About Shane

Shane Strickman lives in Los Angeles, CA with her husband, Brad, and their two furry children.  (Piper, a Maltese pup and Leto, their chubby black cat.)  She works full-time in Visual Effects, primarily on feature films.  Some of her favorite credits include The Muppet Movie, Water For Elephants, and Fright Night (to name a few.)  While making movies takes up her days, Shane’s real passion is for building and home improvement.  Learning from Ana White, her handy step father, and quite a bit of trial and error, Shane loves taking on new projects and making a big impact in her home for a fraction of the price.  Most importantly, she hopes to inspire others to build and take on their own homes – one project at a time.

The name “Old Paint Design” comes from the 1953 western classic “Shane“.  ”I Ride an Old Paint” was one of the few songs that played during the film.
