We’ve been helping artists “Take-It-Easel” for more than 12 years

More than a decade ago, my mother, painter Rosalie Nadeau, purchased the last Gloucester easel made by the fellow who built them for Emile Gruppé and his sons and the Gloucester School of Painting. When other painters saw and desired the easel, my father, Thomas, began building them in his spare time. After many attempts to improve the original design, the only modifications he made were to use stronger materials.

I took over the easel-building business on Cape Cod during my summer breaks while studying Biomedical Engineering at Trinity College in Hartford, CT. I have always enjoyed the entire building process, hand forming the custom metal parts, shaping and waxing the wood, and assembling each easel one at a time. Now out of college, and working a full time job... .

I am committed to continuing
the tradition of hand crafting the Take-It-Easel,
and to my knowlege,
no one else produces anything like it !
