Welcome to the Barefoot Swan Art Studio!

We are a husband and wife team, and have been self-employed in the creative arts for over 20 years. Bruce is a general contractor, and enjoys working in wood and other materials; Sandy is a designer, illustrator and screen printer.

Our projects are educational, functional and fun - to help people enjoy and learn about the natural world around them. We are multi-media artists, and enjoy exploring new materials and techniques!

Here is some of the work we do:

Bird houses, Bee Houses, Bird feeders and Yard Art made from recycled and organic materials.

Our hobbies include hiking, gardening, travel, birding and astronomy - especially chasing total solar eclipses. These interests have taken us to Zambia, Fiji, Tanzania, Jamaica, Egypt, Canada, Tahiti, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Mexico, South Africa, the Caribbean, and (most recently) China. International influences often inspire our work.

We live in the California desert near Palm Springs, with our 2 cats and a yard full of native wildlife.

We welcome commissions and can provide estimates based on your unique requirements.
