Everybody I know has a favorite Mary Engelbreit quote or a favorite Mary Engelbreit image. Mary’s imagery and art reaches in and tugs at our hearts, makes us laugh, makes us share it with a friend. There seems to be a “knowing” in her art that has resonated with people since she first put pen to paper. Considered our generation’s Norman Rockwell, Mary’s imagery says what we all need to hear!
With over 6,500 products and 1 billion dollars worth of lifetime sales, she is not just an industry leader in the art licensing world, she is THE industry leader!
I was so thrilled to sit down and talk to Mary! She has weathered plenty of recessions and market storms with elegance and good cheer. I am grateful that she jumps in and talks business right away. Pay attention, Mary discusses the changing face of art licensing but she also shows that tenacity and good art win in the end!
This was a real full circle moment for me. I have admired Mary and her work since I decided to illustrate. I love that she consistently encourages other artists!
In Part 2, we get a peek at the mind set she puts herself in when she starts a new piece of art, this is the key to creating art the resonates with a buyer! So come back Thursday so you don’t miss it! Sign up for our newsletter and I will pop it in your email.

And you know I believe this!!
