After thirty years as an entrepreneurial photographic artist, creating fine art photography books and exhibitions, lecturing and teaching workshops on photography and promoting her projects, Linda Rutenberg has decided to become more involved in sharing her experience and enthusiasm — and teach workshops to help artists help themselves live from their art. She believes there is a huge need for a toolkit and a working platform in order to teach artists how to monetize their work, and how to engage with the public that would become their future clients.
In addition to her many years sustaining her practice by marketing, selling and promoting her work, she has also learned how to support herself financially by engaging clients and patrons, and raising the funds needed to complete her projects. As an artist, she continue to create photographic projects that explore and investigate various sites while she examines her relationship with them.
She is presently working as a mentor in Dawson College’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship for the Creative Arts program.
