Our Story

WHAT. is co-owned by husband and wife team, Jake and Hana Elliott.

Jake is an award winning public and abstract artist, focusing on sculpture, signage, and multi-medium painting. He boasts such accolades as selection to create a skylight exhibit in the Nashville International Airport (BNA) and invitation to participate as a member of the Nashville Metro Arts Council Learning Lab program. Hana is a marketer by day, and she brings her experience to help grow and develop WHAT.’s business and partnership opportunities.

Jake and Hana believe that to strengthen the community around us, we need to be creative about how we approach and solve issues. Because of this, much of the work that WHAT. does is focused on supporting artists and arts-based programs in middle Tennessee.
