We understand the arts industry; first and foremost, we’re artists. We’ve spent a lifetime working towards empowering artists with the tools to harness their skills as creative entrepreneurs. Whether a musician, painter, actor, curator, freelancer, dancer and more—you are a creative entrepreneur. Our priority is education, providing all artists and creatives with the tools to help themselves grow and gain traction in the expanding digital world.

Around a third of online adults in the U.S. use Instagram, according to research from Pew. Among those ages 18-29, usage shoots up to 59%. In its 2017 survey, art marketplace Invaluable found that nearly 56% of U.S. consumers ages 18-24 said they’d buy art online, and 45% said social media is the main way they discover art.

Specific to traditional art, more collectors than ever are turning to Instagram to find new art. According to an April 2015 Artsy.net survey, 87% of surveyed art collectors look at Instagram more than twice a day and 55% check it five or more times. What’s more, 51.5% of these same collectors have bought artwork from artists they originally found via the app. Each purchased an average of five pieces by artists they discovered on Instagram.

In order to empower artists to help themselves so they may help the greater community, we focus on education. We provide tutorials and a “client portal” with ongoing content, plus access to our private Facebook group. In the future, we’ll also offer long-term courses in art, technology and media.

We're taking the first step to invest in a group that has been investing in our lives for generations. It's time artists harness their power and realize their worth. Get inspired with Art Inspires You @ https://artinspiresyou.com.

Artists have a great, long-term impact on our society that many overlook. They are the first urban pioneers; they invest in areas where no one has invested in years through living and working in these spaces. Over time, changes organically attract community, public gathering spaces and growth. As these places become successful, more people see this as a tax base; economic growth centers emerge.

Over the last decade, new studies have shown quantified data confirming the positive cognitive and psychological benefits of creating art for those with anxiety, depression, Alzheimer's, and general well-being. When a community’s people thrive, so does the economy.

We're taking the first step to invest in a group that has been investing in our lives for generations. It's time artists harness their power and realize their worth. Get inspired with Art Inspires You.

Our Foundation

Art Inspires You (@artinspiresyou) is a multi-platform brand and studio providing a digital community to empower artists with a voice in the digital world and beyond. Learn more @ https://artinspiresyou.com.

Launched in 2019 by artist and entrepreneur Geena Matuson, Art Inspires You is a multi-platform brand and studio providing a digital community to empower artists with a voice in the digital world and beyond. We hope our work enables artists to become successful in life beyond the digital and, in doing so, we aim to raise the perceived value and importance of art in our daily lives. 

In the future, our quarterly juried magazine will offer artist features, while our curated Instagram gallery will displays artist spotlights and sponsored posts. We accept rolling submissions through the "Submit" form on our website for both our magazine and gallery. The newsletter informs with announcements, art calls and top monthly posts.

AIY Studio (“Art Inspires You” Studio) is our art and design studio focused on collaborations and additional opportunities to work with artists and outside brands. We have big plans for the future; we're always looking for creative partnerships.

We take an equity and inclusion stance to everything we do. While we aim to shine a light on all artists, giving a voice to female and minority artists is one of our priorities. We're interested in branching out from the digital and into the real with events and exhibitions, and would love to hear about related opportunities. We're open to working with other brands and businesses, galleries, studios, museums, art guilds and collectives, venues, exhibitions and events, as well as educational and STEAM-related organizations and initiatives.

Our client services currently include professional website design/development and written content, with a focus on your brand. See more @ https://artinspiresyou.com.

Art is an essential part of life; it is a reflection of our society paving the way for social and political change. Dadaism is a multimodal “anti-art” arising from political rebellion, questioning the role of the artist and of society as a whole. French New Wave Cinema (Nouvelle Vague) exposed the art of relationships in our daily lives through storytelling that is simultaneously personal and political. The Fluxus movement began with the idea “life is art and art is life” and, now, we live and breathe art in all forms through our interconnected, networked world. Make your art stand out and inspire others with Art Inspires You.
