Early stories range from Conni’s first recollection of changing the trim color on her Grandparent’s freshly painted house with her early “leaf rubbing” technique, to the many walls, presents, party invitations, student council posters, bulletin boards and similar “art projects” (or favors), she and her partner share as part of their “growing up artists”. Since those early days, both have worked with a variety of clients over the years ranging from the music industry’s; The Judds, San Antonio Missions Baseball, Luby’s, Plaza Theatre of Wax to many restaurants in the San Antonio and Austin area.
