Teresa on her unique horn hide chair visiting her true Texas longhorn friends.

I had this thought: with all the craftsmen, artists, and creative individuals that I have met since we came to Texas in 1982, wouldn't it be great to put them all together and reflect what I have come to appreciate as the "Spirit of Texas? " So, I collected names and numbers and when the opportunity opened itself, I just jumped "onto" it, at full run, never giving a backward glance.

Those whose work I had admired I found, and then I went hunting: to markets, fairs, festivals, and hollows, searching for only those to which my inner sense responded. I had a focus, a criteria, if you will. I wanted individuals who had an artistic sense, an intensity about what they made. I wanted studios or small shops with hands-on craftsmen, and each item had to be made right here in this varied and vast expanse of ours.

People with a passion, creating with pride, in this place we call home: TEXAS!

There are many talented people to be found, but I truly think I have gathered some of the very best: an eclectic group making wonderfully unique pieces. And as I take stock, I realize that most are indeed true Texans. The rest of us, we're "Texan" by choice!

As passionate as I was in creating TEXAS TRUE & my catalog: photographing, writing, laying-out, editing, and putting it all in one piece, it has been great to watch all these artists appreciate one another's work.

And together they become: "TEXAS TRUE !"

So, open and behold TEXAS: where tradition and history carry on even in today's work; where the West still has a place in the décor and lifestyle of our homes; where the cowboy, his trusty horse, and our symbol, the longhorn, still stand tall.

For a piece or an entire room, you'll find just what your searchin' for… at TEXAS TRUE!
