Creatura House is a Boutique/Gallery dedicated to not only aesthetics, but actual philanthropy! 

Our mission is to create a gorgeous space where one can find the best new contemporary art as well as a mix of enticing decor goods, all influenced by the natural world in some way. We source things that reference the animal, botanical, cosmological, and mineral worlds in an interesting, artistic, even abstract way. 

Creatura House was founded by Kirsten Anderson and Mark Long in December 2017. The idea for the art gallery/boutique came after a sabbatical Anderson took after closing her successful art gallery, Roq la Rue, after 18 years. During that year long break, Anderson shifted priorities to helping animals and started a 501(c)3 non profit called Creatura Wildlife Projects, geared towards helping assist already existing non-profits dedicated to helping wildlife. While the non-profit world was fulfilling, Anderson missed aspects of the art world and also had found a new fascination in eclectic home decor and the concept of creating home sanctuaries. Mark Long (previously a silent partner in Roq La Rue) signed on and Creatura House was born. Creatura House is a blend of all these passions, a mix of art and philanthropy, a way to support artists as well as wildlife, and create and invigorating, exciting environment in which all those interests can thrive.
