Katie Brennan Art Consulting

It feels like you’re supposed to be a certain kind of artist, right?

I’ve felt it too.

Heck, as an artist myself, I’ve learned the hard way that trying to be“right” kind of artist doesn’t really fit anyone.

Wouldn’t it be great to leave this idea behind?

Hi, I’m Katie.

I'm an artist and art consultant who has mastered a balance between art and business, productivity and creativity, and having a foot in reality and dreaming sky high.

I offer art and career advice from an artist and
art consultant who’s been there.

I’ve gone from a formal art education (BFA & MFA), working in non-profit land, sporting a starving artist mindset to an art career where I call the shots, make good money and have great opportunities that find me.

I believe that there is NO RIGHT WAY way to be an artist. There is only the way of being an artist that is RIGHT FOR YOU.

One where making money is a not dirty word.

One that balances artistic excellence with finding success in the market.

One that reflects and aligns with your values and beliefs.

I’ll help you shape a career and artistic practice that you can be proud of; one that not only pays you, but also feeds and inspires your artistic soul.

This course was perfect for me!

As a visual artist trying to diversify my income, and with no background in licensing, I learned a lot.

Katie broke the information down into very manageable pieces.

I loved how each section of the course came with a PDF that summarized the essential bits. I have a whole folder on Google Drive now with so many resources thanks to Katie!

I’ve taken several online courses that covered licensing.

The difference between those classes and Katie’s is that they only took us up to the door of licensing.

Katie took us up to the door, opened it and showed us through to the other side.

She showed us what exactly a licensing relationship looks like (beginning, middle and end), the contracts and what we could expect for payment.

She covered red flags to look out for and clarified copyright.
