MORE THAN WORDS

Brother's Keeper

Art is a journey. A wandering path between brushstrokes and melodies.

As artists, we watch and we listen. Beauty and sadness are one and the same. We lay down colors and chords to find our way through endless possibilities and carve out our compositions late into the night. We endeavor to give voices to those who have been silenced and faces to those who have been forgotten. Our search is for stories untold.

Join us on our journey. John Francis and Tessa Meier collaborate to reveal these 5 stories – in brushstrokes and in melodies, in more than words.
