(LOS ANGELES, October 24, 2017) – Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® is pleased to announce an exclusive interview with SharpenAir CEO/Inventor, Chad Elliott and Owner Britney Elliott. The interview will focus on a new way for airbrush artists not to worry about broken or bent needles when creating airbrush art.

SharpenAir is the world’s first hand-held airbrush needle sharpening device. When Chad Elliott, a world-renowned airbrush artist and entrepreneur, became frustrated with delayed and stalled projects due to bent airbrush needles, he did something about it. He knew that, oftentimes, artists rely on spare needles and usually have to order replacements online. The specific types of needles many airbrush artists prefer to use can’t be found locally in stores in many areas of the country. This issue piqued Chad’s interest in finding a tool he could readily purchase to get him out of a jam during projects, but he was unable to find such a product on the market. He started sketching rough drafts and designs of a simple, hand-held tool that could repair bent needles with precision and consistency. Once he had a solid grasp on how the tool should work, he reached out to professional engineers who were able to help him construct the first prototype. Finally, in 2016, SharpenAir was founded. The company is headquartered in Dallas, Texas.

Chad says that the SharpenAir device cuts costs and increases efficiency for artists. He explains, “The SharpenAir device extends the life of the airbrush needle. If you can extend the life of a needle eight times, that cuts your costs way down. Plus, it’s a time saver. And we’re constantly coming up with different ways to improve the SharpenAir product line. We believe that the SharpenAir is something that every airbrush artist should have.”

JL Haber, Vice President of Programming for Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®, is happy to feature SharpenAir. He says, “In airbrush art, the needle is one of the most important devices for the artist. But too often, these needles break or bend, leading to incredible frustration and lost time. SharpenAir is an amazing solution for airbrush artists everywhere. We are honored and thrilled to have SharpenAir on our show.”
