Being a Works member has helped me build confidence in my work and exposed me to the varied expressions of what an art “career” can look like. Erika truly cares about helping artists of all levels in developing their artistic visions. Becoming a Works member was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my art journey, and I’m looking forward to becoming more involved with the Works community.

I get it! I'm an artist too.

I created the Works Membership after years of interviewing and learning from artists, gallerists and entrepreneurs. My experience curating exhibitions, being a guest curator for many spaces you know, and running open calls has given me a behind the scenes view of the application process that I want to share with you! I’ve been on both the application side and the reviewing side and want to share what I’ve learned with you!

Loved the option to be a “Works Member”; too many tools to name that have assisted in my studio practice.

During my time as a Works Member I have learned what it is like to be an artist. I don’t know any artists well. I love “overhearing” these conversations and feel bonds and commonality even though I’m working alone.

Write your own feature

I am a painter with an active studio practice and gallery representation. You may know me from the podcast, I Like Your Work which I created and currently host. We also curate open calls and exhibitions. On top of this I’m a mom to three so I understand the need for time management. I received my MFA from Boston University, spent three years in NYC working as a studio assistant to amazing artists, and then worked in art admissions reviewing artwork. I co-founded MUSA Collective, an artist collective in Boston, MA because I realized how crucial community for artists really is. I love artists. I love being one, I love talking to fellow artists and I genuinely want others to succeed which is why I started this membership.

No. The membership is designed to have each lesson build on the previous one so each month, you receive four  lessons. This allows you time to work on the lesson at hand and achieve your goal. Remember it is implementing the GOAL that moves you forward. 

What if I want to skip ahead?

We have carefully designed the curriculum to drip out at a pace that allows you to absorb the material and take action. Even though it may feel like going faster is better, our experience has shown that our members get the best results when they go one step at a time so for this reason you cannot skip ahead.

Oh YES, Erika has filled a niche or need indeed! At least from my perspective. Specifically, at this particular time I really appreciate her honesty, willingness to be vulnerable and generosity. She is modeling how to put herself out-there and I appreciate that!
