Sometimes aging is a good thing… Once upon a time we were long-forgotten Texas hardwood remains left to the ravages of time. Luckily, our artists recued us and restored our natural beauty through their creative skills. Some of us are even embellished with carefully placed semi-precious inlays, stones or antlers. Now, as one-of-a-kind sculptures, we are presented for your personal enjoyment or as a unique gift.
Betty Cottar and Linda Wilson are native Texans who have been friends for decades. They live and work in Montgomery County, Texas. While accompanying their husbands on hunting trips to South Texas, they discovered a natural beauty in the pieces of Mesquite wood found in various locations around the ranch. Their artistic endeavor to enhance what Mother Nature left behind has been a creative journey resulting in unique sculptures acquired by collectors of native Texas art.
Cottar and Wilson have had solo shows in Montgomery, The Woodlands and San Antonio, Texas. They have also completed custom commissioned pieces for corporations and philanthropic organizations across the country.
