Speaker: Andrea Rosenfeld

Dedicated to propelling us out of the “starving artist” mindset, Artist and Creative Business Coach, Andrea Rosenfeld uses mindfulness paired with clear business strategies to guide entrepreneurs to higher profits and their higher selves.

With a New York, wholesale fashion and accessories background, Rosenfeld shares her vast experience in small business development and operations with her clients and students. After 30 years on the East Coast, she moved back to Michigan in 2014, began Detroit Art & Business Institute, LLC and developed low cost, online business training modules called Mind Your Art Business Growth Course.

With the desire to uplift even MORE artists, Rosenfeld launched her startup, Embrace Creatives, a dedicated network/market that unites Professional Artists and Commercial Art Buyers, easily and affordably. Hundreds of creative entrepreneurs have been educated via her programs and she has a growing, national membership of 2,800 artists and industry professionals. In addition to empowering artists in person and online she participates as a panelist and speaker at conferences, symposiums, and workshops across the country.
