Chaz Vance


Hey thanks for dropping by!

My name's Chaz, owner of Technically Magic Effects. I'm an Art Institute of Pittsburgh grad (07) and I own a design studio in West Falls, NY. My interests are reflected in my work, I love entertainment, art, and the outdoors.

We're available for consultation, commission, and contract work. I'm always willing to discuss an idea. Give me a call or email anytime.
