Canvas Kite Designs consists of our two-person team; John McCracken and Devin Cobleigh-Morrison. Combined, we bring over 35 years experience to the community.

Devin started flying in 1995 and has been involved in kite design for over 10 years, releasing various kites through the Sky Burner and Premier Kites labels. John has been flying since 2005 and has also been involved with kite building and repair for over 10 years. John has also sewn boutique sails for Sky Burner Kites.


John and Devin were both mentored by Jon and Marieanne Trennepohl of Kites and Fun Things, Sky Shark Tubes and Sky Burner Kites. Without their patience, guidance, high standards, and blessing to create this company itself, none of this would be possible. It is our deepest intent to credit our progress and creation of craft, partly to the people who give us, and the kiting community, so much.
