Jamie’s services – Artist Development & Project Development


It is a love of singing and writing songs, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a fiercely held belief in the value of the artist that fuel my world.  I have a genuine love-of presentation and and love-for collaboration.  I know the artist struggle.  I deal with ennui.  I need to make ends meet, too.  But I never give up!

I am a Chicago area registered arts consultant and teaching artist with over 30 years experience in the arts arena. I am a media producer and consultant.  I am an arts producer and booking agent.  I create high-caliber work in the Humanities with international reach.  My projects have become award-winning productions.  I have on my roster of clients accomplished professionals and leading arts organizations.  I post a regular Blog.  I host an Artist Salon in my home.  I keep my work fresh.

Look around my website and see the types of projects I do.

I offer my clients 3 distinct services for imagining, processing, producing, and presenting work.  The work we do is custom-designed. We work in person,  by phone and email.

WHY I DO THIS… In the late 90s I was looking for a support system for independent artists in the Chicago community who had an interest in self production and promotion.  There were no how-to guides and few opportunities if you free lanced and were not part of a not-for-profit group.  So I developed a series of classes: Making a Life in the Arts at the Arts Entertainment and Media Management Department at Columbia College with guidance of Dennis Rich, then Chair. My singular approach to advising arts practitioners and presenters has now been utilized throughout the Chicago community and beyond: The Portfolio Center at Columbia College, Guild Complex, Center Portion Artist Space, Victory Gardens Training Center, and Gallery 37 Center for the Arts (where I taught Adult Education in the fabulous artScape program, affiliated with Harold Washington College). In the meantime, I continued to develop my own writing and performance skills and produced a substantial body of work.  READ MORE HERE.
