I was so happy to connect with Maria Brophy, art licensing consultant and wife of artist Drew Brophy. Maria loves the art of the deal. She has been managing Drew’s successful art career for some time (check out their TV series) and she is passionate about helping other artists understand what they need to be doing to make money. Who doesn’t need that?! She uses specific examples in this interview… even citing that some companies use different contracts depending on how well known an artist is….WHAT?!! Let’s demystify this process! This is some rich info here. I also enjoy that Maria shares how she and Drew work as a husband wife team. She falls under the “smart cookie” category AND she wants to help you figure your trickest contracts out! She has co authored an ebook with Tara Reed about contracts and she consults with individuals as well. Hooray! I highly recommend you reading through her blog, here is one of the posts that we mentioned in the interview. Aren’t they just the cutest…oh, I mean coolest couple?
