I've been exactly where you are: you are dreaming of having a career as an artist. I graduated with an art degree, but then became a coffee shop manager because I didn't know how to make money with my art.
I started selling my own artwork online. Then: LIGHTBULB MOMENT: I realized that I could leverage my artwork by licensing my art, selling products wholesale, creating my own website, and creating book illustrations. The possibilities seemed endless!
Now nearly 12 years later I license my art to major companies, sell my products in 800+ retail stores, teach thousands of creative entrepreneurs how to take their big ideas and run with them, & lead a growing team of amazing employees. I feel like I am in control of my business, and I want to teach you how to do the same.
I am here to teach you exactly how I did it, save you years of trial and error, and give you the advice and tips I wish someone had given me when I launched my business.

The Creative Powerhouse Society is a membership for creative business owners who are interested in building multiple revenue streams for their artwork and are looking for guidance and support as they build a sustainable, joyful, and fulfilling career.
I believe you can share your gifts AND earn income from your art. You can use the skills and tools that you already have to generate revenue from your artwork—and I can show you how to do it.
Feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, or confused? I've been there! 6 years ago I was ready to GIVE UP. I had my 3rd child. I had a “successful” small business, & I hoped to take a decent maternity leave. NOPE. Revenue was so dependent on my output that stepping away from the day to day was almost impossible. I had a team who shipped & handled assembly of products, but I had to make new art & hit deadlines.
Instead of enjoying my newborn son, I was sad & longing for change. By the end of 2016, I thought about walking away from Gingiber. Closing it down. The inconsistent revenue was too hard. I had put all of my income eggs in one basket.
I know now what I didn’t know then: ANY strong business needs multiple sources of income in order to create stability. And, it turns out, I was just a few decisions away from creating the stability and flexibility that my family so desperately needed.
Could I take my existing artwork and use it to create passive income? Could I design fabric? Could I illustrate books? Once I started dreaming BIG about how I could use my artwork to create income, the possibilities seemed ENDLESS. So I put my head down, got to work, and soon, I had my first fabric deal with Moda Fabrics.
I decided to pursue art licensing with a fierce focus, and I stopped referring to myself as a “doodler”. NOPE. I was now thinking of myself as a “Creative Entrepreneur”. And from then on, I prioritized teaching myself how to be a smart and strong business woman.
Does any of this feel familiar? Are you where I was 6 years ago? Do you feel like you need someone to take your hand & guide you towards your creating a sustainable, joyful, and stable creative career?
It can happen. It is never too late to change your life. Now is the time to build a stable foundation in your art business.
And I’m here to guide you, and to save you YEARS of mistakes, trial and error, and to help you realize that you have what it takes.
Dwell In Possibility. This is a phrase that has carried me through so many parts of my life when I wasn’t quite sure what to do with my art or how to grow my business. But I would dwell in the possibility of a future where I was confident in my creative skills, where making an impact on my community, and realizing that my biggest dreams could actually happen. I believe in having a vision for your future. I will teach you how to DREAM BIG and how to make those big dreams come true. I’m ready to teach you how to visualize the life that you want that will help you: make goals, dream big, work hard, and create that big amazing life that you’ve always wanted.
We were made to encourage each other. And I feel like my purpose on this earth is to help artists like you to feel seen and to feel safe to share your big wins and pressing questions. If you crave guided help while you chase your creative dreams, I have built this community for you. I want you to feel ignited with ENTHUSIASM and PASSION while you are building your stable, multiple revenue stream art business. Here, you will find a community of like minded creatives who GET YOU. Because, let's face it, not everyone understands the journey of a Creative Powerhouse.
Slow growth is good growth. Maybe right now, your work is a little rough around the edges. Maybe it isn't the art that you dream of making. But if you keep investing in yourself and if you keep practicing, you will improve and get to your sweet spot. You will become your own editor. You will develop a critical eye. You will figure out what you are good at and lean into it. I know it is possible, because the illustrator that I was 12 years ago is not the illustrator that I am today. And, fingers crossed, 12 years from now I will look back at my own work and I will have grown a ton more. You are playing a long game, my friends. Don't give up. Keep making work. Keep refining. Slow growth is GOOD GROWTH.
Your creative potential is
and you can do hard things.

"I love the Creative Powerhouse Society. Not only is Stacie amazing and attentive to everyone individually (she’s Wonder Woman!), the group is full of lovely people willing to help you out. There are a million reasons to love this membership but I’ll focus on one aspect—the community!
I’m part of a Peer Group and we have already made such huge progress helping keep each other accountable and giving solid ideas to help grow our individual businesses.
There’s no competition here, either. Only a loving community willing to help; something that is SO important for someone like me who feels very overwhelmed by the art licensing world.
I would not be able to figure this out without Stacie, the community, or this membership. It’s amazing!"
"I wanted to move from a successful business teaching art, to focusing on my art and surface design. I didn’t want to lose or confuse my current audience. I was stuck and knew I needed experienced guidance.
I jumped at the opportunity to have a business consultation with Stacie Bloomfield. Stacie was able to draw on her years of experience as a thriving creative entrepreneur. She offered encouragement, clarity, and actionable, practical solutions that I was able to implement quickly and easily.
For the first time, I understood how I could share all of my interests and serve a bigger audience as my best, authentic self. Armed with pages of invaluable take-aways from our consultation, I’m on a path to my biggest dream! Thank you, Stacie!"

She is very generous, sharing the behind the scenes of her business and sharing her knowledge and know how from her many years of experience.
