MEET OUR FOUNDERS
This is us! We are Monica and Kelley, Founders of Creative Box Studios.
Monica is a natural-born artist who has been creating art since she can remember. She grew up in Monterrey, MX, where she absorbed the colorful culture that is reflected in her work today. Monica moved to the US with her sisters when she was just 15 years old, and after graduating college, she rented her first art studio in Austin to keep her passion for art alive. She was able to tap into the local art scene and meet many of the artists she works with today.
Kelley moved from California to Austin in 2017 after graduating college and found her home at atxGALS and The Cathedral. She is inspired by art and creativity’s affect on mental health and is passionate about bringing joy to others. She loves building community, being outdoors and learning about new cultures. As a serial dabbler, she is finds herself discovering new passions regularly.
The idea was born at the peak of Covid-19 when our sister-companys, The Cathedral and atxGALS, were hurting from the effects of the pandemic.
Like many other businesses, we were forced to close our doors to the public only 5 months after launching. With hopes to keep our passion-driven business alive and continue to support our artists, we decided to shift our in-person workshops to a virtual format. Little did we know, these workshops would allow us to continue to spread joy and inspiration through art, touching hundreds of people across the Nation.
We are so excited that we get to expand our support to women artists across the U.S. and can’t wait to see what you create!
