Meet Martiel

Martiel_snapshot_11Hi, I’m Martiel Beatty. I am a fiber artist, expert blogger, author of Blog Notes, and GIMP Wizard. I am the founder of Sewmantra and I started the Academy because when I began my creative, online business in 2011 I couldn’t find an affordable, knowledgeable and effective program that supported handmade, indie-artists.

I’ve built, consulted and mentored companies and individuals on their blogs, businesses, and websites since 2000. I’ve worked with people of all talents and skill levels and if there is anything that holds true for each and everyone of them it’s this: if you have the passion to make it happen and the attitude to match you can and will achieve what you want for your business.

I hold degrees in Anthropology, French, Drafting and Project Management. I have been working in fiber arts since 1986, graphics since 1998 and Social Media and Blogging since 2000. I work from my home studio just outside Washington, D.C. on the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Bay.
