it’s our {work} anniversary!

Today marks one full year exactly since Chuck joined me here at February 13 Creative. (And by some kind of cool serendipity, this is our 13th blog post. Go figure!) I’m happy to say the transition has been pretty darn easy. Maybe that’s because it’s been a long time coming.

You see, Chuck and I go way back. We met in 1981, in Isla Vista, California, as students at UC Santa Barbara. I was a freshman studying art history and Chuck was a sophomore studying philosophy (aesthetics) and English. And we’ll have another milestone anniversary this year. October marks our 25th year of marriage.

Betsy and Chuck circa 1983. Yes, we’re in costume, but this is pretty much how people actually dressed at UCSB in the early 80s.

From the very beginning, a deep interest in art, artists, and creativity has been at the center of our relationship. So it’s incredibly satisfying (34 years later!) to be combining our shared passion with our individual talents and expertise, to create a business together that’s in service of creative ventures like yours.
