About the Presenter: Stephen C. Wagner encourages other artists to commit to their artwork and take the steps necessary to become more successful through his guest speaking on professional development for artists at art organizations throughout California and on-line via Zoom. His lectures offer artists insight to jump-start their artist career, obtain clear focus on their intention for their artwork, create a strategic plan for their artist career, create an impressive artist portfolio website, and master the business of art.

In addition to having extensively exhibited and sold his artwork with galleries both nationally and internationally, Stephen is the managing partner at Arc Gallery & Studios in San Francisco. He has run the San Francisco Artist Network for over 15 years, offering professional development programs for artists. Prior to moving to the Bay Area, Stephen was the Program Development Coordinator for the San Diego Art Institute and was responsible for all educational programs for both adults and children.
