Bog Scraper

I decided I wanted to be an artist at six years old. Originally, I just wanted to sculpt, paint, however, found its way into my life. For the last few years, I have combined the two.  I discovered not that long ago, just how fortunate I was as a young artist. My family supported and encouraged my artwork with supplies, lessons, and trips to galleries and museums. The business of art is the most problematic aspect of art for me. Read more>

I am a brand strategist and content marketer and owner of Soul Story Creative. Through marketing content, we create a connection in the digital world for our clients. What I know for sure is that it takes two things to succeed in business today: 1) show up authentic and 2) leverage the power of the Universe to do the heavy lifting for us. Read more>>

Tiffany Castle

I got started with photography in a pretty unconventional way. I have been very involved in the Denver Irish community since I was a child. I began playing the bagpipes at the age of nine. Being involved in the community gave me so many opportunities. One of which was to travel to Ireland three times in 2012-2013. I decided before my trip, I wanted a “nice camera” to document my time, the people I meet and the adventures I had while I was there. Read more>>

I began the idea of our clothing line, with a daily inconvenience. After work, running errands, and chaperoning our children to all their activities, I couldn’t wait to get home and take off my bra. Having four boys growing up in our home, I would swap out my day bra for a bralette and throw on my husband’s old tattered t-shirt. It wasn’t until the boys went to bed, that I could slip out of my bralette and let them free. Read more>>

I played. As I got older, I noticed that I was johnny-on-the-spot with what I noticed about people’s inner world, it made people uncomfortable. Because I seemed to know or understand things about people without them sharing it. I learned to shut down this gift just to be liked. When I worked as a makeup artist in Hollywood or as a yoga teacher when I went about my spiritual journey. Read more>>

Jackie McKenna Houle and Molly McGrath

When we met, we were freelancing individually. As we worked more and more together, the thought of owning our own design business became the topic of more and more conversations. Now that we’re about a year (and a half) into owning McGrath + McKenna Design group here in Denver, CO., reflecting on the past has taught us some powerful and light-hearted lessons about business ownership.

Nichole Emerson

I worked as a Marketing Manager for a couple of years after spending five years with my first company. I was just looking for some stability, but I really missed shooting. So I decided to head back out on my own again. I love the outdoors, so I started focusing on outdoor editorial images, sporting events and outdoor lifestyle. During the start of this new business, a friend of mine asked me if I could photograph her wedding. Read more>>

Ashley Melville

We wanted to open a one-stop-shop for health, wellness and fitness where everyone is welcome to become the best version of themselves! Before opening the studio, each of us were teaching independently at the same off-site location renting space individually. After we began training together, we recognized that our ideals were the same and that we wanted to develop a studio environment that would emulate our ideas to create a dance and wellness community in Denver.
