Chris and Amanda here. Elegant Square Studio is the name of our little homebased art studio and online shop. We have an adult son, daughter, grandson, and furbaby. We work as a team and our daughter even gets involved sometimes. While we both have our own interests, our work is usually a result of collaboration. We work mainly by commission but please visit our online shop to see what we have available. Doing business with us invests in your local economy instead of a large corporation and sends a little girl to gymnastics.


We are working artists who also support other working artists and heroes in our community. We have made it a mission to help others by doing what we love every day. We have developed a fundraising opportunity. We only extend an invitation to local organizations that truly give back to our community in meaningful ways. Contact us if you are interested and we can set up an interview.



Chris is a United States Navy Veteran who works full time and creates in his off time. His goal is to create full time. Chris is reluctant to call himself an artist but has work in a local gallery for viewing and for sale. His work consists of pyrography, cigarbox guitars, and some woodworking. Chris is usually working on a commission that combines his talents. Visit his page to see his work and check out his shop to purchase already made pieces. You can also contact him anytime to create a custom piece.


Amanda is a full time award winning artist. After getting her BFA at Nicholls State University she went on to start an art program at Riverside Academy. Following the birth of her daughter she took time off and is now back in the studio. Her specialty will always be fine art medium format photography. She does portrait sessions for all occasions as well. Another favorite medium is body casting, bellies and hands specifically. Amanda has recently started to explore more painting and design. You can check out her "Love Notes" and "Fridge Art", which are the newest additions to the shop.
