The Creative Business Hub mentoring program
Work with me to build & run your creative business using my 23 years’ experience. It’s life-time access to fit with your creative flow & needs.
Why choose me as your mentor?
Creativity is in my DNA. Business too. I grew up watching my own parents and grandparents run successful businesses from home.
My first memories of art was when I was 3 years old, lying on the floor with my father, who drew a bus with my name on the side. One minute the paper was blank. The next a whole bus appeared. As if by magic. I’ve hooked on drawing & creating things from my imagination ever since.
Business & creativity go perfectly together; I held my first art exhibition in Geneva, Switzerland back in 1999. And I’ve been equally hooked on making money from my art and design ever since!
Everything I teach comes from real-life, lived experience. Not theory. I’ve made money from my creativity and I’ve also learnt some hard lessons along the way. I want to help you reach your creative dreams, visions and goals faster, by leaning on me and my experience to guide you.
I want to share some of my favourite pieces with you; artwork and designs that span 23 years in business wearing many different hats:
- From drawing nudes, to sketching the architecture of great cities.
- From designing custom fabrics, to upholstering signature chairs.
- From opening a little shop, to launching an online design tech start-up.
- From designing custom video backdrops to full brand identities.
Members’ words about The Creative Business Hub
Flexible & Self-Paced.
I like that it’s self-paced learning online – I have three children & do not have a consistent schedule. I can pick and choose based on where I am at in my personal art & business journey.
The Muse Oracle
Perfect for getting started or refining your business.
The members in the community are incredibly encouraging and genuine – reflects Emma’s leadership!!
There is a massive amount of insight available for anyone who wants to learn quickly. Plus with live calls and conversations – it really ticks off all the boxes.
Great for someone starting out and working on the building blocks of their business.

You are not a number.
I love my interactions with Emma. I don’t feel like a number, she makes everyone feel important.
I’ve used the modules & it’s really helped my business. They are informative & inspiring.
I also love the monthly live mentoring sessions & the masterclasses. The community is great too!

Last week was Hallowe'en. My internal body clock and calendar does not have Hallowe'en as a setting. It's simply not a thing for me. For me, having grown up in the English countryside in the 70s, 80s and 90s, I count Bonfire Night (Guy Fawkes Night) on November 5th as the start of the end of the...
We make a dreadful mistake with our creativity & money. And it starts with our kids. We teach them to give. money away…which simply feeds into the starving artist mentality as adults.
It's the cliched, entrepreneurial dream; being a digital nomad, travelling to far-fun places, earning money passively as you lounge on a yacht, working just 4 hours per week (thanks Tim!)....and although the idealised version of entrepreneurialism still exists, the reality of it is a little...
