“When you say F*%k it... good things start to happen”
Elliot and Josie are a creative and dynamic couple who have worked in the events and promotions sector for over 15 years combined. Successfully running nationwide pop-up stores and product launches for various well-known brands.
Working in the events industry can be a lot of hard work but great fun, and no two days are ever the same! They love working together, yet due to client demands, it became normal to spend days and often weeks away from home and each other.
At the beginning of 2019, Josie was made redundant. They were both totally devastated by the news, but, instead of feeling down they focused on turning this negative situation into a positive opportunity that would allow them to take control of their futures and destiny.
“Happiness is a journey... not a destination”
The couple sat down and created a plan of action, by mapping together each other's values, skills, goals and ambitions.
After lots of deep soul-searching (sobbing, binge eating & dragon's den watching) they both recognised the importance of combining their life’s purpose with tackling the general wellbeing and mental health in the world.
“Art is another form of meditation and mindfulness”
The vision was to relieve people of their daily stress and anxiety through engaging, social, art events.
ART SIPPERS was born! A fun new paint and sip experience where anyone can join to socialise, meet new people, unwind and feel inspired to unleash their inner creativity through various art classes.
