ArtInspired began in 2000 as Marilen Crump's company that combined her freelance services as a dance instructor, web designer and photographer. It was a one person operation that commenced soon after Marilen's graduation from Sweet Briar College where she self-designed her major in the potential to become a Creative Arts Therapist.

Fast forward to 2010 when ArtInspired, LLC was incorporated to expand into a facility that housed Marilen's many professional skills and interests along with her best friend and husband Kenny. Together they manifested a goal to provide a larger platform to service their local community in Yorktown, VA. The first studio was located on Victory Blvd. which opened in January 2011. Aptly named "ArtInspired Studio One" it was the catalyst to expand the wellness programs for convenient access as well as an art gallery that would be viewed daily by all patrons.
FREE POWER TALKS began straight away and has been a central part of ArtInspired's mission from Day One. (Click here to found out more about POWER TALKS) It is a way to share love, encouragement and support to whoever may be seeking it.
Personal growth and a desire to include more instructors evolved into a decision to relocated by the New Year 2013. The Crumps were able to find a great new location on Production Drive - Yorktown and also expand annex locations on Main Street and off of Denbigh Blvd. - both in Newport News.
