Studio 41 Creative was created by Natalie Grinnell Ray, who started her career in marketing and public relations in Sacramento, California where she was the Marketing Director & Lead Event Planner at Michael Greene & Company, a designer jewelry company specializing in high-end and celebrity designs. Desiring to further develop her career, and live closer to the beautiful Pacific Ocean, Natalie made the move to the city by the bay, San Francisco, and began work as the Public Relations and Social Media Account Executive at F.W.I.W. Creative (Now Farinella, Inc.). In 2010, Natalie assembled a talented team of award-winning designers, writers, and artists to create a very skilled, experienced, and elegant company, Studio 41 Creative.
In 2014, Natalie moved to Asheville, North Carolina with her husband, Justin, a musician that plays both locally and internationally, and teaches at UNC Asheville.
Natalie and Justin fell in love with the arts and culture of Asheville, and decided it was the perfect place to settle in and raise a family.
Studio 41 Creative is a new marketing agency that is focused exclusively on building the brands and communities of those creative businesses we have grown to love so much.
