About Signature Canvasmakers

Who We Are

Chandler Clark established Signature CanvasMakers in 2005. His career began while serving as a Senior Chief in the U.S. Navy in New Orleans, where he worked pro bono at a sail loft to gain experience in the marine canvas industry.  Upon his return to Virginia and the civilian world, he partnered with an established canvas shop and further honed his skills.  In January 2008, Chandler and his wife, Charlene opened their own shop in Hampton.  Charlene spent over 23 years in Marketing in the Hospitality and Tourism industry before joining Chandler to manage the business.
