Episode Info:


Katia Kyte is a fine arts artist originally from Russia but now living America, painting mostly in oils. She’s a delightful woman, who splits her time between a gallery worker, her art studio and her young daughter. She talks openly about how important personal development is to her art journey, as well as continued learning.

“Do you want to be the best out of the worst, or do you want to be the worst out of the best and be able to learn more?”

 Katia talks to us about:
  • How visiting democratic Germany led to her studying languages instead of medical science, like her doctor parents.

  • How she took the time in America, as a young au pair, to ask herself what she really wanted to do with her life, which led to her exploring art as a career.

  • Personal development as a way to improve your art

  • Time management as a working artist with a young child, and how learning how to say no, how to prioritise and how to stick to a routine works for her.

  • Her social media preferences

  • Gallery representation for artists and why she’s in favour of it

  • What inspires her art works

  • A peek inside her studio

  • Her secret technique to being ok with a messy studio - apparently it works on a messy house too!

  • How she integrates her young daughter in her art life.

  • What she listens to while painting

Words of Wisdom:
  • Just breathe.

  • Trust yourself and be yourself.

  • Trust

Resources mentioned in the show:
  • Brene Brown’s books

  • Julia Cameron’s “The Artists Way.”
