Here's my story

Hey there, if you're feeling confused and frustrated, and it seems like your dreams are drifting out to sea, I've got your back. 

I've been there too—I used to paint on the floor of a studio apartment while serving pancakes at IHOP. But through countless hours of research and learning from failure, I've documented every step it took for me to go from invisible and unknown to building an international art career and a global six-figure online business. If I can do this, I know you've got what it takes too.

What I've learned is that it all starts with unapologetically believing in and committing to your dreams, then taking simple, actionable steps to achieve them.

Yet, a small voice inside me whispered that I was destined for more, even if my current circumstances hinted otherwise. After years of scraping by, squeezing art sessions on our apartment floor between various odd jobs, a realization dawned on me.

Remember, you're not on this journey alone. In 2011, burdened with debt and facing a bleak outlook post-art school, ugly-crying became my daily routine. Every job, every exhibition I applied for turned me away. My reality? Serving pancakes just to get by. I felt defeated and frustrated.


"This course helped me create clear visions of my goals and how to achieve these goals with actionable steps and a great community of support."

I finished this experience with more strength and courage to put my self out there, which was exactly the goal I wanted to reach when I first started the course."

"The Artist Navigation Course was incredibly beneficial to my life for a variety of reasons. I learned so much about the practical tools needed to design my own online art program, but Kat also helped so much in the confidence-building aspect. I've had an idea for the past year to design my program, and taking Kat's course enabled me to show up for myself, learn practical/ business tools, and work through my own limiting beliefs that I didn't realize I had. She also helped a lot to soothe some of my studio anxiety. Believing in myself helped me shift my mindset from feeling embarrassed of my art and career dreams to excited and empowered to take the next right to achieve them. Take this course - it's so so beneficial in many different ways!" 

— Jen Dwyer

"This program left me excited and empowered!"
