Hi, we are Just Us,
and if you're reading this you probably want to know a little bit more about Us as a company and Us as individuals,
so, here we go!
My name is Christian Knox and for as long as I can remember I loved making art... well, mainly drawing. Art was something that came natural to me. As I grew older, I branched out to a multitude of mediums such as painting, pottery and sculpting.
I went to an elite movie effects trade school and earned an Associate in Specialize Business Degree. There, I received a balanced education in general production fabrication, and in 2008 I moved to California to begin my career. I have since worked as a lead sculptor and fabricator at a number of shops, sculpting anything from toothbrushes and mouthwash bottles to toys and masks, statues, specialty mannequins and even large props for film and television.
My work resides in museums and exhibits around the country and archives around the world for today's largest entertainment companies. In early 2016, Natalie and I began Just Us with a simple question: what if it was Just Us ?
And I'm Natalie Knox! I am what you would call an artistic Renaissance woman. Like Christian, my artistic gifts developed at a young age. I was unsure of a career in it until I studied with the renown monumental sculptor and Hillsdale College professor, Anthony Frudakis. In the Spring of 2012, I graduated with Departmental Honors, a B.A. in Art and German, and my own established art business, NK Studios.
Moving back home to Southern California, I furthered my studies and career in sculpture through a special effects and animatronics program at The Character Shop, where I became a key effects artist in the TV/film industry for over two years. By God's creative ways, Christian and I met at a mannequin gallery, and our combined talents and love for all things creative soon made it clear:
We were totally made to be Just Us !
So now, here we are! And, it's Just Us:
two talented artists, who love God, love people, and love art.
Just Us is something new, but as you see we are not new to "the business." We are two well-rounded fabricators who are up for any job or challenge, no matter how big or small, and we look forward to working with you to bring your ideas to life.
