Bravefriend Apparel and Design

I’ve been an artist all my life. Over the last decade, Brave Friend Apparel & Design has grown from screening my art for band shirts to becoming a full custom design shop, offering screen printing, embroidery, original illustrations, logo design, advertising and promotional goods.

The company’s roots were created when my beloved dog, Tanner woke me up during a house fire with just enough time for me to pull my best friend from the flames to safety. Unfortunately, Tanner did not make it out alive, giving his life for ours. I lost everything I owned that was important to me, especially my brave friend, Tanner. From these ashes I rebuilt my life and decided to take a different path and follow my talents by creating Brave Friend Apparel & Design. My drawing of Tanner became my company’s logo, thus allowing his memory to live on vicariously through the company. I thought I would never see him again but now I see his face on so many of my products where every I travel. 

I take a lot of pride in maintaining a small business attitude with every customer, from the smallest individual order to serving any large corporation’s advertisement needs- each are treated with the same personal values that this company was founded on.
