When I was a little girl I had big dreams about having a career that I loved and also made the people around me happy! I loved art and science in school. Of course, my caring parents guided me more towards science for my career choice. My inspiration for science has always been discovering/creating new things with our knowledge of what we are given. I became a high school science teacher. I loved it but wanted more!
My husband, Lance, and I moved from a big city to the mountains in Tennessee during the summer of 2016. We are blessed to have two young boys; Gatlin, 14, and Oliver, 8. They are amazing kids and have always wanted to help make others happy as well. It has been an exciting journey to be able to show and teach them first hand how to put together a business in a new area. They have seen us struggle in different ways both physically and mentally.
Now that the dust has settled a bit, they are proud of our studio because they have helped contribute to our success through a little sweat equity of their own. We have taught them through hard work, determination and dedication your dreams and goals can be accomplished. My husband was also a school teacher and then owned a carpentry business. Board and Brush combines all of our passions into one fun and exciting business!
We inspire our guests to be creative with an emphasis on building confidence. When guests leave at the end of our DIY workshop with their radiant smiles and proud wall worthy creations, it brings me that joy I was seeking as a child! It’s AMAZING! You don’t have to be a creative or artsy person to attend one of our classes. We will guide you through every step from distressing, sanding, staining, building, painting and waxing. We will build your artistic confidence, while you sit with your friends listening to some good tunes sipping on some beverages of your choice! (Yes, we are a B.Y.O.B. establishment.) You may bring in your favorite snacks and drinks.
Board and Brush Sevierville has online registration for open workshops at https://boardandbrush.com/sevierville/. We are also a trendy venue for private events such as birthday parties, bachelorette parties, team building events, family reunions, corporate parties and more.
We look forward to your visit with us! Be inspired! Get creative!
