“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
As a creative we live to dream, craft and have adventures but as entrepreneurs we must pepper those visions with realism, strategy, foresight and planning to actually earn a living from our art. Headquartered in Metro Detroit, Embrace Creatives developed an exciting mix of both worlds; an affordable, engaging network/market that will unite you with innovation, peer support and business opportunities to propel your professional practice. We like to think of Embrace Creatives as a “LinkedIn for Artists” but much more beautiful and fun!
Embrace business education, an increased network and the brilliant financial opportunities you need to increase your confidence, audience and sales. My Mission is to propel us out of the “starving artist” mindset. How? By growing Embrace Creatives into the PREMIER network/market that brings together professional artists and commercial art buyers, guides them into strong relationships, prepares them for growth and increases their value.JOIN US

Detroit Art & Business Institute
Embrace Creatives is the brainchild of professional artist and creative business consultant, Andrea Rosenfeld. Empowering hundreds of Artists and industry professionals for years, Andrea heard over and over again the struggles they had finding one another. Galleries would ask her to roam shows to bring in new talent and her Artist clients had little idea how to find galleries, sales reps and wholesale buyers.
YIKES!!! Seeing the disconnect between the two she said, “I want to solve this problem while educating Artists to be profitable and valued in society.” And with that commitment, Andrea lovingly crafted Embrace Creatives.
It’s Andrea’s wish that Embrace Creatives grows to become the go-to place where artists and businesses unite to empower, uplift and move the creative industries forward for good. Read more…
