Michael Cosentino

Michael Cosentino

Master Craftsman

Michael Cosentino is a Master Craftsman and cabinet maker with a lifetime of experience in the arts. Michael will always remember accompanying his own father, a New York City scenic artist, to various jobs in the city in broadcast television scenic and prop shops. It was there that Michael was first introduced to the world of prop and set construction. In addition to his very successful career as a fine architectural woodworker, Michael contributes his vast knowledge of fabrication to the prop community as Artisan FX’s “Most Valuable Player”. He proudly crafted a number of “Trophy Box” props for the Showtime Television Series “Dexter” and now hand crafts copies of them on a very limited basis for fans worldwide. A father of four boys – he’s more than just a loving parent, but a true mentor and a master of his craft.

Jimmy Cosentino

Jimmy Cosentino

Owner | Creative Director

Jimmy is truly his father’s son! While all his wit and sense of humor comes from his mother, Judy, it’s his skill and passion for art and creation that comes from his father Michael. Jimmy has been involved in the creative arts since before he could even understand what to do with it!

A passionate fan of movie props and costumes, Jimmy enjoys working on some of his favorite movie props – in replica form – for fellow fans and collectors all over the world. A collector himself, Jimmy finds that just being able to paint some of these wonderful props helps to satisfy his need to buy them for his own collection. His wallet is very thankful.
