We have just been featured in the October issue of New Mexico Magazine. This two page spread talks about us as artists and how our beautiful surroundings inspire us. It shows off our Shangrila II rocker, a dinning chair and the Hemesphere table. It was very exciting to have this article done on us and it came out better than expected. We had a lot of fun with both the writer and photographer when they came all the way out to our place for this article. The calls and emails are coming in from all over the U.S. and we can’t wait to see what it brings.

-- Scott NM,

Recognition well deserved Scott, and the artist classification is certainly appropriate.

Congratulations Scott. It is always good to see a fellow New Mexican recognized for their beautiful work. I will have to get a copy. I have to say that magazine usually does a great job of showcasing artists work.

I have been meaning to write to you for a while now just to touch bases and see if there might be a time I could come up to your neck of the woods and visit. I have a sister who lives in Grants, so of course it would be a two fold trip. But I also didn’t want to be in the area and not come drool over your work if I had the opportunity.

If this would be acceptable to you send me a PM so we could discuss times and such further.

Again, congratulations on being honored.

Congratulations; I hope that it brings you a lot of new business.
