Growing up in the 50s on the Texas plains influenced my core beliefs. A simple way of life based on faith first and family second gave me strength and confidence to create friendships and ideas that linger to this day. My mom’s love of needlework instilled in me a curiosity for creating handmade goods. My dad’s love of nature and road trips influenced the basis for my designs. The spirit of the plains lives on in my son’s creative efforts. His art inspires a few of our designs. Check out John’s art at: http://www.lowplains.net.
