MORE ABOUT US

 

Konanz & Co. (formerly known as Dessart Studio) was formed by hybrid artist/designer Jennifer Konanz as a hands-on, material-based art & design practice. We specialize in traditionally hand-painted signs, including gold gilding. Although this is our focus, we are passionate about all forms of traditional craft and are always looking to adapt our expertise to a range of projects whether it be a window sign, a wall mural, or a commissioned piece of art.

Hand Painted Signs


Hand Painted Signs

We paint our signs the traditional way, by hand, with a brush. We're equipped to paint in oil and water-based mediums, indoor and outdoor, any size, anywhere... almost.

Reverse-Glass Gilding


Reverse-Glass Gilding

When only the finest sign will do, go for gold. Each square of leaf is laid by hand, one at a time. Did I mention that we've learned from the best?
