Private Art Consulting

As an artist, gallery owner, mentor and consultant, I developed my career by learning from others and through trial and error. When I began, after studying my Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Manitoba, I was completely lost. At the time, I wished there was someone like me to offer guidance.

18 years ago when I became a gallery owner, I learned how artists can better represent themselves in a few simple basic steps and I also learned what to do and not to do as an artist.

I am currently only offering online video consulting and phone consulting services locally and internationally.

My rate is $35CDN per hour. I have recently eliminated the 2 hour minimum per session.

I loved the personal attention in my mentoring session with Jordan. For two hours, she reviewed a large selection of my photographs. Her feedback was supportive and constructive. I ended up with a number of ideas for things I could try to do differently. Jordan talked about specifics of editing and composition in my photos, and also more broadly about abstract art, and the stories photographs can tell. She was very willing to answer all my questions. The session was exactly what I had hoped for.–J.B.

I had a really productive Consulting session this afternoon with Jordan Leigh Miller. Jordan reviewed 4 of my works in progress, and gave me gentle, constructive feedback which I intend to incorporate into my art. Jordan and I also discussed questions I had surrounding use of social media in the sale of art. I would recommend Jordan’s consulting services for artists looking to grow professionally. – Jackie Turnbull

I had a fantastic art consult and critique with Jordan. She was so helpful showing me where I could improve my painting skills and was also wonderful explaining the reasoning behind her suggestions. She answered any art question I asked very thoughtfully with lots of tips. Will do again!! -debbie watt

Highly recommend having a critique/consult done by Jordan. Her very easy-going manner partnered with her talent & knowledge had me feeling very privileged to have the time with her. I plan on booking her again in the future.
