Christine Grieves
I'm a cloudless optimist tickled “yellow” to be able to do what I love in the city I love, Cleveland, Ohio. My fondness for all things creative, started well before the ripe old age of five and continues today behind the studio walls of OhG Design. I received a BFA in visual communication design from Kent State University, worked for a world-class public relations firm, leading up to creating a successful design business. Most recently, I’ve become an author and illustrator of a children’s book, That’s Sooo Yellow, inspired by the discovery of my personality matching my favorite color. Though my favorite color is yellow, I do have an appreciation for all things colorful.

Judith Sagan

Judith graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 1987 when Desktop Publishing was just starting. I worked in a studio in Boston, Massachusetts for 9 years and left that job to have my one and only child.  Worked at Sherwin-Williams doing color consultations for customers and  began selling my digital photography when I moved to Cleveland in 2004. In 2014 I enrolled in TRI-C to learn Photoshop and Illustrator. After learning Photoshop, I began shooting images for my book Spike loves Cleveland. In 2015 I enrolled at TRI-C in Early Childhood Education so I can teach preschool age children. A few years ago I asked myself, what do I want to do with my golden years, and the answer was to work with the most creative people on the planet, four year olds. My creativity blossoms when I am a part of children at play. I expect to graduate next Spring.

 

"Spike Loves Cleveland" sums up the best places and landmarks to visit in Cleveland. All these hot spots are featured in Spike's new book!
