About the ARTners

CO-FOUNDERS BOARD

7 Teresa Gutierrez, Pink Street Art

President

I am an Artist from North Highlands, CA. Starting out as a portrait artist in my late teens. “I am a portrait artist at heart” is what I always say. I love to paint people, however I also discovered that I love to paint murals too.  Mentored on Murals by my ARTner, Markos Egure from 2013 to present, I have completed 13 murals in Sacramento, CA, & 1 in San Diego.  Operated two art galleries in Sacramento and now on to owning and running the Non Profit 501c3 ARTners. I am also a retired state worker and a single Mother of two great teenage boys.  My purpose as a non profit owner is to inspire my kids and my community to be creative and to go for their dreams!!

Vice President

“What is an ARTner? That’s the question I live daily. An ARTner is someone who has ‘partnered’ with their creative action or creative lifestyle at a level to be recognized for their commitment. With any partnership, an ARTnership follows the same structured guidelines except ARTners adds the creative uncharted path of self investment beyond the standards. Staying focused, committed and driven for that final result is in our sole purpose and foundation of  understanding. Having these skills sets has opened opportunities in various employment areas, entrepreneurship and general survival to navigate through many challenges life brings using the art practices I’ve learned over the years. Art is more than lines, colors and shapes, it’s life; Beyond the Art.”
