I met Zoe at a networking and coaching event hosted by the lovely Mikeala from She Almighty. We got chatting and Zoe's energy, humour and honesty about her new business Artistic Statements really struck a chord with me. I was super impressed with Zoe's knowledge of her industry, her drive and passion in setting up her own company and found talking with her super inspiring.

Artistic Statements Ltd - Zoe Allen - Founder
Tell us a little bit about your business.
Bridging the gap between clients with exciting spaces and artists with exciting ideas.
I commission artists and designers on a wide range of artistic interventions.
I bring to life exciting artistic concepts by uniting progressive clients with talented creatives.
What inspired you to set up Artistic Statements?
I was hugely passionate about supporting the arts and creative community; I wanted to provide artists with access to exciting opportunities and I wanted to transform public spaces through artistic interventions.
What has been your biggest challenge to date?
Spinning plates! As a one wo-man band I have to function as the Marketing, Sales, Project Management and Finance Department. Its not always easy, but I love the autonomy!
Describe your greatest success/ the thing you are most proud of.
Having the courage go out on my own. It’s not an easy decision but it was always in my heart to do it. Ultimately you know your strengths and you understand your clients needs, add bucket loads of passion and a lot of hard work and its winning formula.
What motivates you to keep forging ahead with your business?
I LOVE being immersed in the artistic community!
The company instagram account acts as a visual mood board for artistic statements within the world of architecture, design & fashion - I love blurring the boundaries between the disciplines.
I post most days, usually first thing in the morning. It keeps me motivated, and extremely excited of the potential of space.
Thank you so much to Zoe for sharing her story with us here at Cat's Pajamas. We always feel inspired hearing about the journeys of others.
