Artisan Mentored | Meet Isatou

We are proud to introduce you to our second mentee!

You may remember a feature we did back in February of 2022 about our very first mentee, Jania Jones.  We had such an incredible experience working with her and couldn’t be happier to announce that we have a new mentee this year – Isatou Fatty!  Isatou has been working with us since mid-January and brings so much joy, curiosity, and creativity to our office.  Keep reading below to learn how Isatou found Artisan and what she is taking away from the Artisan Mentored experience.

What grade are you in?


What attracted you to the mentorship program at Artisan?

How it’s all inclusive; with brokerage, interior design, and furniture making

Which one of the three departments at Artisan – brokerage, design, or project management – interests you the most and why?

Design, because I love the whole process of completely changing a space especially the decorating part with all the finishes  

What’s your favorite subject in school?

Physics, Math, English ( I don’t necessarily like all these classes but the subjects are interesting)

What do you do for fun?

I read a lot, I love art (painting, sketching, drawing on my ipad), but I haven’t done any in a while.

Where do you feel most inspired?

Anywhere outside, whether that’s the train or the trees or the sky.

What is the biggest takeaway from your mentorship?

How many layers there are to everything, nothing is ever as simple or basic as it looks. There’s so much going on behind the scenes that come together and create a final piece, and all those parts are essential to the creation of the final product.
