JOSH SEYMOUR

OWNER

In 2015 Josh wanted to pursue a dream to facilitate collaborative creativity to benefit the community, but also needed to provide for his family. So, with his background in painting and a creative drive, he began an unnamed painting business. In 2017 the unnamed company came to be known as Artisan Reef, as it encompassed the dream of where Josh wanted to go. A thriving reef is filled with many kinds, shapes, and colors, but each plays an important role in sustaining the ecosystem. In the same way, Artisan reef grows its ecosystem with employees and clients from all areas of life, to benefit one another. His time spent in theater, playing music on stage, and assisting with an art group, continue to influence his creativity in the workplace and his family life. Josh’s reef starts with his wife Jen, and their 4 kids who love to cook, share meals with friends, and explore new trails. Together they are constantly striving for new ways to give back to the community and lift others up.
