 About Canvas ME: Co-Founders of Canvas Me, Jen and Matt Martinelli, are a husband and wife team set out to disrupt the world of beauty recruitment as we know it, and to empower beauty pros and beauty businesses everywhere to be seen and find their tribe. After more than two decades of working at a high profile beauty software company and working with thousands of beauty business owners, the dynamic duo grew frustrated at the lack of resources that beauty professionals had to showcase their creative work, achievements and goals. Similarly, they were unhappy about the lack of resources for beauty business owners in finding their next cultural fit to join their work family. That was the moment the two made the leap to create Canvas Me, the beauty industry's first all-in-one portfolio builder, personal  and professional development forum, and job recruitment platform, created from pure passion, purpose, and transformation. Today Canvas Me is home to thousands of beauty students, beauty professionals and beauty businesses across the country sharing their stories through their digital portfolios so that they can find and connect with their people and live out the beauty career of their dreams.
