As artists, our life orientation is focused on the creation of beauty and a search for meaning. We strive to create work that abounds in hope, creates a sense of continuity, belongs in time and to a place, and responds to people's innate need for beauty, soul, and community. Our lifestyle, as well, is a reflection of these ideas, focusing on our love of family, friendship, the integrity of our work, a strong sense of belonging to a place, a sense of our heritage as people, and the discovery of new ideas and places that fuel the next steps in our creative ventures.
