About the Art Studio

 My gift of life. It's gratitude for every happenstance of the past that brings me to a moment of justice. It's awareness - or is it realization of one's capabilities and limitations. It's concentration - or is it an easy sensing of the universe ? It's seeing a mystical power for good in each and every human being. -Robert R. Francis

Received the ornaments. They are absolutely adorable & unique... exactly what I was looking for. Will keep your website on my radar for future purchases. Thank you & Happy Holidays! R. Young

It was a wonderful experience dealing with Mr. Francis. He was so kind and took a lot of time to find the exact product for the recipient of my gift. He also did a great job in making the piece and I will be sure to come back to his website in the future. H.Beck

Furthermore, the company is second to none in personal attention, responsive communication, and on time delivery.

I would highly recommend Robert Francis Studios to all my friends and family. R. Barton

I was really pleased with the quality of their products. I purchased the ornaments and they are just beautiful, they will become heirlooms in our family. When I had a slight problem, they contacted me very quickly and went out of their way to help me. I would recommend them to everyone.

After receiving my order from you today, I just had to e-mail you to compliment you on your work. The Santa, snowmen and wizard ornament are fantastic!!! I will be giving them as Christmas gifts (if I can let them go!) and know the recipients will enjoy them as much as I do. Happy Holidays! Thank you so much, K. Wolfe
Just wanted to drop you a note to say that I received the carved wooden Santa Claus with Christmas Tree I had ordered, and I couldn't be more pleased. This is a gift for someone with an extensive collection of carved wooden Santas and who is very, very particular about what gets added to the collection. I know he is going to be very pleased with this one.
Thanks. R. Scott Brigham
I was given one of your Santa Claus carvings (Western with Candy Cane Guns) for Christmas and I just love him. What a great addition to my Santa collection which now numbers 220 hand carved and/or hand painted wooden Santas. I have been collecting since 1982 and always enjoy adding an innovative and well done Santa to the collection.

The Christmas Gift store worked with me to create a Belsnickle which was exactly what I wanted. On my original inquiry, I was not even sure they would make custom pieces. Fantastic listening, co-operation, and very prompt service!
