As a native Texan, I grew up believing that Texans are kind, hard working, neighborly, respectful of our differences and generous. I made this artwork as a reminder to embrace the values that make Texas a welcoming place to live for everyone. You are welcome in Texas if you are a native or an import. It does not matter your religion, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, race, nationality, political beliefs, or abilities/disabilities. All that matters is that you are kind and compassionate.
