Kelly H'Doubler-Crowder, Owner/Designer/Curator
In 1984 Kelly received a BFA in Theatre from MSU, then worked as Set Designer at the historic Landers Theatre for numerous productions including Sleuth, Mass Appeal and Ladyhouse Blues. Kelly moved to Los Angeles in 1986 and opened REWIND, a vintage furniture store in Venice, landed a job assisting proficient Production Designer Bill Bohnert, best known for the Ed Sullivan BEATLE Arrows, which led to her first Bernie Brillstein job as Prop Assistant on ALF. That furry snowball effect created countless opportunities along with a cache of tall tales and fuzzy memories.
Kelly has been a member of IATSE for 28 years working in the Art & Prop Departments on great classics such as News Radio, The Larry Sanders Show and as Propmaster for 96 episodes of ELLEN, the sitcom, before choosing the more noble profession of Cruise Director for her family of four. This is where Kelly discovered the unbridled LOVE for children’s artwork. Encouraged by Set Decorator and beloved friend, K.C. Fox, Kelly and her daughters created artwork for various productions and soon developed a business to support two college funds.
