About Mila Ryk

Raised in a country that prohibited ones basic freedoms, there was very little chance to make your dreams come true. Unable to explore who I was and express myself creatively, I was forced to keep my dreams deep inside and lived a life that was not mine. Suddenly all that changed in 1991from the moment my family and I landed on the ground of the most powerful country, that I had always known as a far-far-away land, where dreams come true and where freedom was possible – America. It was a very difficult and trying time for my family and I. We worked hard and had to learn how to live a new life, but slowly, step-by-step I was walking toward my dream, a dream I never knew could become reality.

When I was young, while I was going to school, I enjoyed collecting magazines that were brought from foreign countries. They contained beautiful photographs of skyscrapers, highways, bridges, fashion shows and Vegas-like entertainment. I was amazed by the quality and design of those publications beautifully created by graphic designers.

Art has always been my passion but never a part of my everyday life. It was my dream hidden deep in my heart and after going through some learning stages in my life, I was offered a job at a publishing company as a graphic designer. I was given a chance to show my creative ability to a wide audience. Shortly after I was promoted to Art Director, I was responsible for the design and layout of a numerous publications from cover to cover, marketing and promotional materials. I was grateful for the opportunity to be able to work in a corporate environment and for several years in my life, I absorbed, learned and gained valuable professional experience. After the company was sold my position was eliminated. I began to think about what I had accomplished, what I wanted to do, what I was capable of doing and what my strengths as a designer were.

It didn’t take me long to set my dreams free that were sitting quietly waiting for the right time. I was confident enough in myself to start my own business where I would be able to combine both my passion for Art and Graphic Design. My company Art & Beyond Studio, Inc. was born in 2003 in Morton Grove, IL. I offer full graphic design services from logos, marketing materials, book/cover and magazines design and layout for publishers, CD/DVD covers and packaging/product design, trade show banners and web design, to anything and everything the clients may need. As a local graphic design company I am proud to be part of the Morton Grove community. I have been a sponsor of the MGFM (Morton Grove Farmer’s Market), which was a very big deal for our Village this past summer 2010. I was given the opportunity to design the logo and kiosk poster for the MGFM.

In addition to the graphic design services Art & Beyond Studio offers art classes for children and adults. More detailed information can be found on the company website www.art-beyond.com located on the Artist Corner page. I also organize short art events for local artists and would be happy to hear from artists who may be interested in getting exposure.

Finally my latest and most important news for artists who dream to be published, become recognized and find gallery representation—it is my helpful marketing tool as a first step to success — Art & Beyond Magazine, Art & Beyond Online and Best Living Artists of Today books.

Hello Everyone. I have been away for awhile,due to illness. I am back and ready to get back to work. Living in Calgary,Alberta, and at this point in time we are in a state of emergency. Calgary and Area is pretty much flooded and 100,000 people have been evacuated. So far I am fortunate and am high and dry. I am working from home office which is good. I am so happy that so far, there has been no loss of life. People have rallied together to help each other and many of us who are dry are inviting the flood victims into our private homes. Where there is no room centres have been set up and volunteers are helping out. The army is here to rescue those who cannot be reached.

I cannot recall in my life, ever have knowing a set of twins. Would you believe that in the past four months I have done wedding videos for three sets of twins. Not just twins, but identical twins. And I mean identical. Adding to that, I took another booking for a wedding video today and for the second time in a month, I am doing a wedding video where the brides name is Samantha and the grooms name is Chris.

Working From Home A Little Effort Leads To A Wealth Of Success What would you do if you no longer had to worry about money? Where would you go? How would you spend your time? If you’re like most people, you rarely stop to think about these kinds of questions. Too busy caught up in the day-to-day rat race, you’ve forgotten the dreams you had for yourself and your loved ones . . . or at least put them on the back burner for “later.” Meanwhile, your life is passing you by. Birthdays come and go. Days blend into weeks and months, with only the occasional vacation or major life change to mix things up. You know there must be more to life, but you’re not sure where to even begin making a change. Here’s a thought for you: what if you could work from home? http://www.lifestylebusinessonline.com

Hi everyone. I have just joined whoswho so would like to introduce myself. My name is Greg and I am from Brisbane, Australia.I am a videographer specialising in weddings. I will of course take on any other event that a client wants videoed. Filming and photography has been a hobby since as far back as 1968, but it has only been in the last 12 months that I have taken it up as a full time job. This was due to restructering at my last job that made my position surplus. Having worked in the electrical and electronics fields all my life, I thought that this was all I could do, then suddenly I realised - hey, i have a lifetime hobby that i enjoy and have learnt so much about - step outside the square you've been boxed up in all those years and do something different. If you wish to have a look at my website you will find it at www.alloccasionsvideos.com.au
