Real Financial Support for Artists and Authors


My passion is creating art, writing and healing. If any one of these is your passion you understand that for most of us our income isn’t consistent and often doesn’t come at the same time as the bills.

Imagine a life where you can live your passion and not have to worry about finances. Imagine, for example, you have enough money and more to cover all of your expenses so you don’t have to worry about selling art or books or having enough clients. This is more than possible, it can be a reality.

In the past I have had to put my passion on the back burner to get a 9-5 job to pay the bills. I was always dreaming about the day when I didn’t have to work and I could paint as a full time business. That day never came.

I did find a way to have financial support that more than paid my bills. It allowed me to travel the world studying with a master teacher, teaching a technique that I wanted to learn. I didn’t worry about buying the supplies I needed when I needed them. You don’t have to pass on opportunities to show your art because you don’t have the entrance fee. I didn’t have to decide if I was going to spend my money on food and necessities or supplies. I always had money when I needed.

What was the secret?

I think the best vehicle for anyone who feels they have a mission as an artist, author or healing is a Relationship Marketing Business. It is the kind of business model that you can work part time and leverage your time so you have a lifestyle that allows you to live your passion at the same time.

Why I decided on having a Relationship Marketing Business in the first place:

1-I set my own hours and work as much or as little as I want.

2-I am my own boss

3-I can built teams and share the work

4-There is no limits on the money I can make

5-I can build my business on the internet and don’t have to leave home.

6-I can travel when and where I want

7-I can study with experts because I have the money.

8-I can buy the best quality supplies

9-I don’t worry about having money to pay my bills.

10- I can focus on doing what I love

11-I have money to share with family and friends.

12-I have money for shipping, advertising, showing my art.

13-I can pay off credit cards, student loans, mortgages and cars.

Those art just a few reason for choosing a Relationship Marketing Business.

I know from experience that this works. I have been successful working this kind of business very part time. I built a team of 80,000 people working with me and have made as much as $11,000 a month. It also gives me another avenue to help people have health and wellness which is another of my passions.

If you would like to live a creative life by your own design take a look at the business I am building an get back to me to talk about how you can do this too.

Showing Your Work


After many years of not showing my art I am looking for places to show.

My current show is in a coffee shop right now.  Coffee shops are fine but I don’t know how much real interest you get there. I noticed that a few of my business cards were gone so there is some interest.

My current show is based on the art I painted while recovering from all of the heart issues. I have 32 images that all focus on the heart, many of them contain an anatomically correct heart as part of the image.

My intention is to have them showing in hospitals, clinics and wellness centers. They hung in a wellness center for three months before this and there was a lot of interest there! I want to be able to do presentations about my work and my healing process.

Where do other artists show their work?

Galleries of course, but they may be hard to get into and not as accessible to buyers as other places.

Banks, restaurants, coffee shops, music venues, art festivals and fairs and other spots routinely rotate artwork from local creatives. Approach them with the same professionality you would a gallery.

You can view the art in this show on line HERE

The World is Waiting for the Authentic You.

Let the world see who you truly are. There is NO ONE else like you. There is no one to compete with or compare yourself to. Share the gift that only you can share.

It all comes down to self love. Once we truly love ourselves life gets easier and we can shine and share our authentic self.

I mean truly love ourselves not just give lip service to it. Oh it’s easy to say, “ Sure, I love myself” but saying it and really feeling it deep within and believing it are two different things.

Can you love yourself when you “screw up”?
Can you love yourself when you are sick and really need your love?
Can you love yourself when you feel alone?
Can you love yourself when you can’t pay your bills?
Can you love yourself when your world seems to be falling apart.

Loving your shouldn’t be based on outside circumstances.




Creating is High Play


Art making for me is an exploration and an adventure.

I don’t just sit down and put pen and ink, pencil or paint on paper or canvas. It is an immersion experience.

The visionary artist drop into their inner landscape, open to its message, gather it up and bring it back.

And then magic happens…interacting with the medium. Watercolor for example. I have hundreds of colors to choose from, because I paint with watercolor pencils and just exploring the color palette is high play. Next comes laying down colors next to each other and watching the energy that forms where they meet each other. That energy gives life to the piece. There is also the play that happens when water is added. Watching things unfold into the final image is exciting too.

The whole process is a magical experience engaging all of my senses. I get into the process and go into timelessness.

Do you know that in the last 25 years of art making I have never thrown a piece away and started over? I trust my process so much that I know that whatever happens is inspired to be the way it comes through. There are no mistakes. Things that are perceived as mistakes are where Spirit enters the work.

I wish I could trust my life that much.

Visionary artist vs Intuitive Artist


Many people call themselves intuitive artists and after exploring this concept watching numerous YouTube videos I believe we can all be intuitive artists.

What I was really looking for in this exploration was what is the difference between an intuitive artist and a visionary artist? There is a big difference. The only similarity is they are are both intuitive processes.

The intuitive artist is guided to move paint around the canvas, allowing intuition to guide the process. There is no plan or preconceived idea. Whatever happens, happens if you are true to the process.

The visionary artist, on the other hand, is also using intuition, but has dropped their consciousness into the visionary realm of images, beyond collective consciousness, to bring new vision forward to the world. When it is viewed by someone it is understood at the soul level.

This is a completely different kind of painting. It takes the ability to not only open to this inner visionary realm but to be able to paint it into reality. One must have highly developed inner sight to see what others don’t see and to paint it so others can see it.

I am blessed to be both an intuitive artist and a visionary artist. Intuitive art can be taught. I am not sure Visionary art can be and if it can it would be a life long pursuit. One would have to both develop their ability to access the visionary realm, trust what they see and learn how to put into an image what they have seen, and learn the painting skills to do that.


Giving up was not an option

Katelyn Mariah, Empowering Health


I am writing this to remind myself…

There was a point in my health journey where I had not only lost my health but also my savings and my livelihood. It was about 8 months in that my savings was gone, my successful career was gone and all of my credit cards were maxed out from basic living and medical bills. This was probably the most stressful time in my life.

But something kept pulling me forward. The pull was my purpose. My purpose this lifetime has always been to create art that had a positive, transformational impact. Writing, which is part of that purpose came later. I write from the same place as I paint.

This is to say that when I was at my lowest lows, I still could paint and I still could write and those two things pulled me through. I could also see there would…

I thought this was how the brain was supposed to work…

Katelyn Mariah, Empowering Health


Its my nature to think differently, challenge the status quo and come up with new, innovative ways of looking at things. I have done it since I was a child, it’s just my nature. I always felt there were more than one way to look at things and I was going to find them. That is what made me a good therapist. It is also what makes my art so unique.

I just thought that was how the brain worked. I didn’t understand that it was a unique gift, though over the years people would tell me I thought differently. I always thought to myself, doesn’t everyone?

About 5 days before I had the first of three heart attacks a friend did a interview quiz with me that was supposed to hone in on my Why.  The results were that I naturally think differently and challenge the status quo. From…
