New Shop!

I truly appreciate your patience during this lengthy process of moving my shop that has been well overdue (We moved this last March). The last shop I was in was shared with my ex-boyfriend for 10 years…I really underestimated how long it would take for this fresh start. I’d like to take the time to apologize once again. Also the reason for my lack of posting, lack of blogging updates etc…

So I’m almost caught up, I’ve had to teach myself some finishing techniques, like adding the final gloss that I used to subcontract out since I used to only stick to artwork.

Now that I am a one man show I feel more confident in all aspects, although, it has taken considerably longer than I planned, which I am truly disappointed in… However, it has made me much more self-sufficient and able to provide a better product and service all around. I’ve been getting things dialed in and feeling so great about it.

I am truly and gratefully appreciative for all of my clients who have been so generous, gracious and understanding during this chaotic time.

The absolute last thing I want is to have anyone’s project here longer than necessary. I want you to be able to enjoy it and make memories like I have and continue to do so with mine. To me these are not just pieces of art that I create but I also consider them as a family heirloom, for many to pass down to loved ones. It’s a lifetime art piece that isn’t limited to just appreciating but actually functional artwork. Making memories in the kitchen can be the best and most precious memories of all.

So now that I have worked through a lot of the setbacks I hope to be getting you a tracking number once I generate one so you can track your mixer when it’s on its way.

Once again thank you for your patience and support. I’m looking forward to you receiving your baby as soon as possible. Much Love, Nick

Here are a few images of progress when I first moved in that I’d love to share with you 🙂 It’s approximately 2200 SQ FT. An office, a large 17×20 front room, front bathroom and shop bathroom in the warehouse area. These images are older so a lot has been done since then that I have yet to take pictures of.

I practically left with nothing from the last shop. I had to get a new compressor, work tables, regulated paint cabinets, shelving, furniture, computer programs and equipment, new paint booth…paint, down to the most ridiculous thing as stir sticks. Most was left at my exe’s shop, some of which that belonged to me, but I didn’t take it. So I had a lot to get together to get going.

‘ll be sure to put in more effort again as I now feel I’m getting back into he groove of things. Hope you are all doing great as well!! xo

The “Big Easy” Custom KitchenAid Mixers

Ahhh, who doesn’t love the city skyline mixers? When the request rolled in for New Orleans, I was beyond thrilled. I knew two directions I’d like to go. Not sure which one my client would chose to run with…It was to my surprise they decided to do both.

I am crazy about the Jazz theme, but also love the quiet streets at night.

Of course we decided to go all out with custom argyle bands 😉
