“The “starving artist” life sentence has us accept that creativity is undervalued in our society. It suggests that those of us who rely on creative gifts to make a living can expect to be poorly paid, and the rest of us are entitled to short-change them in money terms, and undervalue them in human terms.” The Soul of Money by Lynne Twist

Embrace Your Potential

It’s time for something REVOLUTIONARY to help propel us out of the “starving artist” mindset.

Let’s face it… artists have a REALLY hard time finding commercial art buyers and businesses want affordable access to an abundance of new talent. Where, online can the two unite and converse, easily? LinkedIn is a business network but not the place for Artists. We deserve our OWN business community so I developed Embrace Creatives to give artists a professional space to design healthy and strong business relationships. Headquartered in gritty, art-centric Metro Detroit, EC is an engaging network that thrives on artistic expression and unites artists with commercial art buyers, peer support and business opportunities.


Why Embrace Creatives?

  • Be found easily by clients, creative collaborators and employers.
  • Build meaningful business relationships to expand your professional network.
  • Upload unlimited images, Portfolios, Look Books, Line Sheets and more.
  • Showcase your community events and studio process using Projects.
  • Share professionalism with your CV, bio and artist statement.
  • Find new opportunities via calls, grants, jobs/gigs and creative classifieds.
  • Receive deals and discounts on professional business services.

All passions welcomed! (Yes, even nudes and erotic art)


As shown in our Community Guidelines, Embrace Creatives gives you a dedicated space to present your work and share your career with other professionals. Connect to an abundance of targeted businesses that want to buy your soulful creations, hire you for special projects and/or employ you. Oh, and in Embrace Creatives, you matter.  Unlike the big guys, we’re a small band of Creatives that WANT you to succeed and be part of our development so watch for periodic questionnaires and let us know how we’re doing, anytime.

Thank you for being a part of my vision.

Meet Andrea

Embrace Creatives is the brainchild of professional artist and creative business consultant, Andrea Rosenfeld. Empowering hundreds of Artists and industry professionals for years, Andrea saw over and over again the disconnect between the two and realized she could solve this problem, easily. Jotting down her ideas she reached out to a tech friend and said, “I want to connect artists and buyers, online while giving them access to business education to guide them to higher profits and internal value.” And with that commitment, Andrea lovingly crafted Embrace Creatives. It’s Andrea’s wish that Embrace Creatives grows to become the go-to place for MILLIONS of artists, so together we can empower, uplift and move our creative industries forward for good. Read more…
