The name Novato came to me while sitting at our dining room table painting shoes two years ago. It was the perfect term to describe our new artistic business in our home of Bellingham, WA.
My wife Kourtnei and I made the decision to open the shop at the beginning of 2015 and it's been a relative mad dash since then.
After 5 weeks of build-out (some messy process pics included above), we opened on April 3rd and have been loving our little business ever since.
We plan to continue to let it develop and evolve in whatever way it decides to and truly can't wait to share with you what's coming. We're proud to offer a careful curation of local artists (Bellingham, Portland, Spokane, and more) from paintings, to drawings, jewelry, and other great gifts.
If you haven't had a chance to visit us at the shop, come by and check it out We've got some really great stuff from local and PNW artists now and always.
Our online shop is in the works but if you're interested in custom pieces, be sure to contact us!
