We are a team of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, development workers, change agents, and travelers. Tapping into a global community that shares a passion for promoting talent and helping others succeed, we happily began the journey to build the Artezanz Market.
Clare, Kevin, Leo, & Gabriel
Clare and Kevin have been married for 5 years and served together as Peace Corps Volunteers in Paraguay from 2015 to 2017, where their now 2-year old son Leo was also born. They currently reside on the coast in Ecuador, and recently welcomed their 2nd son Gabriel. Utilizing their experience in business and economic development, they travel as a family throughout Ecuador looking for talented artisans and sharing their unique skills with the rest of the world.
Rocío & Stephen
While Stephen was serving his Peace Corps Service in her home country of Paraguay, Rocío was living in Arlington, VA as an Au-Pair. They met three years later in the capital city of Asunción and the rest was history. With Rocío’s love of cultural art and Stephen’s desire to improve the lives of other’s through business, the two began traveling and discovering the country’s talented artisan communities.
