A combination of family name, art, science and experience. Combining all colors of the rainbow, in pigment form, the color brown is created. We all have different tints or tones of that color and like a cookie, when all of our special ingredients come together, we're able to create beautiful works of natural, God blessed art. We like to say that we are, as one, individuals in an ensemble, kissed by the sun at varying levels and our goods are enhanced by the heat. Oh yeah, and who doesn't like a cookie or home made anything? Warm, sweet, nostalgic...lovely!
