"Catherine was incredibly prepared for our discussion and started right off with things I could improve on with my website, etc. all to bring me more traffic and improve my mailing list numbers. My main focus for the call was to discuss ideas around drumming up P.R. for myself and she was filled with innovative and wonderful suggestions tailored right for my work and audience. The time went by fast and I had TONS of notes by the time it was over! I've been able to implement the things she suggested and have a plan to implement the P.R. strategies we discussed. Catherine even emailed me some other ideas she'd come up with the next morning! I was very impressed at how invested she was and how much she cared. Her suggestions weren't just for ANYONE, they were specific to me and my goals. I highly recommend her services." - Megan Carty, Artist at megancartyart.com
"Catherine’s customized approach was exactly what I needed. She provided me with actionable ideas that I had never considered that proved to be new revenue streams. The first two months of a unique workshop that I created is almost full, which doubles my instruction income with half the time and effort invested. I have more time and resources to create my own original artwork for galleries and exhibitions. Most importantly, I now have a flexible strategic and tactical plan which keeps me focused on my goals. Catherine is responsive, knowledgeable, experienced, enthusiastic, and fun to work with. I recommend her to any artist who is serious about increasing his/her art business." - Norma Torti, Artist at normatortifineart.com
