Several of our blog posts have discussed the painstaking quality that goes into the work of a hand carved sign. For ten years, Grafixhouse Design Studio, located in Garner, N.C., has specialized in high-quality hand carving and painting. While talking with the owner Steve Kolacz, it’s clear he’s quite proud that almost all of his beautiful work is done by hand. These pictures are a great testament to the quality and effort that goes into a hand-carved masterpiece.
When Steve is working with Precision Board Plus he prefers to use wood-carving tools, sanders and a Dremel. He is also an accomplished airbrush and hand-painting professional artist who does illustrations for books and other art projects. Grafixhouse is a true standout design studio known for exceptional and timely work.
Steve got his start in the professional design industry attending the Genesee Center for the Arts and Education, and later transferring to the Art School at Coker College. While in college, Steve was offered the opportunity to play for a professional soccer team located in Florida. After spending some time in the pro soccer league, Steve made the decision to return to an art career. Honing his skills as an art director for an art agency, he took that experience and branched out on his own into what is today Grafixhouse Design Studio.
