Our much loved business was started 26 years ago by two adventurous Mum's. They had a passion for local creativity and saw the need for a space to represent these talented individuals and retail their products. That philosophy has stayed with us all these years and has been embraced by Belinda Fergusson, another hard working and inspired business woman / Mum / adventurer, who is taking Creative & Brave into new and exciting territories.
One of the most exciting parts of owning this wonderful business is being exposed to a constant flow of creativity and inspiration. Year after year we are amazed by our suppliers, their ability to evolve and produce beautiful new works regularly is a testament to their talent and hard work ethic. Being surrounded by these pieces has the same effect on us. Creating little shrines to creativity and infusing your home or workspace with art can have a transformative effect on your life.
We know you love to support local because you are investing into your community and neighbors. Through you we are growing small businesses, supporting livelihoods and endorsing the bravery of creative enterprise. Thank you.
We have always felt that Texan Art Schools was a bit confusing for our customers, especially those just getting to know us; what did we have to do with Texas or Texans?!? Were we a school?? Or did we sell art supplies??
However, it wasn't easy to find a new name for such an iconic business that's been around for so long, we really wanted to find the right name...
We embrace your interest in our business and would love to hear from you. Feel free to contact us to chat about your experiences at Creative & Brave or to hear more about our stores and incredible stockists.
