I haven’t had the chance to meet Katrina in person, but listening to her podcast makes me feel like we’re best friends! I listen while I’m in the car or while doing housework - she makes cleaning the kitchen almost enjoyable! Seriously though, she’s like every creative mama’s personal cheerleader! I feel so encouraged and inspired every time I listen.
I love listening to this podcast while creating art. It gives me motivation, and inspiration to continue to create. She has great insight through her work as an artist and offers business tips and advice. You can tell how much she loves to help others while listening to her stories and while she interviews other artists. Thanks Katrina for the great podcast!
This podcast is a huge blessing in my life! I feel like Katrina encourages me, and also supports me in following my dreams as an artist, both from the inspiration side, as well as the practical business side. I love hearing how she makes time to create amongst raising kids, and helps her family pursue their passions. Katrina is so sweet and compassionate. She makes everyone feel valued as a person and artist.
Katrina has wonderful insight into the life of an artist and especially for an artist who is also trying to juggle motherhood. Most artists find it hard to work from home, market their work, network and continue growing and learning and making a living with their art. It’s extra difficult trying to find the time and energy to take care of both family and art is challenging. Katrina shows us just how it can be done and that it is possible!
I have listened to your podcast many times while painting and found it quite inspiring as well. You are very genuine and gracious and it comes through in your episodes.
Creative inspiration, practical tips & so enjoyable! This is so enjoyable listening to while I'm in the studio painting, I feel like Katrina and I are just hanging out as I create! She's one of the most genuine people and it really comes through in her podcast. It's obvious that she has a true passion and a gift for supporting other women, especially in their creative pursuits. Not only do I feel more inspired to chase down my artistic goals, but I also appreciate the practical tips for maintaining and growing a creative business!
Love this podcast! This podcast is a great companion for an artist at any stage of their career or business. Katrina has years of experience and knows so much about the business of art, instagram, email marketing and connecting with buyers and just the ins and outs of being an artist and mother. She is such a valuable resource and shares all she knows through the podcast as well as the CANDYclub, a group of artists she has organized together to participate in curated content to help grow our businesses. She is fantastic and this podcast is such a wonderful resource for all those who are looking for information or encouragement in their artistic practice! Thanks Katrina!
