"David Knezz is a deft and innovative craftsman. He is a lateral thinker who thrives on the challenges of theatrical prop making and produces apposite, finely finished and distinct models, masks and special effects. It is so rewarding as a director to ask for something special and to be awestruck and inspired by the creative response that David brings to the final creation of a theatrical event. His contributions reflect his ability to absorb the qualities of a production, his recognition of the practical realties and his acknowledgement of the parameters, budget, staging and so on. He is an indefatigable enthusiast and has been a fine mentor for younger aspirants in his craft."

"David Knezz Masks are inventive, novel, and marvelous. Every audience member thought that David's masks were the paramount part of our magical show. I can't thank David enough for his passion and timeless energy in this project. The masks were simply impeccable."
Director, Children's Theatre of Western Springs
"David Knezz combines artistry and talented craftsmanship in his work. We simply say, 'here's an idea that might be impossible' and David makes it happen. The use of masks with our students consistently helps them to gain greater freedom and flexibility in their acting. The mask is permission to be someone else, and when they take it off...that freedom remains."
Artistic Director, Children's Theatre of Western Springs
"David Knezz's artistry and dedication to his craft is absolutely solid. The custom puppet he constructed for my production of Around the World in 80 Days was simply amazing in its detail and in its likeness to the subject. He takes real pride in his work."
