Inspire. Empower. Motivate. | Creative Business Coach


You're not alone.

Sometimes when you're a creative person, maybe an artist, photographer, writer or graphic designer, you work alone in your studio or office. Often times getting together with peers in your field or other creative folks can encourage better brainstorming, help perfect designs, or challenge you to try new techniques. But does this really help your creative business become more successful? Probably not.


Few creative activities will help you take your business where you want it to go and you've probably already figured out most creatives don't enjoy all the boring business stuff. For most creatives going into business is just a matter of starting to take jobs or commissions, creating a website or online portfolio, applying to art shows, in short - selling your work. But then you realize there are all these other, less creative, tasks that go along with building a successful business, like taxes, branding, and marketing. Unless you are in the minority of creatives who took business classes in college or worked in the corporate world before ditching your suit for paint brushes, you don't know much about starting and operating a business and that is where I come in. I'm here to let you know you are not alone.

I'm here for you.

Ten years ago I quit my day job at a large corporation and went full-time into the photography business I own with my husband, Allan. It was both the best decision I have ever made and the worst. It was the worst decision because I didn't go into it with a well thought out plan for success, no business plan, no clear picture of what would happen next. But I learned. I learned a lot! It was the best decision because it gave me the opportunity to learn everything about being in business for myself as a creative. Along the way, I discovered that I love to teach and guide other creatives.


For the last few years, I have had the pleasure of serving as the Team Captain for the Knoxville Creative Hands Street Team and through team meetings and events I have met lots of artists and creative folks who would love to quit their day job and make a living doing what they enjoy most: creating. Countless hours have been devoted to answering questions and giving sound advice over cups of coffee and one day it hit me how much I loved sharing my story and showing others how they could have their own successful creative business. It was then that I decided to launch Pink Spark Creative and offer creative business coaching. Together we will determine where you and your creative business need help and we'll create an Action Plan to get you there. I'm the nudge, the push, the spark you need to get to the next level, whatever that looks like for you.

I'm here to help you so you aren't alone.

Fused Glass Goodness Available at Ijams Nature Center Gift Shop

Happy New Year!

I'm working on my goals and crossing tasks off my to-do list like a boss and it's only the third day of 2017! Although 2016 was a year filled with awesomeness, it was also laced with some not so spectacular events, so I am ready for a clean slate/fresh start/another 365 days to create! I'd love to hear about your goals/plans for this year - please share with me via email or over on the Twitter!

Big news!
Yesterday morning I dropped off a stack of Fusography coasters and a selection of pendants to Ijams Nature Center's Gift Shop. I was asked a year or so ago to put some items in the shop aaaaand I finally got nudged enough so I finally did! So now you can find my fused glass goodness at Southern Market and Ijams.

Here's a sampling of the pieces available at Ijams...

Fusography: order early for holiday gift giving

You're probably thinking, why are you talking about holiday gift giving in August? December is four months away! In the handmade world, four months seems more like four weeks when you're busy completing orders and creating inventory to sell at markets and in your online shop. So, this is just a little public service announcement to remind you to get your holiday orders in early. Fusography orders take three to four weeks to complete, so you'll want to get those in soon. Most other items can be completed in two weeks or less (if I don't have to special order glass).

I was ordering some decals for a custom order of coasters today and that's what made me think about the holidays. I've got some fun holiday graphics that I will be sharing over the next few months, so let me know if something strikes your fancy and we'll get your order placed.

Fusography video series and ebook coming soon!

Good news for those of you who have been waiting patiently for the Fusography workshop video series! It will be available in August! If you are interested in updates on the video series or want to be informed of when it is available for purchase, sign up here. I've been working on the content and now I'm almost ready to start shooting the video. If I were to teach an in-person Fusography class/workshop it would take about a week, so the video series is the smartest, most time-efficient approach, even though I love in-person teaching. Maybe I will offer a downloadable cardboard cutout so you can pretend I am there teaching.

Have you ever realized you have waaaay too many of a certain thing? Maybe it's shoes. Maybe it's makeup. Maybe it's cats. What do you do when you make this realization? You declutter. Except with the cats. You're kind of stuck with them. Well, this is just the dilemma I found myself in with fused glass pendants. I have hundreds of pendants available and most of them are not listed in the Etsy shop (but they will be soon)! So, in an effort to reduce inventory and make room for new designs, all fused glass pendants in stock are now only $10. Yes, only $10!!! Stock up and save or do some early holiday shopping. The price is right!

Want to receive monthly updates on new items and sales? Sign up here!

Check out the newest Fusography designs in the Etsy shop! In the next few weeks, I will be stocking some new Fusography designs on my shelf in the Handmade shops at Southern Market too!

Fresh from the kiln: Fusography Coasters

Fresh from the kiln

These Fusography coasters just came out of the kiln and I'm working on getting them listed in the Etsy shop, but had to share them here first.


It's been a while since I did any with this cute camera design and the red and mint green are two new colors I haven't done before. What do you think?

Be sure to check the Etsy shop for these listings or drop me a line and let me know if you see one (or more) that you must have! Coasters are $15 each and shipping is $6 for up to 4 coasters.

You send me the image(s), I turn them into fusible decals, create the fused glass pieces, fire the decals and you get one-of-a-kind fused glass art!
