Hi, my name is Jill Kennedy and my husband’s name is Michael. We have always planned to have a business where we could work together, utilizing my artistic skills as well as his technical/mechanical ones. I am the registered owner of our business, making it female owned. Our business is located in NW Arkansas and was established in January of 2016.
We are proud to be senior Americans and we only buy US made steels for making our products. Michael has designed and created several unique tools he uses in fabricating our products. We believe in AMERICA FIRST!
Michael “retired” me (encouraged me to stay home) and leave the corporate world behind some years ago. Looking back it was a very good thing for my long term happiness and well being. Michael was forced to retire in October of 2015 when his technology position was eliminated. We combined his skills of engineering, machinist, and computer technology with my graphics art and office management skills and embarked on our journey to manufacture fabricated metal art that would be both beautiful and practical for customers. We have found that our hooks are exceptionally popular.
Our art is custom designed by me, I do not use “canned” or pre-packaged clip art. I customize each piece through either customer requests, customer submitted designs, or designs of my own. I can manipulate any part of a design to the customer’s requirements. There is no cost to have us work up a custom design for you.
We have licenses with the University of Arkansas, University of Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State University to offer designs with their logos and mascots. We can make other universities and sports team’s items in metal, but only in a 1-on-1 special order basis – we call them custom orders. And custom orders are ALWAYS welcome.
We take our metal art to a few craft shows each year. When our website is more popular, we hope to discontinue our craft show attendance. We have been married for over 25 years and feel we are still on our honeymoon. Our lives were destined to be – Together Forever!
