Consulting with Jordan Miller

As an artist, mentor, gallery owner, and consultant, I learned to be a stronger artist by learning from others and by making my own mistakes at first. After graduating from the Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Manitoba in 2002, I was lost on how to be an artist from a business perspective. At that time, I wished there was someone to offer guidance as I do now, for others.

With 20 years of experience, I see how artists can better represent themselves when approaching galleries or working towards their own exhibitions. I'm offering online video consulting and phone consulting services both locally and internationally for $40CDN per hour.  We start with the basics and focus on any of the topics below answering specific questions you may have. You can now pay for your session here.

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.
