By combining bold color palettes, freehand lines, and abstract patterns, she creates inviting works of art full of depth and dimension. Debbie's creativity doesn't stop at drawings and paintings. She turns many of her finished pieces into home decor items, puzzles, coloring books, postcards, and other objects and merchandise. She finds great joy in using her art to inspire creativity in others and to ignite their imaginations. Debbie is currently a member of Downtown Cleveland's City Advocates, on a mission to create an inclusive 24/7 global city and a welcoming beacon of talent that weaves Downtown Cleveland districts and surrounding neighborhoods into a seamless urban fabric. She believes art's value to the community goes beyond visual eye candy.

Jamie Regula, Silvatica Designs (Jewelry)
Silvatica Designs offers unique handcrafted jewelry made of wood. Our creative process begins in the forest and firewood stacks, where we intentionally seek wood otherwise considered defective. Qualities deemed undesirable in the forest products industry, such as knots, rot, and insect damage, provide the variation and character which make each piece unique.

Jessica Becker, Sweet Chick Florals (Home Decor)
Hi! I started out selling cut flowers as a backyard grower as a way to remember/honor my grandmother. As I began to expand my garden, I wanted to share the joy it brings me with others and started to think of ways to offer flowers in the off season here in Ohio. Outside of selling fresh bouquets, one of the things that I decided to try was preserving these blooms and to create pieces of art and home decor with them. I now offer various everlasting bouquets and floral artwork for the home as a way to preserve and share the flowers that I grow.

Ian Barrett, Fuego Fermentations (Food)
Fuego Fermentations makes carefully composed, unique, balanced and complex fermented vegan and gluten-free hot sauces and BBQ sauces. I was fortunate to have been recently given national recognition by winning a Good Food Award. I take great care and pride in the good food I make as well as the good ways in which I make it. All of my sauces are non-gmo and almost everything in my sauces is locally sourced. I work closely with Rainbow Farms in North Perry to ensure that I use the best ethically and locally sourced ingredients possible. It is important to me that I put as much money as I can back into the Cleveland and Northeast Ohio food systems. The passion I have for chilies and fermented hot sauce is evident in how tasty my sauces are. I offer a wide selection of flavor profiles and heat levels. I have some awesome mild sauces no doubt, but the trend is that more people want heat in their sauces. I take a lot of care dialing in that balance of heat and flavor, which other brands tend to lack. A stand-out of my sauces is the way I use fruit in them. I use just enough fruit to get the layers and complexity I want, and then I cut them off. Like a vocal harmony, there is a sweet spot you can live in, but once one of those notes oversteps its’ boundaries, then it is all off. In order to keep the high-quality standards of my products, inside and out, nothing is co-packed. All Fuego Fermentations products are hand bottled, hand labeled, and hand waxed by me proudly in Old Brooklyn, the community in which we live, at the Old Brooklyn Cheese Company.
