Todd Carignan is our very talented resident artist/framer who is an accomplished painter, portrait artist, calligrapher, and framing designer.
Mr. Carignan was born and raised in Wilmington, NC. His parents had him in private art lessons at eight years old, where he really fell in love with drawing. After high school, he attended the Savannah College of Art and Design, where he received his BFA in Sequential Art and a minor in art history.
He has worked as a cartoonist, illustrator, concept designer, portraitist, and fine artist. He experiments in many mediums and subjects, but his true passion is oils. Todd teaches Drawing at the Louise Wells Cameron Art Musum's School and teaches Painting and the Art of Comics classes at DREAMS of Wilmington, a non-profit after school arts education program for children. He also teaches workshops on drawing and painting the human figure as well as portraiture.
This past April he was the fine arts judge for the Wilmington Art Association's annual Juried Spring Art Show. He has won multiple awards and has art in collections all over the United states and Germany. He currently exhibits at Manifestationz Art Gallery in Cary, NC. He has his art studio in the Wabi Sabi Warehouse, part of the Independent Art Company, in downtown Wilmington, NC and can be reached at Townhouse Art & Frame Center where he works as our framing consultant.
