WARRIOR of No Fear


When was the last time you heard a creative person say “I don’t have a career I have a business?” Well, buckle up because we’ve invited the Warrior of No Fear to join us for a passionate conversation about being a successful artist and business owner. All Creative Warriors want to be seen and heard. The ultimate acknowledgement of your work is through a sustainable business.

Ann Rea is on a mission to stamp out the “Starving Artist” slur and to help artists secure their creative freedom through business savvy. Her artistic talent is commended by Wayne Thiebaud, an American art icon, and she has been featured on Creative Live, HGTV, ABC, and The Good Life Project, in Fortune and The Wine Enthusiast magazines, and in the book Career Renegade.

Ann teaches The MAKING Art Making MONEY Semester. An interactive, eight-part, foundational, business semester specifically for artists. Ann is always ready to get down to business whether she’s holding a brush, teaching or speaking.
