Check out Kristyn ZumMallen and Denise Clark’s Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kristyn ZumMallen and Denise Clark.

Kristyn was in customer service and training for ten plus years and had a passion for DIY projects. She made similar signs on her own for fun and knew Board & Brush Creative Studio was the perfect fit for her! She has been married to the love of her life for over seven years.

Denise, also married with three wonderful children, has spent her career in upper management, leading a team in the training & quality assurance department. Board & Brush was the perfect opportunity for her to open her own business. B&b empowers women to get out of their comfort zones and learn something new!

Denise & Kristyn are the proud owners of Board & Brush Glendale & Board & Brush Surprise.

Kristyn and Denise worked together for seven years when they decided to peruse their dream and open up Board and Brush, Glendale. Two years later, they opened up Board and Brush, Surprise. We love meeting new people and building relationships with our existing customers. To watch someone’s design start from raw wood to wall-worthy art is something that brings joy to our hearts!

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
At Board & Brush Creative Studio, our goal is to turn you into a “DIY master” by educating you to understand and appreciate the beauty of raw materials—the wood, the knots, the color variations and the simple imperfections that will make your project unique. Distressing, sanding with the grain, and staining are a few of the important steps we will guide you through to make your personalized wood sign look as though it has been with you for years—like a vintage heirloom.

To attend a class, you must register on our website. We prepare all of our materials 72 hours prior to class.

Our classes are instructor-led and are typically 2.5 to 3 hours long. We walk you through the process from start to finish, and at the end, you will leave with a fished product. You do not have to have a creative background to attend a class. If you make a mistake, there is nothing a little sandpaper cannot fix!

We also offer specialty projects such as canvas pillows and doormats.

We do, Kids birthday parties, adult parties, corporate events, fundraisers, bridal showers, and so much more! You can attend a workshop alone or with a group of friends. We are BYOB after 4 pm! Classes after 4 pm are for ages 16 and up.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
Each month, Board and Brush release new designs. All of our available designs are listed on our website, under gallery. I usually recommend that people follow us on social media to see the designs that customers make. We take pictures at the end of each class and post them on our pages. Our customers come up with the most beautiful colors and painting techniques.
