Hey there

I'm Sophie

Professional Artist, Entrepreneur and Business Coach

I left behind being a single parent on the benefit system, worked hard, got educated, stayed focused and made a heap of mistakes.15 years on I’ve put together my two passions Art & Business and now feel blessed every day.

My mission is to enable as many artists just like you, worldwide, to set up and grow their dream life and business.

What this means for you...

No More...

Hiding in the studio, waiting to be discovered.
Working full-time in a job you hate wondering when your life as a professional artist can really begin.
Under-pricing your work because it feels too scary to price it at what it’s really worth.

I have been there and I am excited to make sure you never are again

I want to help you in a way that’s enjoyable, in line with your values and creates the true abundance you are seeking (in whatever area that might be).

From Single Parent on the Benefit System

To Empowered Entrepreneur

This is my story

How did I get

To Where I Am Today

I’m not going to lie to you. I haven’t created all this in 12 months. It’s taken many years, different phases, ever-evolving businesses, thousands of dollars in mentoring and courses, till I was able to pull all my strings together and be totally ‘in flow’.

I was a single child, brought up in the country-side, who preferred time alone to being with others or joining in. I always felt like an outsider, hoping to find a place to fit in. Trying one community after another.

I followed in my parents’ footsteps and became a teacher, teaching art for 8 years in the UK. But I didn’t feel fulfilled being employed, as I wasn’t in charge of my own growth.

Time To

Quit That Job...

I finally quit my job and went all-in as a professional artist, which you can read more about on my Art Website Sophie Mahir Art .

I got to paint every day, exhibit in galleries, art fairs, solo shows, run open studios, organise an art trail, fulfil my goals and much more. I’d learnt a bit about business but had not really taken it too seriously and fairly soon I found myself burnt out and looking to experience something much easier and lighter. I put down my art.

The transitional

Next Few Years...

Saw me diving deep into both personal and business courses and emerging having set up and running a successful Business Coaching Practice from my office in a business training centre on the South Coast of England. The dollars were coming in, but I was still searching for fulfilment and complete happiness. I knew I had to make a big decision and make a radical change if I was going to even get close to what I really wanted.
Sometimes life just gives you a nudge, and in 2013 I sold my house in the UK, packed up our belongings, filled a suitcase and headed for Melbourne.

The moment when it all

Fell In To Place

After 3 years living out of a suitcase, becoming part of the ‘Digital Nomad’ tribe in Asia, fate landed me back in Australia, in Perth this time and kept me there. Having met a wonderful man and fallen in love I assessed my life. I quickly realised I could put together my passion for painting (which I took up again) and love of business and help my fellow artists with all the knowledge I had acquired during my coaching years.

It is never too late

Make The Change

You don’t have to wait till you are retired or stay in a job you hate just to pay the mortgage. With so many options available to artists these days you really can build an art business any way you like. On your terms. 

I’d love to help you do just that.

You too can have a life and business that you design.
