When Durango residents needed access to high quality art supplies, Linda Frazee stepped in to help make that happen in 2002 and then her husband Chris began offering custom framing services in 2003.
After almost 10 years they decided it was time to pursue other adventures. Another family took over the business, with Jeramiah Townsend at the helm in 2012. He continued to grow the store and streamline operations.
Seven years later, Matthew French-Holt purchased the business as Jeramiah moved on to pursue another passion. It’s still a local, family-run business. Matthew’s wife works in the business, and his daughter actively chews on her crayons (she’s still only a toddler, after all).
Matthew, an artist and entrepreneur, is passionate about art and is continuing to build a place that supports local artists.
