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! - JESSICA MICHAELSON ART
