Imagine if you could go from feeling lost and overwhelmed to having all the answers in one place, within a supportive community of other people just like you.
You can, as The Hub is just that…
I’m Michelle Lloyd, founder of United ArtSpace.  I work with visual artists (and soon to be visual artists) who want to cultivate their self-belief, carve out their place in the art world, and grow the confidence to show and sell their work.


If you would like to join the wait list and be the first to hear about when the hub will launch, please sign up below for updates.

It pains me to see so many artists in my group who have extraordinary talent and passion yet they just don’t know what to do with it.
I see the same issues cropping up all the time:

Lack of money

Lack of time

You’re not sure how to price your work

You don’t know how to find the right customers

You’re feeling overwhelmed with all the options and endless things to learn

You’re worried senseless in case art isn’t going to make you the money you need to survive

But worse are the negative thoughts and doubts that creep in, have you heard yourself saying:

I’m not talented enough

I feel like a fraud

I just can’t do this

Being an artist just isn’t possible

I’m not good enough

Everyone else is better than me

My art isn’t important

Nobody will like my art

These thoughts and feelings are normal and every single one of us have experienced them.


Change is totally possible and there are so many examples of people who despite dealing with similar circumstances (or even worse) have found a way to make it happen.

I don’t want to see you wasting time and energy in the wrong places and on the wrong things, only to get disheartened when your work doesn’t sell or nobody interacts with it.


That’s why I am creating The Hub – so you have all these answers in one place.

I am creating an online Hub of resources, guest expert trainings and live workshops  that will help break everything down so you have all the information and answers you need, in one place.

You will access the material via our website and it will all be delivered through video, audio & PDF’s.

When you join the hub you will find resources on the following subjects:

When you join the members’ hub you will also get:

Monthly Guest Experts

There is no one path to take, we are all unique and every journey is different. That’s why i feel it is important to team up with industry experts who can share their knowledge with you.

Every month i will invite an expert into The Hub to do a training with you, they will cover topics such as:

Social Media
Art on Demand
Art Consultants teaching how to sell
Mindset experts teaching you how to be confident

I will also listen to your needs and if there is a topic you want us to feature, i will do my very best to make it happen.

Featured Artist Gallery

You will be featured in our public artist gallery with your own profile page enabling people to learn more about you and your work.
As i run a group with over 2.5k artists in it, i often have people approach me as they are looking to buy artwork. As it’s difficult to do this through the Virtual Art Studio i have decided to create a public gallery so every member gets featured on our website.
This way people can learn more about you and your work and you can sell it without paying us a commission.

15 min How To's

15-minute video guides released every month called the ‘How to’ they will break down the steps of things like, creating a business card, approaching galleries, invoicing, bookkeeping, social media tips and lots more.

Monthly Q&A

I’m not going to leave you to learn all this alone, every month there will be live Q&A sessions where you can get all of your questions answered.


Have access to a private Facebook group where there will be other visual artists in the same boat as you, all helping and encouraging one another.  Joining together to keep each other motivated, inspired & accountable.

I didn’t want to create a course where you learn and then have to apply the learning by yourself.  I want to create a space where you have access to all the information you need as well as ongoing support.

The journey of an artist is a long one and it’s unique to every individual. There is no one path and what works for one person may not work for another.

The Hub will encourage you to find your true path and find what works for you as you learn from industry experts.

I have created a visual artist success path so you can see who the hub is for and see the progression we are aiming to make. You may not want to travel the whole way and may just be happy at stage 3 or 4, everyone is different and that’s the beauty of the success path.
