Hello! I'm Stacie.

Are you ready to leverage your art into your dream career?

I've been exactly where you are: you are dreaming of having a career as an artist. I graduated with an art degree, but then became a coffee shop manager because I didn't know how to make money with my art.

I started selling my own artwork online. I realized that I could leverage my artwork by selling products wholesale, licensing my art, doing custom work, and creating book illustrations. The possibilities seemed endless!

Now nearly 11 years later I license my art to major companies, sell my products in 600+ retail stores, teach & host workshops in my studio, & lead a growing team of amazing employees. I feel like I am in control of my business, and I want to teach you how to do the same.

I am here to teach you exactly how I did it, save you years of trial and error, and give you the advice and tips I wish someone had given me when I launched my business.

Come on! You are about to take the biggest step towards your dream career. LET'S DO THIS.

I'm Giving You My PERSONAL Guidebook to Art Licensing Success

I have worked with huge brands like William Sonoma, Crane and Co, Sellers Publishing, Crate and Barrel and Moda Fabrics + countless other companies licensing my artwork and creating dream collaborations. My products are in over 600 retail stores. And I've done it all by honing a tried and true system of organizing, pitching, and selling my artwork.
 
This course will give you the confidence to go after your DREAM CLIENTS, land collaborations, and continue to grow your brand and tell your own unique story. You too can have a thriving art career. You are a CREATIVE POWERHOUSE. Believe it.

Testimonial

I wanted to move from a successful business teaching art, to focusing on my art and surface design. I didn’t want to lose or confuse my current audience. I was stuck and knew I needed experienced guidance. 

I jumped at the opportunity to have a business consultation with Stacie Bloomfield. Stacie was able to draw on her years of experience as a thriving creative entrepreneur. She offered encouragement, clarity, and actionable, practical solutions that I was able to implement quickly and easily.

For the first time, I understood how I could share all of my interests and serve a bigger audience as my best, authentic self. Armed with pages of invaluable take-aways from our consultation, I’m on a path to my biggest dream! Thank you, Stacie!

I was fortunate enough to work with Stacie from Gingiber quite a bit and it was such a pleasure, always producing wonderful collaborative results!

She was open to working from very little creative direction, brand new out-there ideas or very detailed creative direction.

No matter the request, consistently her art and designs were exactly what our customers were looking for, leading to some of the best selling and most-loved product for the company!
