​Balancing Work and Life

Individual Session

by Anna Ogier-Bloomer

Anna Ogier-Bloomer believes most artists have a day job, or a second career (or a third, or fourth…), plus family and friends, and more. It can be difficult, or impossible, to find time to get into the studio, let alone submit your work for opportunities such as grants and residencies. In this session you will discuss ways to implement self-care, boundaries, and time management techniques that work for you and allow you to devote the time you need to each part of your life –– without guilt!


In preparation for an Expert session with Anna Ogier-Bloomer, please email her a bulleted list of any questions you have and anything else she should know in advance of your meeting. She also would like to see your work before we speak, so please also email her a link to your website, online portfolio, social media handle, or, if you don’t yet have any work posted online, then a link to a Google Drive folder of images or files she can access. Seeing the work is an important part of your conversation.

For sessions about any of the following: applying to opportunities, building an audience, or conducting studio visits, please also send her any organizations, venues, or individuals you’re interested in connecting with. If you wish to have a session focused on one single application, please let me know what the opportunity and the organization are in advance of your meeting.
