Mara Natkin and Gloria Ramirez are co-owners of Artery Ink LLC, inspiring healthy eating and living through art–including greeting cards, calendars (“Inside Your Insides”), prints, coloring books (“Show Me Your Guts”), and t-shirts. Mara and Gloria met working as servers in a downtown Milwaukee restaurant after earning their art degrees, Mara in Milwaukee and Gloria in Mexico City. A series of deaths in their respective families and Gloria’s serious health scare motivated them to change their diets and start exercising. Wanting to inspire others to live healthier, they combined their love and talent for art with their interest in wellness, and Artery Ink was born. Learn how Mara and Gloria come up with their ideas, create art, and manage a business, together.
