The Story of
Welcome to Thackshack! We are Noah and Katie Thackeray - a husband and wife art loving duo. We created thackshackart.com for YOU and we hope you enjoy exploring our art as much as we enjoy creating it!
Thackshack started as a passion project after we got married in May of 2016. We both had a love of art and spent a lot of time drawing and painting together. We decided to make an instagram page to display our art and soon after our first post we had requests to purchase prints of our pieces!
We started selling by word of mouth, at festivals in Salt Lake City, Utah (where we're from) and on Instagram. Instagram soon became our #1 way to reach people but we've grown enough that we decided we needed a way to sell that was dedicated 100% to Thackshack!
Because we both have unique styles, our collection is just about as eclectic as it gets. We're happy to have some kind of art available for almost anyone!
We believe that art isn't just for looking - it's for feeling and understanding and sharing. Our favorite part of our Thackshack journey has been meeting the people who have enjoyed our art. We've been part of some very meaningful gifts and gestures. We feel honored to be a part of special moments and memories for you! Visit our blog for some of these stories.
Noah is my first love, our baby boy is my second love, and I have a massive five way tie for my third loves... art, good food, the outdoors, sugary treats, my extended family. Probably not in that order.
I grew up in two different parts of Salt Lake City, Utah and I absolutely love this tiny area of the world. If you've never been to Utah, you should probably put it on your bucket list because it's a pretty magical place. Skiing in the winter, boating and hiking and camping in the summer, and everything in between. Except the ocean. We have no ocean in Utah. A little secret about me though... I don't like the ocean! Ah I know. The horror.
Art is one of the best ways I know how to express myself. It is thrilling to be able to put down my thoughts, emotions and experiences on paper in such a raw, creative way.
I am grateful to be able to be on this Thackshack journey with my best friend, Noah. I hope our love for art and this business comes through in our work!
My name is Noah. If you've met my wife, then you know that I married up.
I also grew up in Salt Lake, although I lived in Cincinnati for a time and two of my brothers were born there. For the last few years, I've been living in Logan, going to school at Utah State University. I'm studying chemistry, so yeah, I'm a nerd. I love math and chemistry and biology and physics and the like. I'm taking computer science this semester just for fun.
When I'm not studying, I love to be outdoors. I love hiking and boating and skateboarding and camping and waterskiing and anything else outside.
I'm glad you made it to Thackshack, and I hope you enjoy the art you find here. Katie and I both love discovering new types of art that it's hard to get a consistent style, but hopefully you can find the types of art you enjoy here, and we'll keep making it!
