Kendle Design Collaborative is proud to office at the Ellis property on Cattletrack Road. Far from the typical office environment the Ellis property is an artist's sanctuary hidden among the trees in Scottsdale. Originally homesteaded by George Ellis in the 30's, the Ellis property is a serene refuge rich with hand-built homes and studios, 3 of which are now on the national historic registry. The entire property is full of history and art. Philip Curtis (cofounder of the Phoenix Art Museum) produced every major painting of his career here at the Ellis property. Visiting foreign dignitaries and artists frequently stayed here to be connected to the Phoenix art scene. Moreover, nearly any type of art one might think of has been produced here at one time or another; sculpture, paintings, photography, drawings, metal work, bronze work, ceramics, costuming, puppetry, illustration, dance, woodwork, race car and small airplane construction all have been done here. This tradition continues and the work of the resident and visiting artists is continually on display in the gallery. Kendle Design Collaborative is proud to make its creative contribution here amidst the peaceful setting that is the Ellis property.
