Jim has been in management in the hospitality industry most of his career and manages Canvas Junkies, the premier paint and sip in Reno.

“Both of us have lived in Reno since we were young kids, attended local schools:  Clayton, Billinghurst, Hug High, Wooster High, UNR, and have worked in the casino industry: Harrah’s, Peppermill, Eldorado, and The Grand Sierra for a number of years as well. We love to laugh, dance, and share good times with our friends.”

Canvas Junkies’ décor includes pieces of our lives, memories, and part of the local flavor. Our tables and bar are made from re-purposed Greenbrae Bowling Lanes that were located in Sparks, (cool).  We’ve included antiques, local gaming tables as well as memorabilia from our love of skiing and outdoor sports.”

The idea of Canvas Junkies grew out of Jim’s creative side in building and Kathy’s love of painting and the arts ever since her first paint and sip experience. We hope you enjoy our new adventure with us in one of the most popular and growing entertainment experiences happening today.  Thank you for coming to visit our new Reno location, we look forward to meeting you. Come on down to paint and sip!
