We take care of the administrative, so you can focus on the creative.

At More Canvas Consulting we provide administrative and advisory services for artists and ensembles. Our clients have access to industry expertise from a team that understands what it means to be a creative who is working to expand an audience, communicate about the art, and advance a career.

Our Clients


There is no one kind of client at More Canvas, just like there is no one kind of artist. If you are looking for someone to take care of the business side of your art, let us be of service to you.

For all of our clients we take extra care to craft the story for each particular online audience, be it an audience of patrons, presenters, funders, donors or collaborators.

Our Services

Whether it is building a strategy, providing extra capacity, or simply talking through ideas, we work with clients in many arts-related fields.

Our services are tailored to meet the specific needs of each of our clients, so let’s have a conversation to find out how More Canvas can support your work.

Website Design

At More Canvas we have found that the whistles and bows and fireworks are only a distraction from what our artists want to say: This is who I am, this is my work, this is where you can find it. We design websites that are simple, clean and usable.

Our Founder

Pilar Castro-Kiltz

After graduating from Princeton University with a degree in Music and a double minor in theater and dance, our founder went on to earn her MFA from NYU Tisch School of the Arts in Dance and Choreography.

In 2011 she founded Ensemble Dance, a dance theater company creating original works for performance in New York City, and has worked through her own company and freelance projects as a choreographer, director, actor, dancer, and violinist. Her work has been seen from festival and Off-Off-Broadway stages to Radio City Music Hall.

While still creating as an artist, Pilar started More Canvas Consulting in 2014. Her mission continues to be to provide tailored and affordable business management for the arts, while creating regular income opportunities for artists who seek to build transferrable business skills and apply their first-hand knowledge of being artist-entrepreneurs while working for More Canvas Consulting.

Currently Pilar is earning her MBA at The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. As part of her mission to strengthen networks and resources for those in the arts, Pilar founded the Princeton Arts Alumni in 2013, and has been a member of the young patrons committee at The Park Avenue Armory since 2016.

We hire artists as part of our mission to contribute to a sustainable and enduring arts landscape.
