Embrace Creatives was crafted from a single question.
As a professional artist and creative business coach, founder Andrea Bogart worked with her artist clients to find business clarity and identify their ideal commercial prospects, whether galleries, retailers or interior designers. On the flip side, working with commercial buyers she would search for an array of artists to fulfill their projects or opportunities.
She’d waste days rummaging through search engines and social media, unable to find a robust, creative business directory. Instead, Andrea ended up with a handful of website links, a few contacts, and a headache. Worse, there was no way to know if her research yielded high integrity prospects that would make her clients’ job easier.
Was ANYONE she found communicative, respectful, or trustworthy? There was no way to tell.
Then one afternoon an interior designer asked her,
“Would you mind putting together a creative, talent directory for me? I need artwork for a few clients and don’t have time to search for artists I can trust.”
At that moment, Andrea imagined Embrace Creatives.
- An easier way to connect millions of artists and commercial buyers.
- A place to find a wide variety of exceptional artwork, fine craft and creative products including furniture, fiber and home goods.
- A robust directory of artists that buyers are happy to work with.
- A space to connect with others in the creative world who can guide your growth.
