Joel Nichols is an entrepreneur by nature. Challenging the status and looking at things differently is his core strength. Joel and his wife Keersten, who serves as HR manager, started Apollo Design Technology in the basement of their home in 1992. It was the modest beginning of what has grown into a threesome of start-ups. In addition to Apollo Design, Joel and Keersten own Blue Pony and AVID Labs, all boasting rosters of first-rate talent.

“I am a true believer that opportunity has to be created, it does not just happen”.  If I had a core quote it would be “innovate or die”. Joel’s endeavors have won multiple awards for product innovation and customer service. Apollo Design holds the designation as one of the fastest growing companies on the Inc. 500 list. It speaks to the power of perseverance. As a boy, he hoped to become “a business person, pilot and inventor.” Today, he can say he has been blessed in many ways.

Joel attended Purdue University. Currently, he is an active member of his church community.

PAST Cuarto Jueves on Dec. 3rd, 2015 at Steel Dynamics Keith E. Busse IPFW Alumni Center**** 1528 E California Rd, Fort Wayne, IN 46825 **** 5:30pm to 8:00p.m.

Entrepreneur and lauded Artist, Beatriz Vazquez of BeatriZdesignZ.

“My work represents an awakening and admiration for Culture and tradition with a modern twist, an appreciation of paper, with all its complexities, simplicities and versatility.”

Papel Picado is a form of tissue paper cutting mainly used for celebratory religious themes and festivities.  Papel Picado is and has been an indigenous craft for centuries in South America and Mexico.  After learning the traditional method of making papel picado, I began a journey to innovate the art.  I began cutting paper, any and all kinds of paper grade, colors, textures and sizes.   Paper became my obsession.

I taught myself to cut using an exacto knife as if it were a pencil; I never outline any of my designs for fear of leaving pencil marks.  My designs flow directly from my mind’s eye onto the paper itself.  My work has journeyed into the fashion world, where I have created wearable paper art, from eyelashes to evening gowns.

Just recently, I have returned to creating children’s book illustration with incorporation of paper cut designs within each page.   Many of my stories are of my own childhood, growing up on the border towns of Texas and Mexico.  These cut out stories will be the focus of my solo show in the University of Orlando in Florida in June of 2015.
