Paintmymeditation does not guarantee that the artist will secure gallery representation although we will make every effort to do so. Not all artists seek gallery representation or are ready to do so. A consultation for professional artist membership is first established to inquire about the artist goals. We consult to ensure the artist has sought representation first on their own prior to seeking an agent. The artist must be of a certain professional caliber to seek agent services. A conversation can be made regarding artist vs professional artist membership at that point in time and can be switched. Our intent is to assist the artist. Artists may still elect professional artist membership at that point but when doing so for a different purpose such as portfolio development, branding and consultation.
