Meet Board & Brush Park Ridge Owners
Alissa & Ian Robinson

When they first heard about Board & Brush Alissa and Ian worked downtown Chicago at an advertising agency and a commercial real estate company. Alissa fell in love with Board & Brush when she attended her first workshop. Her contagious excitement about the prospect of opening their own studio quickly latched on to Ian as well. In their pursuit of opening a studio, they were drawn in to the workings of the corporate office and found that their experience and ambition could help the Board & Brush corporate office to grow the brand across the country. While maintaining their corporate roles, Alissa and Ian are excited to have their own little piece of the dream in Park Ridge. They decided to open a Board & Brush because they wanted to give everyone a happy place to go. At B&b they can get away from daily life, celebrate with loved ones, or just experience something new while creating a personalized piece for their home that they will be proud to say they made. Alissa and Ian love to travel and have a bulldog named Ernie!
