For Individuals

MAP provides in-depth and personalized one-on-one career consultation to support artists in successfully advancing their professional path and practice.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to career advisement. McLean takes great care to ensure her collaborations are directly tailored to the artist’s specific needs and desired outcomes.

She focuses on your work, experience, skills, goals and personality to establish effective strategies suited to you as an artist and as an individual.

Private consultations can include:

  • Establishing career goals with a plan of action and timeline
  • Audience identification and development
  • Strategies for marketing your artwork
  • Evaluation and development of marketing materials
  • Strategies for exhibiting work and résumé building
  • Exhibition refinement and preparation
  • Studio visit preparation
  • Anything else your heart desires.

Sessions are 1 1/2 hours, and if you live within Los Angeles County McLean comes to you. If you do not live in Los Angeles, no worries, McLean offers phone career consultations.

Consultations include a preliminary discussion of your career needs in order to determine the goals and best course of action for your consultation experience.

“Mclean has a tremendous talent for getting to the point and helping me see myself in a way that expands my work and my perspective as a professional artist. My sessions with her have been valuable for their practicality, honesty, support and generosity. I am always eager to share with her, which invariably results in pushing myself further with new ideas and enthusiasm.” – B. Mehta, San Diego, CA
“Working with McLean has helped me present myself and my work in a professional manner, find opportunities to show my work, and refine my work to fit into the contemporary art world. She is a supportive, no-nonsense coach and mentor who made me laugh while I learned how to be a better art professional. She inspired me to take chances. And she was there when I succeeded. I wholeheartedly recommend McLean to any artist who wants to thrive in today’s art world.” – D. Dodge, Los Angeles, CA
