Thank You Brenda

Thank You Brenda is a design project started by Joel Burns that makes custom printed canvases and acrylic paint. The project came from Burns’ interest in combining the approaches of art and fashion to making paintings that are attainable to a more expansive audience, one that perhaps could not afford it before. With Burns’ experience, it allowed them “to avoid the common tropes of anti-art while making something that legitimately stands on its own as a good product.”
