Business Partners Nicole Chelini Ozment and Linda Oeffling have been working as a team since 2002. Serving together on the Board of Directors for a non-profit organization, the Illinois Youth Dance Theatre, they found that their talents came together in a unique and complimentary fashion. They founded and incorporated Chelini & Oeffling Inc. based upon their mutual interests in art and technology.
As C&O, Nicole and Linda pursue a creative collaboration in applied and visual art. After over ten years of working together, they have found their work to be very organized and artistic. As digital designers, they work with Adobe Creative Suite programs, WordPress website design themes, and Canon cameras. In addition to their day jobs as digital designers and more, their artistic collaboration meets at the intersection of words & images. Their most recent site, Outside Indigo, was launched in 2015 to explore this joint venture.
Linda holds a Bachelor of Science in Education degree from Northern Illinois University. She loves the meticulous work of website customization and graphic design programs. She also maintains an art glass studio, Rowanberry Studio.
