Barbara was either seen with a paint brush or a softball in her hands while growing up on a farm near Abilene, Texas. She received a degree in Art from McMurry and taught art in the public schools until her retirement in 2003. Her belt buckles are a combination of her knowledge of what makes a good design and her love for Western style as well as the European flair. Since retirement she has enjoyed painting as well as sculpting. Her designing and creating the belt buckles here on display is now her artistic passion. She hopes you enjoy wearing the one-of-a-kind buckle of your choice for many healthy years to come.
