Hello! We are Topher & Sara Mack, owners of Artist Couple LLC! We are both full time professional artists based just outside of Austin, TX. Both of us graduated from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, with a Bachelor of Fine Art in Photography and Printmaking. Together we have a decade of art education and over 15 years of professional experience. We have dedicated our lives to our passion, making the world a more beautiful place. Whether it's through our documentary work with non-profits around the world, or a mural that turns a child's bedroom into their own imaginary world, our mission is to take our knowledge and skills and help create beauty while also spreading creativity and positivity. As we pursue our dream of creating the highest quality art and photography available, we also have a place in our hears for supporting local businesses as well as being as economically conscious as possible. We try and include those values into our business by buying locally whenever possible, collaborating and building a stronger sense of community and reusing/recycling as much as possible.
We met in 2014 on a study abroad trip to Thailand & Cambodia were we went from strangers to roommates all in one day. As artists in different majors and years, we randomly got assigned roommates in Bangkok Thailand. Once the exploration of Thailand commenced, sparks flew, laughs where plentiful and our journey truly began. Traveling around Southeast Asial was only the start of our life-long journey together. After graduating in 2015, we decided it was time to quit our 9-5 jobs and create our own path in life. After moving to Austin, TX in 2015, we started our business and have been loving every minute of it.
From apartment renters, to full time RVers, and now currently in the process of building our own home and studio in the heart of the hill country, we have worked hard to make our dreams come true. We hope someday to create an Art & History Gallery/Museum Non-Profit and continue learning new skills and creating work we love. When we're not creating, we enjoy backpacking and hiking, traveling to new places and tasting delicious food and drinks, and gardening and building beauty on our land.
We look forward to growing our business even further and whatever our future holds, we know one thing; we have built a business that we love and will continue creating work, sharing our skills and making life a little more beautiful for many years to come.
