Edvard Munch’s The Scream. Van Gogh’s Starry Night. Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss. These works are indisputable masterpieces, but prints and posters of them are ubiquitous enough to make them tiring. For decorative artist Alexis Carberry, one of the joys of her job is creating things that no one has ever seen before. “People can’t even fathom the things I can come up with for them.”
To create each singular masterpiece, Alexis kicks off projects with in-depth consultations. The client can present polished ideas or just a color scheme, theme, photos of the space, or a favorite Rorschach blot. In response, Alexis sketches several ideas until she and her client decide on the ideal design. Wielding high-density, fume-free acrylic paints, she then sets to work on walls, canvases, or furniture. Depending on the size, projects can take up to several weeks to complete; but if properly maintained, they can last a lifetime.

During his time in the Air Force, Dean Schwaner studied HVAC systems, which he parlayed into civilian life with Apache Air Solutions, named after the Apache helicopters he worked with. Dean oversees his HVAC business with the same sense of duty and obligation he honed in the military, and so he and his staff take to homes with professionalism and focus. They inspect and repair furnaces, heaters, and air conditioners in the home and install new ones if the old are beyond repair. Whether it's a broken system or a unit that simply needs a tune-up, Apache's techs take the time to inspect the heater or A/C unit and get it up to speed so homes stay cool in the summer and ward off vagrant snowmen with warmth the winter.
