Joshua & Kristen Kanter for JK Custom

Artist Bio

Joshua began his artistic career in high school building sets for school performances in Brooklyn, NY.

After receiving his BA in Fine Arts from Franklin Pierce University in New Hampshire, Joshua relocated back to New York City to continue his career building sets for the film and television industry.

After years of building sets Joshua began honing his fine furniture and cabinetry skills.  In 2004 Joshua and his wife Kristen relocated to the Berkshires and formally established JK Custom Furniture & Design.

Working out of his home shop he takes pride in being able to design and construct unique pieces. Using a well seasoned artistic eye he strives to provide quality craftsmanship with an artistic flair.

For Joshua, every discarded piece of wood is a missed opportunity. He thoroughly enjoys taking a discarded piece of lumber and running it through the planer to reveal its’ long life of age and patina.

Joshua & Kristen are thrilled to be a part of Art & Industrie’s premier show.
