Your artist bio should make you feel like a rockstar
Writing your own bio is *the pits*. It’s not easy talking about yourself (without sounding like a self-inflated smooth-talker).
But, you know you need one. Even though your immediate reaction might be, ‘who wants to know about me?’, an artist bio is an opportunity to tell your story and share your achievements.
It connects you to your collectors.
It draws a picture of who you are and what you bring to your work.
More than just a CV
A great bio should get straight to the point. It should showcase your creative skills, strengths and experiences with a splash of personality. It’ll build your cred, grow your following and raise your profile to sell more art.
Get help to take awkwardness out of your bio.
How it works
You complete my Questionnaire, so I can get to know you, and your art, inside out.
We’ll clarify all the details via Zoom, then I’ll get writing.
A bio that can be used on your website, in your media kit, pitches, proposals and any other opps that come up.
- Full page bio up to 400 words
- A 100 word and 50 word bio
- Both first person and third person versions
- Exclusive Trello board to track project and deliverables
- 30 minute kick off meeting to clarify any questions I have about the brief
- Skeleton draft, First draft and two rounds of amends
- Proofreading at an additional cost
Send me the links to your website and blog, links to your social profiles, an example email newsletter and anything else you’re using to share your art.
Alison’s mindful approach to questioning enabled me to express my views in a way that felt extremely valued. The finished article is a piece that is very impressive.
Ali shows a dedication to her craft and to the stories that she puts together. She always takes the time to understand her subject.
I’ve noticed the intricacies that she comes up with based on interviews she has done with me. She finds the heart of an issue and follows that path.

I acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first inhabitants of Australia. I pay my respects to the Elders past and present as the traditional Custodians of the lands and waters.
I acknowledge their living culture and their traditional art forms. I recognise that the land where I live, learn and work is Yugerra land and sovereignty was never ceded. I’m committed to building and sustaining respect and understanding between Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists.
