Since October (when the LLC for Sunrise Studios was approved), we have been scratching at the ground beneath our feet like the chickens that inspired our logo, tossing dreams for our personal ideas of success into the ground like seeds. This act of tilling and sowing has created the perfect foundation for the roots of Sunrise Studios to grow with strength and purpose.
Meet the Team:
Terrilyn Chance, Vision Consultant: Terrilyn came to Asheville from the West Coast to grow her roots in the mountains of Asheville. She has decades of design, consulting and healing under her belt. With a background in yoga and an innate ability to heal and listen, she is truly an intuitive guide on all levels and will be an amazing foundation for each client’s project.
Emily Nichols, Photographer: Emily is one of the most deeply soul-centered people I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. Her practice and teaching of Yoga, Qi Gong and Meditation shines through her photography, showing her deep understanding of people and the world around her. I want everyone I meet to have a photo done by Emily because it gives us all a chance to recognize that we are truly seen.
Alicia Scharpou, Social Media Manager: Alicia is a recent transplant from Wisconsin. Before landing in Asheville, she traveled America’s national parks with her partner Nick and their cat Luna in their van for 6 months. As an artist and musician, her creativity lights up the room and her energy is infectious. Our clients love working with someone so full of positivity!
Aiyanna Sezak-Blatt, Content Writer: Aiyanna, who on August 27th gave birth to the happiest little girl I’ve ever met, received her BA in creative writing from Sarah Lawrence College. With one (fantastic) published book under her belt, A Tangled Tree, and countless published articles for Mountain Xpress and Mother Earth News, she brings the gift of written word to our group. Always a sensitive listener, she has a beautiful ability to weave words together both as an orator and writer.
Alane Mason, Owner + Design Specialist: I hail from North Florida. I wanted to escape the hot sandy beaches and traffic jams and head for the hills (literally). After graduating with a bachelors in Graphic Design & Advertising from Flagler College and a short stint in the hills of the Ohio Valley, I found my way to Asheville, NC. It’s like my roots have been here all along and I just had to find my way back to them. My strength as a business owner and designer is that I want to know you. Yes, you. My passions are people • connecting • networking • and building businesses that create a stronger, more beautiful community.
All the best,
Alane Mason is the Owner and Design Specialist of Sunrise Studios. When she isn’t connecting with clients and building websites, she is most likely found lounging in her backyard, staring up at the sky or reading good book.
