissions

IF I COULD GIVE YOU ONE PIECE OF ADVICE, IT WOULD BE THIS:

I know you feel stuck with deadlines and worry about finding the time to work through this course, let alone pitch yourself to partners, but have you considered what waiting to license your work could cost you?

Once you land your first licensing partner, you’ll soon have more flexibility to balance the cash flow of your business.

Your greatest currency is time, and a lucrative licensing deal provides the guaranteed revenue you need to confidently give yourself the space to simply create.
