John and Janice are life partners as well as artists that have collaborated in similar endeavors for years. John led a more physically active lifestyle prior to a motorcycle accident that limited some of the activities he enjoyed. After a long period of recovery, he yearned for other outlets for his energy and creativity. This led to him artistically challenging himself, and thus started the creative process. A year ago, this energy transformed into crafting birdhouses.
John's bucolic and bold designs blend perfectly with Janice's colorful and vivid style inherited from her previous beadwork. This harmony of contrasting form results from observations of local bird niches, and stimulating their creativity with current popular or seasonal-oriented themes.
Some of their materials include lightweight, but high in strength balsa wood, wine corks from wineries from various parts of the United States, and paint in every color of the spectrum. Their style, while rustic in nature, is constantly challenged as they like to persistently reinvent themselves.
John and Janice have high hopes to further expand their small business by targeting uncharted lands outside the United States, try their hand in designing birdhouses with special/seasonal themes such as sports teams, holidays, etc, and researching to further understand natural bird habitats.
