When Fencing Became an Art

For many, building fences is a job, but to me, building fences and become an art. I grew up in New Mexico where my father was an artist and built custom furniture. At the early age of 12 I began to follow in his foot steps.

My father taught me that building a piece was more than just the functionality of it, but to appreciate the process of building it. Like art, it took creativity, patience and a keen eye. He taught me that art is more than a canvas and paint.

After moving to Los Angeles in the early 2000’s I realized that the fences I was building were more then just a structure to secure and provide privacy, they were pieces of art. This transformation of thinking changed my business forever and we haven’t looked back.

I grew up building custom furniture in Taos, New Mexico with my Dad. We did it all. When we moved west we liked the weather and decided to build outdoors. Over the years we met a bunch of skilled craftsmen who like making fences and gates with us.
