HOW TO HAVE AN ART CAREER WITH STACIE BLOOMFIELD
Learn how to have an art career with Stacie Blomfield of Gingiber. I am excited to share Stacie’s journey of how she turned her art into a career. Learn how you can do the same!
As you’ll hear, Stacie is genuine, happy, creative, and super successful.
Getting married at 20, having kids shortly after, and having her husband get his PhD didn’t leave Stacie with a lot of free time. But despite the lack of time, Stacie has worked hard to get her art into the world.
It was great chatting with Stacie about her personal journey (12 years) to grow her business to what it is today.

STACIE TEACHES YOU TO BE A SUCCESSFUL ARTIST
I have heard SO many good things from people who have taken Stacie’s ‘Leverage Your Art‘ course that I had to ask her about her class.
In Leverage Your Artwork, Stacie is clear that she teaches artist how to sell your art in multiple ways. It’s not an art class on how to create art, but once you have art ready to sell, she teaches HOW to do it.
DIVERSIFIED REVENUE STREAMS
I admire how Stacie has diversified her income. She shares how diversifing her income has helped her in different economic situations. As a business owner, it’s a very smart idea to have different ways to earn an income. Here are the different areas Stacie earns money:
- Brick and Mortar Store
- Online Education

This is also the fabric line Stacie released at Quilt market in 2015 when I met her.

WHAT MAKES STACIE’S ART UNIQUE –
Described as, “reading Stacie’s diary” when looking at her art, she likes to use color, texture, and small details in her art.
“It’s all about the tiny details when someone leans in and looks close. . . ” – Stacie quoting one of her art professors.
