“I've been an artist in two different mediums for over 25 years. I had some modicum of success. However, since  I've been reading Barney Davey’s books and joined the Art Marketing Mastery Workshop Facebook group I've learned more about art marketing and found tools that consistently work…Each time I utilize your training, I learn something, and go on to make art sales. I'm very grateful.”
