Professional Artist, Entrepreneur and Business Coach
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...
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).

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.
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.
Next Few Years...
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
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.
