Art Ambassador Gwenda Joyce wants to help you get the success you deserve. Hear what her clients are saying about working with her…
During our phone coaching sessions, Gwenda's decades of art world experience shined through with the abundant knowledge she had at the ready to share with me. Her knowledge on how to approach galleries ranged from the big picture to small detail, the process to product. I found it all quite revelatory and inspiring, plus she is so easy to work with.
Gwenda gently guided me to dig deep to discover the true meaning of my work. It was an exciting and fulfilling process and a foundation for more discoveries. In my session we discussed everything from talking about my art to why I paint abstract art. I went from "I can't do this" to deepening my relationship with my art and my understanding of my paintings.
In Gwenda’s seminar I learned a tremendous amount, both from the gallery point of view, but more importantly, about my own work. I discovered things about my work and where it’s going! Gwenda is extremely knowledgeable, and willing to share it. What I learned was worth far more than I paid for.
Working with Gwenda has been a 'win-win-win' all around. Gwenda's enthusiasm and vision are inspiring. Things keep coming at me out of the blue - writers wanting to write about my work, being featured online. I'm working with a gallery now. I'm loving everything that's going on. Gwenda brings so much intelligence and positive energy to it. Her energy and enthusiam fuels me so much. I just want to hide in the studio and create-create-create!
Working with Gwenda was really helpful and clarified so many things. She has great suggestions that changed my feelings about galleries and my career completely.

Gwenda and I had worked together on some charitable projects in the past, and following that she brought my work to the attention of some serious collectors who had both the interest and the money to close a deal. Later she was able to connect me to a gallery that I had sent work to on a couple of different occasions, without a response. I’m not sure what she did that I didn’t know how to do, but the gallery became very interested and ultimately took about 15 paintings for exhibition. They sold two of them right away. Gwenda is sincere, direct, and honest; very easy to work with!
When I signed on with Gwenda I signed a huge sigh or relief. I knew I was in the right place. Gwenda got me representation with not one, but two galleries.
My future looks so different now than it did a year ago.
Gwenda’s unique way of Coaching helped me discover why I make art the way I do. We explored my process and I am recognizing my true contribution. This was a huge revelation, and now I ‘own ‘ it. I am more confident in making my proposals, and I am currently negotiation a really big project. Everything has shifted in the direction I want it to go.
I graduated from a top art school and have been making art for years. Before working with Gwenda, I was making paintings on panels leftover from another artist. I traded paintings with my friends instead of selling them. Gwenda helped me focus on creating a series of paintings around one idea. I created 7 new works, we revised my resume and re-wrote my artist’s statement, then I started submitting the work for exhibition. I got a one-person show in less than 3 months. Working in a series has given me a whole new way of thinking about my work. I am making the work I want to and getting it exhibited. I just sold my first piece in this series yesterday.
I have been involved in public art for a number of years, and now I’m getting back into my own personal work. My conversations with Gwenda have been really rich, and she has really affirmed some things for me and helped me get clear on a direction. I have started a whole new body of work and Gwenda has helped me clarify where I want to go.

What impressed me about Gwenda is her passion for art. Gwenda and I met when she came in to see an exhibit I had at a regional museum where I was doing a lecture and demo. We stayed in touch, and I invited her to my studio. She is so knowledgeable and thoughtful. She invited me to exhibit in a special exhibit in a public space. I was really glad to add it to my resume, and the extra exposure gave me access to a completely new audience.
The main way Gwenda Joyce has helped me as an artist is by her honest and very knowledgeable reactions to my work. I don’t think my art would have advanced as it has without her feedback. Our conversations are a great source of energy for me. More concretely, she works hard to help me find outlets for my art. Her letter of recommendation was instrumental in my recent successful application for a Pollock-Krasner Grant.
