Ahhhh, yes, our very own Fabian. This guy? He's a magician-artist. He can conquer anything "Adobe." Recognize the painting? That's because he's created work for over half our rooms in Austin. Plus, he's in a band and wears cool hats.
Honey Thompson, owner and artist of "Toast Ranch Creations," works closely with Emily Basham-Hoelscher in designing the rooms. Art extraordinaire, Honey creates many of the eclectic pieces you'll find in our rooms. Oh, and your post card you found on the kitchen table?
