What would it feel like to be the artist you truly desire to be while becoming the business person you never new was inside of you?
Let me explain…
You adore your art, and you believe in its impact. You crave deepening your craft and sharing that beauty with the world but creating that entails PR, marketing and sales skills you never learned in art school. You are well aware that talent and grit are not the only things it takes to make it. Strategy is king and that’s exactly what is missing from your grand plan.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING...
"Catherine was recommended to me when I started looking for some career advice and guidance for visual artists. I am so glad I contacted her! Catherine is not only a wonderful person but she is an expert in her field. She has exceeded my expectations! With Catherine’s guidance I got more shows, press and YES sales than I thought possible! It's unusual that you find someone who understands the business of art, but also the artists themselves. She goes out of her way to help and really wants her clients to succeed! I cannot recommend her enough!" - Sima Schloss, Artist at simaschloss.com
"Working with Art Business coach, Catherine Orer for the last four months has been great. For four months I had a business partner who I could confer with, ask questions at any time, and even get my newsletters polished. The monthly Skype sessions were always full of good information. The pre-session questionnaires made me think about my business in a clear way. These will now be a part of my monthly routine as they keep me aware of my accomplishments and actions and hold me accountable in a way I've never been before. She is gracious, funny, easy to talk to and I can wholeheartedly recommend her if you are looking for a business partner to guide you in your quest for success." - Christy Sverre, Artist at christysverre.com
"Right from the very first consultation, I knew that Catherine would be the right person to guide and encourage me in achieving my career goals. And in the last six months, I've achieved so much more than I could have ever anticipated. I was able to work from a solid business plan including short, medium and long term goals that could be broken down into realistic achievable targets.Catherine's true expertise lies in her understanding of marketing and PR in terms to the arts. She has been invaluable in teaching me how to grow my online presence and to connect with the right people through the use of simple social media strategies. And I actually spend more time now than ever before making art. She has that wonderful ability of providing the right balance of positive encouragement, practical support and honest feedback that is essential when you are experiencing the ups and downs of becoming a professional artist." - Adam James Butcher, Artist at adamjamesbutcher.com
"It’s incredible when you find a person to work with who knows exactly how to guide you in the direction you want to go. As an artist managing my own business, It’s been a real challenge figuring out how to move forward — but then I found Catherine! With her background, and passion for championing creatives, I knew she had the inside insight into the moves I needed to make, as well as an understanding of who I needed to communicate with and how. I’ve made strides in building my business in ways I would have never come up with by myself, and have watched my audience almost triple over the last 3 months of working with her. Now I have a clear actionable plan for the next year, and I am excited follow the road map that I developed with Catherine’s help. The work we’ve done together has shown me the big picture of all the ways I can engage with my audience — which included a lot of missed opportunities I wasn’t taking. Now I can see ways to not only improve my reach, but to do it more efficiently, so I’m not bogged down in busy work, spinning my wheels. I’m so grateful for all of the focused expertise — working with Catherine has made all the difference to me." —Christina Empedocles, Smartly Art + Personal Finance
"Being a painter involves not only the traditional way of working in the studio, it also means looking after your visibility, recognition and selling your work. Catherine helped me understand all the mechanisms of this dynamic. Her profound knowledge of public relations, communications and visual arts make her a valuable ally to artists. Just like a studio and quality materials are essential tools to carry out a work of art, Catherine proves to be the business partner all artists should consult. Thank you Catherine, I look forward to working with you again!" - Carol Bernier, Artist at carolbernier.com
