The Francell's, of The Odessa Francell's

Lawrence and Gina started out their life together in Odessa, Texas, helping each other through college and then University. They grew to love working with one another from their very first shared job in the Odessa College Phototography Lab. Lawrence and Gina would tage team the studio work. Helping each other out with getting assignments completed in Screen Printing, Paper Making, Ceramicas, Sculpture. You name it, the two could be seen together one assisting the other as to whomever's course it was. The pair has been collaborating ever since they began in Photography over a decade and a half ago. 

Lawrence ran a successful business as an Apple Computer consultant up until 2011 when the two decided to find a path toward the Texas Hill Country. Timing being what it is, the transition was a year and a half in the making. Lawrence took a job closer to their new home and the pair set out to find where they wanted to settle and put down roots to build a business. 

Little Francell's joined the picture, and future projects timelines were pushed, but now the pair is setting out on a new collaboration to build "A brand name, recognizeable for quality, craftsmanship and longevity." Lawrence desings and crafts, heirloom quality gifts. Gina is putting her background in Studio art and Graphics Design to work for our customers who wil settle for nothing short of getting it right."
