Hristina Panovska, Creative Director

With a dual degree from Columbia University in Photography and Architecture, and a Master's in Architecture from The Ohio State University, Hristina has focused her efforts on being a renaissance artist.  She is co-founder of Aperture Photography, an Architectural designer at Meyers + Associates, dabbles in documentaries, and instigated the Illume Collective.  

She shares an art inspired lifestyle with her husband, Paul (the other half Aperture and a musician), along with their two kitties in their 1920 craftsman home. She's best described as an instigator and conversation starter.  Her favorite things in life deal with travel, all things mid-century, and her amazingly supportive family.


Jenny Heagren, Creative Director

Jenny is a jack of all trades.  She has a background in theater and a degree in speech-language pathology, but her main passion in life is all things DIY / installations / visuals.  Jenny's worked as a visual specialist for companies such as Anthropologie and L Brands, and has an uncanny ability to make it all look effortless.

Her two favorite things in life include cooking with Dave and puppy cuddles with June. Her perfect day would go something like this: Drink coffee, make art, read books, take naps, pet dog. Repeat. 


Whitney Moore, Creative Director

Whitney can be best described as the human equivalent of a hummingbird.  The constant dabbler, she holds a Bachelors of Science in Architecture and has worked in architecture design, retail management, merchandising, visual display, and has overseen her own accessory line.

When Whitney isn't doing her visual magic with the team, she ian be found working as a photo stylist or renovating her 102 year old home with her fiance, Jeff, and their dog, Vinny.
