About the owners

Janet Vittitoe

Janet Vittitoe bought and restored the building to the amazing studio it is today *Sadly Janet passed away on November 23, 2015, one week before we were scheduled to open.  It breaks my heart that she is not sharing in this experience with me.   The Art Studio will continue in honor of Janet, my Angel in Heaven!

Previous Owner: Jodi Quakenbush

I was born and raised in Council Bluffs. My husband and I feel Council Bluffs is the perfect community to raise our son. I currently work for the City of Council Bluffs, as the Deputy City Clerk. We are passionate about helping to make the 100 Block in Council Bluffs a fun and entertaining district. Canvas Concoctions adds another variety of entertainment to bring people in the area.

Stephanie Kenealy Owner/ Manager/ Artist 

I was born in a small town in Nebraska but I grow up mostly in the Carter Lake and Council Bluffs area. My family and I currently live in Treynor Iowa. I am so passionate about the art and culture of Council Bluffs and our surrounding communities. I work for Council Bluffs Community School District at Thomas Jefferson High School. I am a TJ Alumni and I attended Iowa Western where I was a cheerleader, my other passion is cheer and dance. I have four children Kaydence, Bradley Jr., Joslynn Joyce, and Gunnar James. My husband Bradley Sr (Lewis Central Alumni) and I have made it a goal to make the studio a part of the community. With my Art and teaching background I am able to offer so much more than a sip and paint.

Thank you for taking the time to read about the studio. We hope to see you soon!





The only Sip and Paint in the Bluffs! Located in the Park Building! We are more than Canvas and Paint.
