Kind Words From Members...
“Maker’s Tech U is an amazing program that has been helping me improve my online presence as an artist. It has taught me step by step skills on how to develop a brand, create powerful graphics, design and implement a website. Now I can do all that in the proper way, without guess work and hacking my way through. Thanks Roben-Marie for this amazing tool you offer for creatives!! It has been an exciting and enjoyable experience on the tech side of creativity.”
“For the past six years I have had on my goals list that I wanted to build a website. Every year I would re-write the goal, daunted at the prospect of not knowing how or where to start. I wanted the autonomy of being able to build my own website and be able to update it without relying on external sources. Roben-Marie demystifies not only the website process but all those maddening social media updates and technological changes. I love the resources and inspiration Makers Tech provides with all online media. I love it even more that it's presented in easily digestible learning bites that can be immediately applied.”
“Roben-Marie's trainings are easy to follow, pertinent and empowering with immediate benefits. She’s very much a tech-savvy person who not only provides valuable information and a wealth of knowledge, but she also makes herself available to help you when you need it.”
“This is the best money I've spent on any training/workshop/class for knowledge, tips and ideas. Maker's Tech U is what I was looking for!”
“Roben-Marie's MTU is a game changer for me! There is so much tech stuff out there that I know would help me, but I just don't have time to research it all and, frankly, didn't even know where to start.”
Hey! I'm Roben-Marie!
As tech-savvy artist, instructor and woman of faith, my mission is to serve others and help them get the most out of their art as a hobby, or as a business.
I created Maker's Tech U after 16+ years of running my own businesses online and having many artists reach out to me for tech help. It was a natural transition for me to offer my services to artists and makers who just need a life line to help them navigate on their journey.
I have been a working artist for the last sixteen years, and am self-taught, so I believe that anyone can cultivate their creative spark. I've taught mixed media art workshops and retreats across the U.S. and my work has been featured in countless books and industry magazines. I've worked with clients on all things tech, including website design, email marketing, video editing and more!
