Hey! We're Emily & Natalie.


Artists (and bffs) on a mission to help artists feel a little less alone on their journey to creative success.

Here at Studio Mates we offer artists the tools, knowledge, and connections they need for an art career with less time searching for answers and more time doing what they love - making the work.

We're your biggest cheerleaders and our programs will help you navigate the ins and outs of life of an artist with support from a creative community.



You may recognize us from The Gathered Gallery, an art blog dedicated to sharing the work of artists who inspire us!  


During the six years we spent writing about art, showcasing artists of all disciplines, and building community, we felt pulled to share the knowledge we had collected along the way. We are so excited you're here and we hope to support you in your creative journey!
