Aris is a lifelong award-winning creative with a background in all the arts. She found a love and a talent for creating things early in life and never let it go. For her, it was never a question whether or not she'd make it as a professional artist, it was always a question of how.
There has long been a gap in the world of the arts establishment and the creative industries when it comes to the "business side" of things. After a long entrepreneurial freelance career, she found the startup world when her team won a Startup Weekend and was entered into an accelerator program with TechStars, one of the most prestigious organizations in the space.
She took the lack of representation in the artistic space of the startup world as an invitation for her to become a leader and start a movement that will hopefully teach artists once and for all that they never have to starve or question their value in the world.
She founded Artapreneurs™ and now teaches independent artists and creatives worldwide how to never have to choose between their art and their income again™ by starting, building, growing and scaling sustainable creative careers and art businesses.
