Crista Cloutier

Arizona spawned a creative force that has taken on the whole world!

Crista Cloutier grew up in the Phoenix area and began studying art at a young age. Actively involved in the contemporary art world throughout her career, she is the founder of The Working Artist, an online business school for visual artists of all media.

Cloutier’s career not only led her to an international stage as a creative coach for other artists like herself, she has recently been honored as an “Influencer in the Contemporary Art World” by LinkedIn. Crista’s work has reached artists in more than 70 different countries. 

“Whether you’re ready to fully embrace your role as a Working Writer, a Working Artist, or a working anything,” she says, “you’ve got to commit yourself to the work itself. And to bring it out into the world, you’ve got to commit to the tasks that will take you there.

“This is the magic formula to success.”
