The 101010 Project question today is answered by Stephanie Guimond
Business – Stephanie Guimond – Artist, visionary, avid left-brainer
Years in Business – Less than 1
A little about Stephanie – I’m Stephanie Guimond, artist, visionary and avid left-brainer. I paint, I dream big and I love spreadsheets.
In 2008 I picked up a paint brush for the first time since kindergarten and haven’t put it down since. My art, like myself, varies in style and personality from the vintage girly to the unexplainable abstract. The most common theme is visibly the feminine, but I’m always exploring…
Working with materials like acrylics, paper, pastels and ink, I’m drawn to an intuitive and fluid approach to painting where images appear organically before being polished into a finished product. Because of this intuitive nature, pieces are heavily influenced by what I’m living the week, the day or the moment they are created. They reflect a personal story that in an odd way infuses them with a universal quality.
I share my home with hubby and Cassie, our Golden Retriever. I left my 9-5 job last fall to try something different, and spend most of my days working in my guest bedroom turned office/studio creating art and other paid work that supports the life I want to create overall.
I am grateful for the opportunity.
The Question #8: Who is that one person you would like to sit and talk with about your business?
Only one person? Gosh.
I think I’ll have to go with Tara Gentile, I respect the expertise she can offer. I’d love to chat about what next steps and/or products would yield the greatest potential for income relatively quickly, pricing, and how & where to best engage with my target market. While we’re at it, I’d also love to hear about her core business model and strategic planning process.
Stephanie’s current projects – a new Website, growing my business with a new left-brain offering called Get Clear, Get Moving (coming soon!), learning to balance it all in my own way.
Below are the other artists and the questions they will be hosting. Please check them out! And I will be posting the answer by another artist on Monday.

Due to life’s twists and turns, this session of the 101010 Project features 8 participants instead of 10.
