Business Coaching For Creative Entrepreneurs
Does the mention of business planning, productivity and social media strategy make you want to hide your head under the covers?
When you run a business that is based on your creativity, it can be easy to spend a lot of time on the right brained activities and forget about all those important practical things that need to happen in order to drive your biz forward. I can help you with this!
I have been running a creative filming business for 12 years and more recently have turned my passion for art into a business. This uniquely positions me to help you bring the creative and the practical together. I’m an analytical thinker and I will help you get clarity where you feel overwhelmed!
We will work together to identify your goals & what might be holding you back. Then we will put together practical and attainable steps so you can start achieving those goals. I will help you get excited about productivity and hold you accountable so you can get your message and offering out to your ideal audience!
Iris helped me identify areas in my business that would improve my productivity then helped me decide which systems to put in place to enable me track things more effectively. I’ve found it has reduced the amount of time I need to spend on the business tasks which leaves more time for making art!
She has plenty of fantastic ideas, gained from her years of experience running her own creative business. Working with an artist who understands that sometimes we think differently was really helpful – I’ve tried many ways of tracking and planning my business in the past but Iris is the first coach to understand my needs and offer ideas that suit my creative (and somewhat undisciplined!) mind. I look forward to working with her again and recommend her highly for coaching if you are an artist or crafter.

Creative Coaching For a More Connected Self
Do you want to express yourself truly and authentically? Do you want to create art that comes from the depth of your soul? I know you have this in you, but right now you might be feeling like it’s a struggle to get there.
We will explore who you are as a person and an artist and uncover your story: your ‘big why’ for creating art. We will discover more about what drives you, what your goals are for your art and what is currently holding you back from achieving them.
Iris is an incredibly warm, thoughtful and reflective person and you get a real feel for that when you speak to her. She’s intuitive and offers great insights, striking a positive balance between talking and listening. When I work with Iris, I always come away inspired – with more confidence around actually enjoying the process and with the tools and understanding to explore different techniques. Iris has been a strong influence in me picking up painting again after 20 years. Her passion and enthusiasm for enabling me and my creative expression through paint and colour is of infinite value to me! I totally recommend working with her. Thank you Iris ))).

What people say about working with me
Iris is a sensitive, artistic soul who with bravery explores through art journaling the deeper connection we can form between art and our selves. Her work often forms an interesting series of developing images and she is open to share that process with her audience- not only when it works just fine but more important when she is facing some self-challenges around her own creativity, expectations and results. I adore her openness and honesty as well as ability to show it to the people. It makes it all more real and feeling like she is there with you. At the same time her process is allowing for lot of playfulness, exploration of colour and adventures with mixed media. Her work is also an opportunity to try different mediums as Iris works in many of them from acrylics and inks to variety of mixed media techniques as well as watercolours.

Iris has the most gentle yet strong attitude during our work together, I feel nurtured and in safe hands whilst receiving the most awesome level of insight and eloquence and support. Iris has helped me negotiate two life-changing experiences this year and both times she has shone light on all the ways I can move through while remaining true to myself and my vision. Having her involved meant I could make progress far more quickly than had I been left to my own time-frame. I was able to release my disappointment and move into joy and light so quickly that I wish I had known Iris forever! Working with an art/life coach is so key for my creativity which I was desperate to start expressing but it is the life work that she has helped me with that I will always remain indebted to her for – the combination means I am sure I remain a client of Iris’s for many years to come.
Jodee Peevor, Mappleborough Green UK
As an artist who goes through the highs and low whether in creativity or self-confidence, it is very important for me to communicate with like-minded persons who can “get” me. Iris is that kind of person. She completely understood where I was coming from and she validated my feelings at the time when I don’t know what direction I would take next. She gave me sound advice and reminded me that, as an artist, I don’t need to justify my choices and that people may disagree or don’t understand me but that’s okay. Iris helped me get back to the right path and I can never thank her enough.

Iris is super knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to making videos and setting up online workshops! When I was ready to film my first video, Iris helped me to decide on what camera, setup and editing program would best fit what I wanted to accomplish. She also answered many questions as I put together my website for offering online courses and selling my artwork. Iris guided me as I set up a newsletter for my clients. She is so amazingly helpful and really knows what she is talking about! Iris is awesome and I would highly recommend working with her!!
Kara Strachan Bullock, Tustin California USA
As a starting Artist I lacked confidence and I experienced a lot of perfectionism, creative blocks, fears and insecurities. Still, I persevered and I even started to show my art on social media. Not long after that I got in touch with Iris. We often talk about my insecurities, fears and my perfectionism and how those things hinder me in my Art and also in my plans for the future. When I talk to Iris she always takes time for me and she always gives me the feeling that “I am good enough and so is my Art” .. She always encourages me when I have plans or ideas and ALWAYS gives me the feeling that I and my ART are good enough. She often tells me that she is proud of me and she gives me such a good feeling about not only myself but my also my art! I hope she knows that .. because I have grown because of Iris as a person but also as Artist! Thanks a lot Iris, xxx
