Whether sitting together over coffee or catching up in DMs, community can come in so many different forms. Long gone are the days of catching up in the break room. For many of us, our days are spent behind the computer screen with little human interaction. Or maybe, like today’s guest, it looks like spending her days alone painting in her home studio. So much of entrepreneurship can be solitary.
Yet community, better yet relationships, is the secret weapon behind my own business growth, and the growth of so many of the big name entrepreneurs I’ve worked with. And it was no different for today’s guest, artist Katherine Corden. In our conversation, she shares how seeing other artists on instagram was the initial spark that helped her believe she could actually make a career out of doing art. She goes on to share the impact education and community has had for the continued growth of her company.
Meet my friend and my student, Katherine Corden.

Katherine Corden Bellisario is a fine artist living in Traverse City, Michigan with her husband and two young children. In her work, she is best known for her unique expression of the figure and use of color. She attributes much of her influence to her art teaching mother who started her in early art classes, as well as her background in studying anatomy while pursuing her first career as a physical therapist. Her lifestyle and creative work have blended over the years, and much like mixed paint, the two have become inseparable.
Katherine’s work can now be found in private collections and galleries throughout the country.
Painting is Katherine’s preferred way of meditating on, and responding to, the energy and nostalgia found in the nature and social culture around her. She paints relationships. The relationship between colors, between her and the paint. The relationship between family and friends, humans and nature. Community really. She explores these themes through a variety of subjects, with the common goal of inspiring you to feel transported and connected.
