Today i am launching a love letter series called “celebrating cleveland creatives” on thursdays, i will invite a cleveland friend to tell us about 4 business owners that inspire them. this is not only a way to give a little love to each other, but also hear about all the cleveland creatives tucked away out there!
i’ll go first...
1. i’m always inspired by nicole dzurko of @revivalbodycare
i met her many years ago when she owned an adorable children’s accessory line. over the years, i have watched her switch gears and launch a skin care line with drive, vision and beauty. her photographs are stunning, her products amazing and her bravery - inspiring! she gets out there, no holds barred and she is killing it!
2. i have been inspired by ron and cyndy nicholson of @rvdcleveland
forever! they are the pioneers of repurposed, recycled and redesigned furniture and home decor in cleveland. this shop is where my love of vintage began so many years ago. i am inspired by their vision and unique vintage design and the fact that they stuck true to it for so many years - especially in this new world of diy. i think i have something of theirs in every single room in my house!
2. i am always inspired by the vision and cohesiveness of @cuyahogacollective
as an artist, my brain goes in a million different directions with a million different ideas (hence the 10 layers of paint on my walls) the same has happened with my business. in year number two, i will reign in my brain and try to create a more collective grouping for my brand. cuyahoga collective has stuck to their brand, their vision, their colors and their photographs since day one. they are classy and polished and cohesive. really beautiful wares!
3. i am inspired by the support and community that michelle burke at @lymanlife
has offered me. from the start of @coastalcleveland
michelle grabbed me by the hand and showed me the way. she has spent hours with me as a fellow business owner… and now as a wonderful friend. i love community and support and friendship and michelle emits all of these to the world! i am inspired by her graciousness.
