Mentorly is the very loved brainchild of two women artist-entrepreneurs who, through personal experience and pain points echoed by hundreds of artists, sought to make arts mentorship more intentional, accessible, and immediate. They created Mentorly to bridge the gap in education, offering artists ‘real world’ guidance and, ultimately, contributing to a more vibrant art community. As working artists, Mentorly’s co-founders united over a common pain point.
Katherine, however, experienced the gap from a different perspective. “Founding a video production company right out of school and building it for the following 8 years was extremely rewarding, but also isolating at times. I often felt I missed out on the opportunity to build a network of peers and more importantly, experienced and like-minded professionals that I could look up to for guidance. What I really needed was a mentor.”
Both set out to fill this gap by building a platform that would foster creative exchanges and overall unite and strengthen the art community.
