"The Artist's Navigation Course is one of the best investments I have done for not only my art business, but myself as well."

In a day and age where there is so much content, courses, social media you feel like you have to juggle and master it all and it's totally overwhelming. Kat's course breaks the steps down to pursuing your business/goals in a way that is approachable, tactical and incredibly inspiring! She has your back every step of the way and I know will continue to do so in the future. I am also so stoked to have these modules that I can rewatch and apply to any new future business ideas, or when I am overwhelmed and need to regroup my thoughts and goals. Kat is a true gem for what she has done not just for this course, but for the entire art world and community! Thanks so much!

Hey there!

I'm Kat and I want to be your guide.

I understand the struggles all too well. When I finally experienced ease, flow, and abundance in my life and art journey, I felt an undeniable duty to share the tools and mindset shifts that transformed my path. Remember, you're not on this journey alone.

The voyage that got me here.

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.

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.

It was time to wholeheartedly embrace my identity as an artist. 

This  course is the only one of its kind because...

I teach from my experiences and tested this on my clients.

Despite the ups and downs I've experienced I've achieved things I once only daydreamed about: international exhibitions, features in esteemed publications, media attention, and unwavering support of my artist community.. To an onlooker, it might seem like I just got lucky.

However, my success wasn't due to mere luck. It was about:
  • Holding onto a vivid vision.
  • Taking inspired actions.
  • Never losing faith.
  • Committing to hard work.
  • And learning the blueprint of being a professional artist that I teach inside this course.

I highly recommend The Artist Navigation Course because is an empowering and healing journey that helped me to build more confidence in my artistic path. I had also the chance to get to know so many wonderful women artists and to fill all the gap I had about the art business. Kat is an outstanding coach, caring and helpful and a wonderful and empathetic soul. 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."

"Thank you a million times over for creating this course! The content is top-notch and I know I'll refer to it again and again. The group Zoom sessions were incredibly helpful, supportive and so inspiring! The combination of coaching and business skills offered in this program is so unique, and just what I needed to help me discover and embrace a new mindset, and navigate to the next level in my career. I'm already feeling more confident, selling more workshop tickets, and showing my art in two new galleries as a result, with plans for bigger projects in the works! I've gained so much from this course, and I feel like it's only the beginning of what's possible for me."

— Inga Ilze Peterson
Paper Flower Artist and Instructor

"I'm already feeling more confident, selling more workshop tickets, and showing my art in two new galleries as a result!"



"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!"



"This course was an experience like no other. It helped me to look at myself and at my art career through different lenses. I learned new skills and gained a feeling of community. I am truly grateful to have gone on this journey and would suggest it to anyone who feels stuck or wants to take their art business to the next level."
